Good question :-D

A. by manufacturers and utility companies as product demonstrators and publicists,
Correct.

B. to be product demonstrators and publicists by manufacturers and utility companies,
This choice is wrong since "employed by manufacturers and utility companies" conveys better meaning

C. to demonstrate and publicize their products by manufacturers and utility companies
"the contributions of the women employed to demonstrate and publicize sth by sb" is awkward.

D. by manufacturers and utility companies to be demonstrators and publicists of their products
This choice makes "who" refer to "their products"

E. by manufacturers and utility companies to demonstrate and publicize their products
This choice makes "who" refer to "their products"

A. by manufacturers and utility companies as product demonstrators and publicists,- correct use of 'as' to show a role being performed.

D. by manufacturers and utility companies to be demonstrators and publicists of their products - wrong- employed to be is not not the correct usage.

Let's make some backend calculation. The relative pronoun 'who" cannot refer to anything other than humans and only A has humans as demonstrators and publicists. Therefore, A.

Hi Folks,

Sometimes, paying heed to non-underlined portion helps eliminate quick answers. Useful trick by egmat

Who can not refer to products, do D and E are out.

Modifier by manufacturers and utility companies is placed incorrectly in B and C.
This modifier is correctly modifying contributions as in (A)

Hope this helps.

Hit Kudos of you liked the solution!!

Although a number of excellent studies narrate the development of domestic technology and its impact on housewifery, these works do not discuss the contributions of the women employed by manufacturers and utility companies as product demonstrators and publicists, who initially promoted new and unfamiliar technology to female consumers.

Option A is correct because relative pronoun "WHO" correctly modifies "demonstrators and publicists".

please help in collecting Kudos. :)

A. by manufacturers and utility companies as product demonstrators and publicists,
B. to be product demonstrators and publicists by manufacturers and utility companies, : - Who can refer to human being not companies. so B is wrong
C. to demonstrate and publicize their products by manufacturers and utility companies : here their should refer to manufacturer and "THEIR" is written before manufacturer.
D. by manufacturers and utility companies to be demonstrators and publicists of their products - "who" wrongly refers to product.
E. by manufacturers and utility companies to demonstrate and publicize their products

Hello daag,

Thank you for the explanation. I wanted to ask whether "who" follows the "touch rule" i.e does it always modify the entity preceding it.

I am aware that "which" does not ALWAYS follow the touch rule e.g I killed the snake with scales, which lived in the burrow behind my house. WHICH modifies the snake and not scales.

Please clarify. Thanks

Hi
Whether 'who' modifies a proximate or distant noun, it is clear that it can modify only human beings and not companies. The reference of a relative pronoun is to be pondered over when there is no forthright eligible noun to modify in front but is found after ignoring some unnecessary interventions such as prepositional phrases.

Even assuming that 'who' may modify the demonstrators and the publicists in B and D, that can be only after they can ignore the intruders.

We can now see why B and D do not fit in as well as A does.

Is it necessary for 'who' to refer to the noun immediately preceding it? I am not convinced that the decision on elimination can be made on the basis of 'who'. Since 'who' always refers to humans, it occurs to me that 'who' refers to women in all these sentences.
