Henry never showed effort, and his essays were always pedestrian; since his latest paper is nearly flawless, the obvious conclusion seems to be one of a more advanced student researching and writing at least part of Henry’s impressive essay.

(A) obvious conclusion seems to be one of a more advanced student researching and writing at least part of Henry’s impressive essay

(B) conclusion of a more advanced student researching and writing at least part of Henry’s impressive essay seems obvious

(C) conclusion seems obvious that at least part of Henry’s impressive essay was researched and written by a more advanced student

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

DO you make a ‘conclusion that’, or ‘a conclusion of’? ‘Conclusion that’ is correct. Eliminate A, B and D. The tense is wrong in E. The simple past, as in C, is correct, rather than the past conditional, as in E. Choice C is the correct answer.
