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.)

What really wrong with C?

Noun Phrase- to communal ownership of land- True, of land modifies ownership! Interrogrative adjectives modfies ownership of land

1) The same
3) land, respected by the Spainards and a pre-Columbian form of ownership.- Do these two modifiers modify "Communal ownership of land"?

Do these two modifiers modify "Communal ownership of land"?

In (C) it sounds like the land is being respected by two things:

1. Spaniards
2. Ownership

In fact, neither of thise things are respecting land. Further, land is not being respected.

The ownership is respected, and it is respected by Spaniards. Need to follow this logic...

Actually, JP, I looked at a past example and saw that this interrogative noun clause seems to fit what ETS is looking for.

In (C) it sounds like the land is being respected by two things:

1. Spaniards
2. Ownership

In fact, neither of thise things are respecting land. Further, land is not being respected

Jp, you contradict yourself here. Explain on what 3) land, respected by the Spainards and a pre-Columbian form of ownership modify.
Thank you

so, the return is not to the land but to OWNERSHIP -- that is a trick. At least I feel so.
