this one looks good..

Festivals features the preparation of food, blahblah .... So, looking for this paraphrase.

A - Aho,..., they featured - wrong
B - Festivals were held in Aho - NO. Aho is not a place, but a person.
C - Aho,...,held festivals featuring the preparation of food - awkward
D - is better over E. Why? 'festivals that featured' - all these words together makes more clear than 'festivals in her home that featured'.

D for me.

I got E Also was down to D and E, but felt that "In her home, Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, " was a bit wordy.

I strongly feel it has to be between C and E. I will go with E

D for me. E is wrong because, the clause 'that features ...' should describe the festival and the home.

I got D. Same reasoning as others. It is the festivals not home featuring ..... E is not clear on that.

My choice is â€˜Eâ€™ because â€˜thatâ€™ should be used in this case. â€˜whichâ€™ cannot be used because â€˜whichâ€™ will be used only in setences to give additional non-important information
So, between choice â€˜Dâ€™ & â€˜Eâ€™ - â€˜Dâ€™ is awkward.

I'd go with D
C's relative clause can be simplified to D's appositive form

ie Mark, an astronaut, was an intelligent man --> appositive form is more concise
ie Mark, who was an astronaut, was an intelligent man --> relative clause wordier hence wrong on the GMAT

E has a misplaced modifier problem with "that" being introduced after wrong noun "home" which makes sentence ambiguous. It is as if the home which featured when it should have been Aho.

And yes, please try to post the OAs within 2 days. Thank you.

The sentence â€˜In her homeâ€™ in â€˜Dâ€™ has a pronoun â€˜herâ€™ with no antecedent, so this should be ruled out.
