Camille Claudet worked continuously through the 1880â€™s and early 1890â€™s with the sculptor Auguste Rodin; since there are very few signed works of hers, the inescapable conclusion seems to be one of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodinâ€™s enormous production of that period.

(A) inescapable conclusion seems to be one of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodinâ€™s enormous production of that period
(B) conclusion of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodinâ€™s enormous production of that period seems inescapable
(C) conclusion seems inescapable that part of Rodinâ€™s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet
(D) conclusion of part of Rodinâ€™s enormous production of that period having been conceived and executed by Claudet seems inescapable
(E) seemingly inescapable conclusion is that Claudet would have conceived and executed part of Rodinâ€™s enormous production of that period

i like E, but not completley comfortable with 'Claudet would have'

(E) seemingly inescapable conclusion is that Claudet would have conceived and executed part of Rodinâ€™s enormous production of that period

Only C is grammatically correct and gives the correct meaning.

"inescapable conclusion seems to be one of" in A doesnt sound well.

E is my choice.

Should be (C).

In (E) the 'would have' is redundant

Jumping on the (E) train here for the correct modifier (after the semiclon).

I'll try.

Since the conclusion is in the present, I formed the question: What is the inescapable conclusion?
You'll see that only C correctly answers this. "The inescapable conclusion is that".

In E, use of "would have" implies that she, in fact, did not conceive and execute part of Rodin's work.

Not the perfect explanation, but that's how my mind works.

Thanks for the explanation Anand .. Like others I tripped on this one..

IMHO
"The" should be followed by a noun or adjective and not a verb or an adverb.

Camille Claudet worked continuously through the 1880â€™s and early 1890â€™s with the sculptor Auguste Rodin; since there are very few signed works of hers, the conclusion seems inescapable that part of Rodinâ€™s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet .

In option E I doubt " the seemingly"

An adverb after the is a doubtful one

Here, the chances are between "conclusion of + noun " and conclusion that + sentence". Using (conclusion that + sentence( makes the original sentence clearer, IMO. That approach leaves us with options C and E, since A is awkward.

In E, tense usage is wrong. "would have" implies sth that we have not been informed. So, the answer is C.
