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

tough one though

Ask the below questions to yourself..
What seems inescapable? .. conclusion.
Why conclusion seems inescapable?

I will go for C.
C describes best.

Conclusion seems inescapable.. because.. part of Rodin's Production exceuted and conceived by Claudet.

In other optons.. separting "conclusion" and "seems inescapable" --> makes sentences ambigous.. and awkard.

in E . seemingly inescapable conclusion --> awkward
also using conditional form "would have been" distorts the original meaning..

I'll go with E

A,B,D can be taken out because 'conclusion of claudet' is incorrect.

E is better than C because of the following reason

'C' has many more words between 'conclusion' and 'that' than does E. Ideally the fewer the words the better the clarity is. This is evident in E

Hence, I think E is better

A is wrong because seems to be one of

I think E is right.

conclusion that seems inescapable or inescapable conclusion any thing is at best prediction based on lack of signed stuff.

would have expresses that prediction.

C establishes as if it were verified. Does not it? Also C is in passive voice. we can avoid one if we have another choice in active.

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

It seems to say that some thing else is the conclusion. Does not say that Rodin's enormous prod itself is the conclusion.

I agree with the previous post, I think the major difference between C and E is the passive voice vs. the active. I'll go with E.

E for me. I thought C, but realized that "the conclusion seems inescapable" is awkward.

Thanks, OA is C.

Here is whatever I understood:

(A) inescapable conclusion seems to be one of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period
- Here either it should be "one of a part" or "one of parts". But "one of part" is wrong.
(B) conclusion of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period seems inescapable
- "seems inescapable" is wrongly modifying "period"
(C) conclusion seems inescapable that part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet
- Though passive but correct
(D) conclusion of part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period having been conceived and executed by Claudet seems inescapable
- "seems inescapable" is wrongly modifying "conceive and execution"
(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 wrong use here.
