Repeating the same thing n number of times or spending in lakhs is not a solution to get to the mark. Its about how correct your approach is.

I think you actually should talk to some experts before proceeding as you are not clear on the strategy.

Moreover, after the lines "I have already convey my mother that in your oldage if you fall ill,please have a 10-15 sleeping pills and die neither I nor my siblings will be around her to take care", I really think you should reach out to a counselor soon.

D is incorrect because it has meaning issue. As I said before, you are not clear on the strategy.

So, my dear friend, Do as I suggested above.

The pronoun "them" is the problem in E. The usage of noun "illustrations" within a prepositional phrase, which is used in the same clause as the pronoun "them" is used is awkward. "Illustrations" should have been directly used rather than been referred by a pronoun.

Option E and the similar examples below are in fact senseless:
In my first class, I carefully attended it.
On the floor, the boy fell on it.

SPLIT 1) VERB PARALLELISM. THE WORD "CAPITALIZED" GOES WITH COORDINATED AND NOT WITH "COORDINATING". A AND B ARE OUT.

SPLIT 2) MODIFIER. BEATRIX POTTER IS PUT AS IF SHE IS MODIFYING THE PREVIOUS PARTICIPLE. IN FACT, IT SHOULD BE THE ILLUSTRATIONS WHAT FOLLOWS THE FIRST PARTICIPLE, NOT BEATRIX. D IS OUT.

SPLIT 3) MODIFIER. IN E YOU GET PARTICIPLES (IN HER BOOK ILLUSTRATIONS) + PARTICIPLE (CAREFULLY COORDINATED THEM WITH..) + AND + 2ND VERB (CAPITALIZED). WE DONT EVEN HAVE A FIRST VERB AND YOU ARE ALREADY JUMPING TO A SECOND VERB. E IS OUT.

SPLIT 4) MODIFIER. YOU HAVE TWO MODIFIERS FOLLOWING EACH OTHER, NOT THE GMAT TYPE OF CORRECT ANSWER. A, B AND E ARE OUT.

Manhattan GMAT SC Navigator Explanation.

Split1) Modifier. the structure of the original sentence is as follows: Subject + ,modifier 1, + modifier 2 + verb...This is problematic because the subject and the verb are too far apart. Modifier 1 = prepositional phrase = does not clearly modify the noun in the preceding phrase (Breatrix), what is modifier 1 supposed to modify? = something that takes place within the illustration? => in this case the best way to say this is: Beatrix Potter capitalized, in her book illustrations => that would be more logical because modifier 1 is referring to Breatrix in the original sentence and that's a weird construction. Modifier 2 refers back to "book illustrations", also uses the pronoun "them" which is looking back to "book illustrations" => this is wrong because "book illustrations" is part of a prepositional phrase (in her book illustrations) which is referring to something else that is not clear what. Very confusing structure. If you have two modifiers one after the other, it should be extremely clear what they both are referring to, this is not the case in the original sentence. A, B and E have this issue.

Split 2) Meaning. The intended meaning of the sentence is: Beatrix Potter coordinated her illustrations and her narratives, she coordinated between the two. In D) it says : "Coordinated with her narratives, Potter, in her book" = this choice says that Beatrix Potter is coordinated with her narratives = wrong meaning.

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

i had the same question and thus looked up for this sc problem in the og 16, and found out that in the original question the comma is underlined too.

The logical meaning of the sentence:

The book illustrations are carefully coordinated with the narrative that Beatrix Potter made...

A) As per the given construction, the "illustrations" are "coordinating" which is illogical.

B) This option commits the same mistake as A does.

C) "which she carefully coordinated with her narratives" clearly modifies illustrations. This construction is logical.

D) This option implies that Beatrix Potter coordinated herself with her narratives. This is illogical.

E) The modifier and modified entity are not close to one another.

Thus, option C.

Hi ,

I have few queries in reference to this question.

1) Can a pronoun refer to a noun in the preceding prepositional phrase? - Can "Them" refer to illustrations in this case (as indicated in question).

2) Since a verb-ed modifier modifies the nearby noun, can a verb-ed modifier modify the noun in the preceding prepositional phrase? - Can "carefully coordinated" modify "illustartions" as in option 'E'.

Reagrds.

keen observation and love of the natural world.

A. Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives,
Placement of modifier phrase “carefully coordinating …” gives an impression that it modifies “book illustrations” …as that is the subject of the clause preceding the modifier phrase.

B. In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
Same error as A

C. In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
Correct ans

D. Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations
Verb-ed modifier “carefully coordinates” illogically modifies the subject “Beatrix Potter”

E. Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and
Again, illogical meaning.

This is the case where 2 modifiers have been used referring to the same subject. This error has to be identified and rectified.
We have to make such a sentence which does not really has two initial modifiers; we can have a structure where it's really one initial modifier, with another modifier embedded inside it,
i.e.
(In her book illustrations(, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives),) Beatrix Potter...

This structure is present in C hence C is correct
