IMO , do not compare including with ranging from....I guess both are correct...we can easily eliminate the options even without comparing the including Vs ranging from


(A) including paintings, for example, in the Sistine Chapel, to sculpture, for example,--- From X...to Y is the correct idiom
(B) including paintings, for example, in the Sistine Chapel, to sculpture, like--- Like is incorrect , such as should be used for giving example
(C) including paintings, such as those in the Sistine Chapel, and sculpture, as--- Sculpture as---should be Sculpture such as
(D) ranging from paintings, such as those in the Sistine Chapel, to sculpture, such as- Correct
(E) ranging from paintings, such as in the Sistine Chapel, and sculpture, such as- same error as in option A


Experts please reply on my understanding of Including Vs ranging

Hi Experts,
Any difference between usage of including and ranging?
How is such as and as different?
I think as can be used to show examples as in (C)

These are completely different expressions. "Ranging" only makes sense if we say something like "ranging from X to Y." "Including" introduces examples of some sort.

"Such as" introduces examples, but "as", by itself, does not. "As" can be used in thousands of different contexts in English, but it can't stand alone to introduce an example.

  • I often eat foods such as burritos and meatballs. --> Correct, since burritos and meatballs are examples of foods I eat. (Mmm... burritos.)
  • I often eat foods as burritos and meatballs. --> nonsense, pretty much

I hope this helps!

Dear Expert,

Since "ranging" is modifying "works", must the comma after "works" be ommitted? With the comma "ranging" seems to modify the subject.

Kind regards,

Manuel
