Where is the question from? It's a very badly written copy of an LSAT question:

critic-works-of-literature-often-present-protagonists-who-111965.html

The original LSAT question makes sense, but this one doesn't (they lost the logic of the right answer when they tried to rephrase the end of the question stem), so if you're going to study it at all, study the original version.
