Hogarth's engravings, which provide a vivid portrait of eighteenth-century London, are of interest to both artists and historians.

A. are of interest to both

B. are interests both for

C. are both interesting to

D. is of interest to both

E. is interesting for both

Subject ; Hogarth's earnings .....................plural subject. So verb must be plural.

Thus we can eliminate D and E.

Option C : it must be interest , not interesting . Cancel option C.

Option B: Both must be placed before "for" .

Thus option A is the correct answer.

Conveys the meaning. Succinct and unambiguous.

B. are interests both for
Hogarth's engravings are not implied to be interests [favorite pastimes] of artisans and historians.

C. are both interesting to
only one thing is referred to here (i.e.: Hogarth's engravings), not two

D. is of interest to both
Hogarth's engravings is a plural subject hence is is used wrongly here.

E. is interesting for both
Same error as Option D

Correct choice: Option (A)

Some Kudo's to keep me motivated?
