Although I chose C, I am not very convinced with "which she carefully....".

Should'nt it be "which were carefully coordinated...."

Both are alright:
In the first case, "which" is used as an object (the doer of the action (she) is the subject, "which" is the object - active voice).
In your example "which" is used as subject (hence passive voice - doer of the action (she) is NOT the subject). Another example:

I have a pet dog, which my mother does not like. Correct (the relative clause is in active voice - "which" object of the clause).
I have a pet dog, which is not liked by my mother. Correct (the relative clause is in passive voice - "which" subject of the clause).

Thanks! This helps. :)

mikemcgarry : Hey Mike, I hope you are having a great weekend. I was working on this OG problem and was analyzing the solution, when I came across your video lesson on this particular SC. In the video, you have mentioned that Choice E can not be correct because it does not have two full working verbs- while we have "capitalized" i.e a full working verb after the comma, we don't have a working verb before "and", I was wondering whether this is true and would need some guidance please. What I understand from the Choice E is that " Beatrix Potter carefully coordinated them with her narratives and capitalized...... "

Since she is the main doer of the action, it looks to me that both coordinated and communicated are the main verbs, and this is a correct grammatical construction. So I really don t see the point that we just have one full working verb here- i.e CAPITALIZED. I believe that the word COORDINATED also performs the same function.(obviously, I removed the "in her book illustrations" phrase as it was a non-essential modifier.)

Now, I chose answer C to this problem, and the reason I chose C over E was that in Choice C, the sentence after removing the non-essestial modifier looks like this :

Choice C after refining : In her book illustrations, Beatrix Potter capitalized on her keen observation and love of the natural world.

While Choice E looks like this :
Beatrix Potter carefully coordinated them with her narratives and capitalized on her keen observation and love of the natural world.

Looks like Choice E is talking very generically and losing its focus on the book, which has been clearly defined in Choice C. Have I refined the 2 choices correctly and is my thinking process correct?

Can you please help me this Mike? I hope I am asking the right questions. Thanks Much.
