Could any of the experts comment on that?

I don't know why B should be the OA. I thought that a personal pronoun needs something to reference to, which should be mentioned before the first mentioning of the word the personal pronoun refers to.

Hey gota900,

No expert here but I think there are no hard and fast rules for such usage. A pronoun can be used in the beginning of the sentence as long as the pronoun correctly refers to a subject that comes in later part of the sentence.

Another reason to choose B is the sentence introduces a contrast which makes the meaning/intention clearer.

Cheers!

hi

please refer to the intended meaning of the sentence.. From the read it seems to state that dorris lessing will be remembered for her early books than for her recent books infuenced by sufism.

A. Having recently published a series of science fiction books influenced by Sufism, Doris Lessing will likely--Incorrect, Having seems to suggest that doris lessing worte books on sufism first and then wrote books for which she will be rembered. WRONG MEANING

B. Although she has recently published a series of science fiction books influenced by Sufism, Doris Lessing is likely to---COrrect, meaning ,modifier and dependent clause is correctly placed. Remember pronoun can be placed anywhere in the sentence if it makes sense. just go by correct subject and pronoun sense

C. She has recently published a series of science fiction books influenced by Sufism, and Doris Lessing will likely--Incorrect, changes the intended contrast

D. In spite of recently publishing a series of science fiction books influenced by Sufism, Doris Lessing should likely---Incorrect usgae of should

E. Recently publishing a series of science fiction books influenced by Sufism, Doris Lessing may likely---Incorrect, May and likely are redundant

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



B

(B), using Although, makes clear the contrast between Lessing's recent work and her betterknown early work. (A), (C), and (E) don't make that contrast clear. Also, is likely to be is more idiomatic than will likely be in (A) and (C), should likely be in (D), or may likely be in (E). (B) is correct.
