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

Can anyone explain why the answer is not B. Between B and C, i will choose B as C is in passive voice and GMAT does not perfer sentense in passive voice when active voice can do.

Why don't you underline the sentence. Even others are spending their time solving the question.

I chose A because no other choice has the correct idiom -"seems to be".

I think there is some problem with the options in this case. If C is correct the the correct part will be-
conclusion seems to be inescapable

I was torn between (A) and (E).

Finally chose (E). What is the OA?

I am stuck between B and C. I'll peak B because it seems as that modifiers are in the right place and C uses passive voice.

I am confused b/w A and E, but E is short and correct usage of adverb+adj+noun sounds better. Can we have the OA?

(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
[...period seems inescapable - This is awkward style saying the period rather than the conclusion seems inescapable. Incorrect]

(C) conclusion seems inescapable that part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet
[Similar to B. INESCAPABLE is an adjective and here it is misplaced and says that CONCLUSION is something which is trying to escape. Incorrect]

(D) conclusion of part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period having been conceived and executed by Claudet seems inescapable
[Passive voice -conceived and executed. Changed meaning that Claudet seems inescapable. Incorrect]

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

(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

C. or E. on first blush. A,B, and D. are very awkward and certainly not correct. So, now what is the difference? Which has a flaw or even a partial flaw. okay E seems to have the 'would have conceived and executed' where no subjunctive is called for. C. it reads better and I don't see a flaw.

If you found my comments helpful, please give kudos. (one more needed)

(A) inescapable conclusion seems to be one of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period
[color=#FF0040]one of Cludet just doesn't sound right to me[/color]
(B) conclusion of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period seems inescapable
[color=#FF0040]seems inescapable needs to be next to the subject it is modifying conclusion[/color]
(C) conclusion seems inescapable that part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet
Prefer E as this is passive mood
(D) conclusion of part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period having been conceived and executed by Claudet seems inescapable
See reasons for both C and D above
(E) seemingly inescapable conclusion is that Claudet would have conceived and executed part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period

Correct

OA please!!!

confused between 'B' and 'C'. Finally choosed 'B'. 'C' is passive also conclusion seems inescapable that part.../ Here that doesnt clearly refer its antecedent, is it noun conclusion or the noun inescapable. so rejected 'C'. Can we OA please?

I think Answer is B:

(A) inescapable conclusion seems to be one [strike]of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period[/strike]
(B) conclusion [strike]of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period[/strike]seems inescapable
(C) conclusion seems inescapable that part [strike]of Rodin’s enormous production of that period[/strike] was conceived and executed by Claudet
(D) conclusion [strike]of part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period having been conceived and executed by Claudet[/strike] seems inescapable
(E) seemingly inescapable conclusion is that Claudet would have conceived and executed part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period


The reasons are as follows:
1. SEEMS is the verb which is a linking verb and must be followed by an Adjective.
As in the quote I have struck out the parts that can be eliminated due to prepositional phrase.

A - Incorrect: Inescable conclusion seems to be one -> Makes no sense.
E - Incorrect: 'seemingly inescable conclusion' ... Here seemingly is modifying inescable and hence changing the meaning completely.
B,C, D - All seem to be correct... but C and D are in Passive voice.
Additionally, for C we have a Misplaced modifier as 'part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet' should modify 'conclusion' and not 'inescapable'

D - I think(but not sure) 'having been' is incorrect tense... moreover it is Passive.

That leaves me with the Answer B - which has correct modifier and tense.

(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 of - Claudet conceiving & executing etc.... looks vague

(B) conclusion of Claudet conceiving and executing part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period seems inescapable -
- sounds like a run-on sentence,
(C) conclusion seems inescapable that part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet
-Perfect , Clear and concise.
(D) conclusion of part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period having been conceived and executed by Claudet seems inescapable - preposition double usage
(E) seemingly inescapable conclusion is that Claudet would have conceived and executed part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period[/quote] - adverb modifying something it shouldn't

I dont agree, I believe "part of Rodin’s enormous production of that period was conceived and executed by Claudet" is modifying conclusion without doubt,

conclusion as the subject, seems as the verb, inescapabale as the object, the above part modifies the subject correctly.

I think it is C. I thought E at first then saw the "would have" which didn't seem correct.

As I understand a Noun Modifier should touch the noun it modifies.Here the Modifying clause is near 'Inescapable' rather than 'Conclusion'. So I feel this is a Misplaced Modifier. Pkease correct me if I am wrong with explanations.

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.
