Dante Rossetti and his colleagues, in calling their group the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, sought a return to the classical ideals of painting that held sway before Raffaello, to what governed the work of 15th century artists such as Sandro Botticelli.

This sentence has no errors. Elements " to the classical ideals.." and "to what governed..." are parallel.

A) Raffaello, to what governed the work of 15th century artists such as Sandro Botticelli
Correct.

B) Raffaello, artistic principles that would govern the work of 15th century artists such as Sandro Botticelli
Incorrect. The phrase "artistic principles.." is not parallel to " to the classical ideals.."

C) Raffaello who governed the work of 15th century artists like Sandro Botticelli
Incorrect. Parallelism error and incorrect use of "like".

D) Raffaello by which the work of 15th century artists such as Sandro Botticelli was governed
Incorrect. Parallelism error

E) Raffaello that had governed the work of 15th century artists like Sandro Botticelli
Incorrect. Parallelism error. "that had governed.." creates illogical meaning

A) Raffaello, to what governed the work of 15th century artists such as Sandro Botticelli --- Correct choice

B) Raffaello, artistic principles that would govern the work of 15th century artists such as ---; 'would govern’ is a wrong tense of the verb for a past event; simply 'governed' is right 2. “Artistic principles” is an unnecessary intrusion that changes the meaning.

C) Raffaello who governed the work of 15th century artists like Sandro Botticelli -- Raffaello did not govern anything as per the text --like is also wrong

D) Raffaello by which the work of 15th century artists such as Sandro Botticelli was governed--- 'By which' refers to the classical ideas and should be separated by a comma before ‘ by which’. Otherwise ‘by which’ will tend to modify Raffaello, which is meaningless

E) Raffaello that had governed the work of 15th century artists like Sandro Botticelli – Raffaello that governed is wrong reference and like is also incorrect.

hi daagh,

could you please provide your comments for option A?

generally in parallelism we make a list and then we use a connector (AND) to connect all the elements of the list. how here we are connecting the elements.

please clarify


Thanks

HI
Have I used anywhere in my comment the word –parallel-?
The point is that I went through some simple principles such as the use of 'like' for examples, usage of the comma for modifiers plus the meaning route.
I didn’t look at parallelism at all because, I got my answer otherwise and was happy not to delve more.

For the meaning route, these factors should be kept in view.

There were two styles of painting that this topic is concerned about. One was the earlier classical style prevalent before the Raffaello style, a post-15th-century style. Sandro belonged to the earlier classical style. Obviously, authoring a non-classical style, Raffaello could not have influenced artists who existed before him. This much minimum one can infer from the text. In the light of this thoughts, one can see how all the choices sans A have fatal meaning errors.
