Usage of Apparently is right in A

A. apparently that of a shepherd who is thought to have lived CORRECT

B. that of a shepherd, apparently, who was thought to live

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

A

From a quick scan of the answers, you see the main difference is between choices that use is and choices that use was. Now, use logic. Pay attention to the time clue recently The shepherd's body was only recently found, so it wouldn't make sense to put the discussion of "How long ago did he live?" in the past. Is, in (A) and (D), must be correct. It's also
important to be able to recognize and quickly eliminate illogical choices like (D). (D)'s wording doesn't really make sense. If the dead person is "thought of as apparently living," he wouldn't be a corpse.
