(A) He was an orphan, and Kyle
(B) An orphan, Kyle
(C) Orphan that he was, Kyle
(D) Kyle has been an orphan and he
(E) Being an orphan, Kyle


Answer choice B.

A is incorrect because he doesn’t have a preceeding noun.

C is incorrect because that cannot refer to a human.

D is not parallel.

E can be eliminated because B has an omitted being.

B is more concise

Answer choice B.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Choices A is not efficient. The use of ‘he was’ is not necessary, nor can ‘he was’ be used without first mentioning a noun. D does not have parallel structure in terms of the tenses. Choices C and E are inefficient. Choice B is the most efficient option and is therefore the correct answer.
