Christina Rossetti is considered one of the most accomplished poets of the Nineteenth Century, which is remarkable not only because women poets were often undervalued, also because her poetry exhibits none of the self-consciousness about the act of writing that was a hallmark of her contemporaries.

(A) which is remarkable not only because women poets were often undervalued, also because her poetry exhibits
(B) which is remarkable not only because women poets were often undervalued, but also because it exhibits that her poetry has
(C) which is not only remarkable because women poets were often undervalued, as remarkable because her poetry also exhibits
(D) which is remarkable not only because women poets were often undervalued, but also because her poetry exhibits
(E) which is remarkable not only because of the undervaluing of women poets, but also because it exhibits that her poetry had

The strangest thing about this sentence is that in my opinion each answer choice here must be wrong because which can not modify a phrase and in this case it looks like 19th century is remarkable...

i guess the answer is B. the clause starting with "which" here is used to describe the 19th century that Christina Rossetti was in. hope this helps!

D looks to me fine. What is OA?

Eliminated A & C using "Not only ... but also" idiom
E looks longer

B/W B & D, D looks better

Cheers!

I think B has problem with meaning. How can 19th century exhibit anything about someone's poetry?

Ravy,
Thx for your reply, but as I've already indicated, "which" can't modify phrases in GMAT

OA D, but imo the problem is incorrectly constructed by Prinston. According to MGMAT all the answer choices with "which" modifiying a phrase would be condidered wrong

I agree with you Yangstr. Now since 'which' is present in all options we dont have to worry about it and D is best in the lot.
