Camille Claudet worked continuously through the 1880’s and early 1890’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 Rodin’s enormous production of that period.

(A) inescapable conclusion seems to be one of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period

(B) conclusion of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period seems inescapable

(C) conclusion seems inescapable that part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet

(D) conclusion of part of Rodin’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 Rodin’s enormous production of that period

Heck, this is difficult.
by POE,

E is wrong "seemingly inescapable" is awkward.
D is wrong for "having been", also "conclusion of" sounds incorrect.
A is wrong because "seems to be one of " is not concise.
B is wrong : "conclusion of" sounds incorrect

I could not find anything wrong in C. So C.

Not sure though.

E

(A) inescapable conclusion seems to be one of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s - ackward and wordy

(B) conclusion of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period seems inescapable -- claudet is not concluding here, the previous phrase has claudet as object.

(C) conclusion seems inescapable that part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet -- tense is mismatched. since there are very few - is present and conclusion is made as past.

(D) conclusion of part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period having been conceived and executed by Claudet seems inescapable - conclusion is misplaced

(E) seemingly inescapable conclusion is that Claudet would have conceived and executed part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period - looks OK. seemingly inescapable - both modifies conclusion and verb is in present tense.

(A) inescapable conclusion seems to be one of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period [wordy]

(B) conclusion of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period seems inescapable [Since + present perfect]

(C) conclusion seems inescapable that part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet [Passive voice and seemingly inescapable conclusion is much better]

(D) conclusion of part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period having been conceived and executed by Claudet seems inescapable [Awkward]

(E) seemingly inescapable conclusion is that Claudet would have conceived and executed part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period [ Since and present perfect tense – hold it]

To me, B,C and D are changing the meaning by using "inescapable" as adverb. E is wordy. Hence, A shuld be the answer.

IMO C


(A) inescapable conclusion seems to be one of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period--------seems to be one is wordy

(B) conclusion of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period seems inescapable------------conclusion of conceiving and executing is awkward

(C) conclusion seems inescapable that part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet-------------best choice

(D) conclusion of part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period having been conceived and executed by Claudet seems inescapable----------having been conceived is not required

(E) seemingly inescapable conclusion is that Claudet would have conceived and executed part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period--------would have conceived is changing the meaning
