It is Degler who is summarizing not his study. Out of choice A and E..E is the better option...

a) Degler does more than merely summarizing
b) Degler’s study is more than a mere summarizing of
c) Degler has done more than a mere summarizing of
d) Degler’s study has done more than summarize merely
e) Degler does more than merely summarize


These three options can be ruled out because:
Degler can do research but not Degler's study.
Ex: Degler can call -is correct
Degler's phone can call -is incorrect

b) Degler’s study is more than a mere summarizing of
c) Degler has done more than a mere summarizing of
d) Degler’s study has done more than summarize merely



a) Degler does more than merely summarizing
e) Degler does more than merely summarize

I prefer summarize instead of summarizing

Well! because of possessive form of Deger in B and C, these options can be straight away eliminated (there is a pronoun used 'he' referring to Deger)

In E, does and summarize corresponds. correct Answer.

thanks for all the replies.

I still do not understand why summerize is better than summerizing....

I am trying to understand the relation between does and summerize at the moment,

I think,
'summarizing existing research' is a noun phrase here in A, hence 'merely', which is an adverb, doesn't fit in.
B and D gone for possessive form.
In C, use of present perfect is wrong.
E stands.
