Hi expert,

Why choice A is preferred over choice B?


B has a parallelism issue: an appositive modifier ("a form of ownership of the pre-Columbians") is made parallel to a past participle modifier ("respected by the Spaniards").



a form of ownership of the pre-Columbians and respected by the Spaniards


Can we not interpret it as--


a form of ownership
modifier --of the pre-Columbians
and
modifier-- respected by the Spaniards



More than the grammar part associated with option B, I rejected it because of meaning error.

Original Sentence: At the time of the Mexican agrarian revolution, the most radical faction, that of Zapata and his followers, proposed a return to communal ownership of land, to what had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards.

As per the meaning analysis, underlined part describes communal ownership further as a pre-Coulmbian form of ownership and this (the later) was respected by Spaniards.

Choice B: land, a form of ownership of the pre-Columbians and respected by the Spaniards

In choice B - respected by the Spaniards appears to modify communal ownership instead of pre-Coulmbian form of ownership

In addition, I feel there is a difference in meaning -
1. a pre-Columbian form of ownership
2. a form of ownership of the pre-Columbian

sayantanc2k, please correct me if I am wrong.
