Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, capitalized on her keen observation and love of the natural world.
(A) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives,
(B) In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
(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
(E) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and

Meaning: BP capitalized on her keen observation and love of natural world in her book illustrations by carefully coordinating illustrations with her narratives.

POE:
In Option A) The modifier "carefully coordinating them with her narratives" is modifying "book illustrations" as if the book illustrations are coordinating with her narratives.

Option B) Same issue as above.

Option D) "Carefully coordinated with her narratives" -> After the verb-ed modifier, we have "Beatrix Potter". It seems as if the BP is the result of coordination.

Option E) The cause and effect is removed by making it as a list.

Option C) is correct

Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, capitalized on her keen observation and love of the natural world.

(A) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, --> Verb tense coordinating - capitalized
(B) In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter --> illustrations coodinate nothing, Beatrix is the Doer. Ing-modifier after a comma modifies the preceding clause -> In her book illustrations + wrong verb tense again
(C) In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter --> correct structure 1st modifies Beatrix, 2nd (which) modifies the illustrations. Correct Verb Tense --> coordinated and capitalizedbut
(D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations --> Beatrix is not coordinated with narratives...rather illustrations
(E) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and --> "in her book illustrations" is a prepositional phrase and it modifies Beartix here, it can not be the referent of THEM here.

My two Cents.
the takeaway from this question is that..Beatrix had already coordinated her illustrations........that is why book has been published.the process is still not happening.


One more cent from me:

We know that when two events in a sentence occurred at two different points of time in the past, we are generally required to use past perfect tense for the earlier event. Then why "coordinated" is not expressed in past perfect ("coordinated" occurred prior to "capitalized").

The answer is: we should use past perfect ONLY when we want to emphasize the sequence of the events and the sequence is not clear. Nonetheless, if the sequence is obvious, we often do not need to use past perfect. Another simpler example: I went to the supermarket and bought a pound of bread.

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.


Hi sayantanc2k,
thanks so much for your explanation.

it is first for me to hear this .
would you please give me more examples?

thanks in advance
have a nice day

Option E and the similar examples below are in fact senseless:

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.

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

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

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.

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).

Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, capitalized on her keen observation and love of the natural world.

(A) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives,
- "coordinating" breaks parallelism with "capitalized". "coordinating" should be "coordinated" b/c "capitalized" is NOT UNDERLINED.

(B) In her book illustrations, carefully coordinating them with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
- same as "A"

(C) In her book illustrations, which she carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter
- correct as is

(D) Carefully coordinated with her narratives, Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations
- "carefully coordinated" illogically modifies "Beatrix Potter". also, illustrations do not capitalize...

(E) Beatrix Potter, in her book illustrations, carefully coordinated them with her narratives and
- "carefully coordinated them" = unclear. what does "them" refer to?

toughie - important takeaways:
> BP did 2 things: COORDINATED illustrations with narratives, and CAPITALIZED on her keen observation.
> Meaning here matters. Understand that the illustrations were coordinated with a narrative, so ", which" helps here.
-- Modifier error ("Carefully coordinated with her narratives, BP") = incorrect
-- "BP, ..., carefully coordinated them" = unclear

Kudos please if you find this helpful :)
