This question is actually a test of meaning.

A and B are of course out due to modifiers. But look at C and D

Women's equal political and legal rights.

This implies women should have equal amounts of political and legal rights ( This is so absurd)

We need

equal political and legal rights for women.

Which is present only in E.

SPLIT1) WORD AFTER COMMA SHOULD BE A NOUN SUCH AS "A TREATISE" BECAUSE THE WORD AFTER THE COMMA MUST ANSWER THE QUESTION: WHAT DID LUCRETIA PUBLISHED IN 1850? ANS: A TREATSIE. A AND B ARE OUT.

SPLIT2) PARALLELISM: "AND FOR CHANGES" AT THE END OF THE SENTENCE MEANS YOU THERE IS A LIST. THE PREVIOUS PART MUST BE PARALLEL => "FOR EQUAL POLITICAL" FITS WELL. C AND D ARE OUT.

SPLIT3) VER-ING MODIFIER => WORD "ARGUING" AFTER THE COMMA => THE VERB-ING MODIFIER IS MISPLACED. WHAT WE NEED IS CLARITY. WHAT COMES AFTER THE COMMA MUST DEFINE WHAT LUCIANA PUBLISHED. INSTEAD WORD "ARGUING" AFTER COMMA IS MODIFYING THE PREVIOUS PART, NOT WHAT THE AUTHOR INTENDS TO DO. THE SUBJECT OF VER-ING AND VER-ED MODIFIERS IS LONG. A AND B ARE OUT.

A. arguing in a treatise for women to have equal political and legal rights
B. arguing in a treatise for equal political and legal rights for women
C. a treatise that advocates women’s equal political and legal rights
D. a treatise advocating women’s equal political and legal rights
E. a treatise that argued for equal political and legal rights for women

Please explain your answer.


A The present participial phrase illogically implies that "arguing" is a result of the prior action "published," but in this case the publishing does not lead to or cause the arguing. They are distinct events. To test for yourself, you can insert "because" into the sentence: "In 1850 Lucretia Mott published her Discourse on Women because she argues in a treatise for women..."
B The present participial phrase illogically implies that "arguing" is a result of the prior action "published," but in this case the publishing does not lead to or cause the arguing. They are distinct events.
C "Advocates" requires "for."
D "Advocates" requires "for."
E Correct.
