Practice Question
Question No.: SC 119
Page: 694

George Sand (Aurore Lucile Dupin) was one of the first European writers to consider the rural poor to be legitimate subjects for literature and portray these with sympathy and respect in her novels.

(A) to be legitimate subjects for literature and portray these
(B) should be legitimate subjects for literature and portray these
(C) as being legitimate subjects for literature and portraying them
(D) as if they were legitimate subjects for literature and portray them
(E) legitimate subjects for literature and to portray them


Correct Idiom is "to consider X Y
The parallelism should be between "to consider " and " to potray "

Thus E is the correct answer for the reasoning above.

E is the correct answer. In E, is 'them' used to refer 'legitimate subjects'?
Actually, I got a message from an expert about A and B. S/he says that we are not allowed to use 'these' to refer to 'people'. I did not get WHY s/he discussed about 'these'? Here, there is no people more then two. So, It's not our headache to discuss about 'these' , is not it?
Thanks expert.


"the rural poor" is a group of people, not a place, and is plural, not singular

here "them" used to refer "the rural people","Them" is used as an object, not a subject

"These" can be used with a subject and identifies which people or items are being referenced.
But here, the antecedent of “these” is not clear

Thanks



GMATNinja, mikemcgarry, and @e-gmat

Group is considered singular. Then in this sentence why are we using plural pronoun 'them' to refer to group of people?


Thanks
