A request : pls be extra careful when posting the OA. I kept scratching my head when I saw your first OA and thought how in this world can option E be a correct grammatical construction...until obviously you mentioned the correct answer.

Sometimes, seeing an answer which you are least expecting as the OA can affect your self-confidence!!!

I thought the answer to be D .

Can some one please tell me what is the difference between "with her narratives" and "by her narratives" .
Is the former usage wrong ?

For me it was a pronoun reference error, them did not refer to books or Beatrix clearly, this was solved in C.

(C) In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
(D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations Modifies Beatrix Potter

Correct answer is C


This is good explanation than that of official guide.

I choose C since we are trying to figure out the answer to the mysterious pronoun!

I'm confused. There is only one thing that "them" can be referring to in answer E.

Answer is C. E has problem with the connecting word 'and'. You cannot say that "I will go to school, and study'. Instead, the correct is " I will go to school and study"

Shouldnt C be incorrect ? I read somewhere that after comma we cant use "which"..It can be used after a noun, right ?

Good example to work with modification errors.

All answers except have clearly got modification errors.

Neat question that tests modifiers and pronouns.

Correct answer is:
(C) In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter

-- 'which' correctly modifies illustrations.
-- 'she' and 'her' correctly represent Ms. Potter.

Cheers,
Der alte Fritz.

Option A and B parallelism error. Option D and E misplaced modifiers. Leaves you with option C.
