seem is a special verb.

seem+adjective

in this pattern the subject of seem is real
you seem tired to do this job

it seem that you are good at gmat.

in this pattern, it is fake subject.

so , that-clause can go with seem verb if the subject is fake.

in choice C. the subject is real so, seem can not go with that-clause.

c is wrong grammatically.

Am I right?

"That" clause may go even with a "real" subject:
Here "that" refers to a "real" SUBJECT, and instead of the "fake" placeholder "it", an actual noun is used: "conclusion". Read the sentence as follows:

The conclusion (that part of production was conceived by Camille) seems inescapable.

Ideally the "that" clause should have been next to "conclusion".

Conditional perfect "would have" is used for a hypothetical instance that never happened in the past.

IF Sophie HAD EATEN pizza yesterday, THEN she WOULD HAVE BECOME ill.
IF Past Perfect, THEN Conditional Perfect (example from Manhattan GMAT)

The above statement implies that Sophie did not eat Pizza yesterday and did not become ill.

Camille Claudet actually conceived and executed, hence use of conditional perfect is wrong.


Can you explain why (B) is wrong?

196. 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


Imo C

A is wrong as there is no proper verb conceiving and executing are modifiers and they are modifying Claudet .
B Same mistake as A .Also there is a meaning change the conclusion seems inescapable is not the intended meaning.
C Correct as there are proper verb and that is correctly used.
D Again this is hopeless .Grave meaning error .
E Meaning change conclusion is not inescapable .

In B, the implication is that the conclusion was made by Claudet ( "conclusion of Claudet") - the part "conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period" modifies Claudet. The basic structure (after removing the modifier) of this clause is "conclusion of Claudet seems inescapable" - this construction does not make any sense.
