A. Developed in 1919 in the work of the German scholar Karl Schmidt

The method was developed as part of the scholars work. I don't see any issues.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________

B. The work of the German scholar Karl Schmidt was developed in 1919

Comma splice error. Two independent clause connected just using a "," INCORRECT
_________________________________________________________________________________________________

C. Developed in 1919, the German scholar Karl Schmidt’s work

Incorrect comparison. The scholar's work is not the method itself. The method is part of the scholars work. INCORRECT

Meaning error. It says the scholars work was developed in 1919.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________

D. Develops in 1919 in the work of the German scholar Karl Schmidt

Wrong tense in the modifier. INCORRECT
_________________________________________________________________________________________________

E. In the work of the German scholar Karl Schmidt

Meaning error. Missing the year 1919. INCORRECT
_________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hence option A

+1 for A.

A. Developed in 1919 in the work of the German scholar Karl Schmidt --> Correct, Rectifies modifier error and conveys the intended meaning of the sentence

B. The work of the German scholar Karl Schmidt was developed in 1919 --> Run on

C. Developed in 1919, the German scholar Karl Schmidt’s work --> Changes meaning

D. Develops in 1919 in the work of the German scholar Karl Schmidt

E. In the work of the German scholar Karl Schmidt --> Changes meaning

Hence, A.

E. In the work of the German scholar Karl Schmidt



KAPLAN OFFICIAL SOLUTION:




Correct Choice: (A)

The sentence is correct as written. Let’s see why the other answer choices are incorrect.

Choice (B) leaves us with two independent sentences (the“work...developed” and the “method...continued”) joined incorrectly by a comma (a “comma splice”).

Choice (C) is incorrect because the “work” (now the subject of an independent first clause) does not have a corresponding action (verb).

Choice (D) is incorrect because it uses the wrong form of the verb“develop” (which is used as an adjective in this sentence).

Choice (E) changes the meaning of the original sentence, which told us that the field began with Schmidt’s work. As the sentence is now, we are told that the field continued into the 1980s with Schmidt’s work. Remember that the original meaning of the sentence must be maintained.

A is the answer for proper modifier and meaning.
