What is " in addition to her work" is "Leakey's contributions to" instead of "Leakey" herself. A, B and C are out.
"discovery" in D is better than " discovering" in E.
I choose D.

D

In addition should modify some 'work'. A, B and C are out.
E uses awkward phrasing 'include her discovering'

we need "documenation" to make the pharase ||

so C, D and E are left...

in C its wordy and awkard..in addition to her blah blah, mary key' work makes more sense. E is not || either, with discovering not being || with documentation...

D it is..

go B go..

Could someone explain how it can be D? How can "Leakey's contributions" modify 'her'?

Please provide OA.

A close call between C and D. On the exam day, I would choose C.

Don't think we can expect an answer from the original author. Does anyone else know what OA to this question is?

(A) Leakey contributed to archaeology with her discovery of the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and painstakingly documenting

(B) Leakey contributed to archaeology by her discovery of the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and by painstakingly documenting

(C) Leakey was a contributor to archaelogy with her discovery of the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and with her painstaking documentation of

I think A is correct.
In addition to her work on the miocene homicide fosiil record, Mary Leakey contributed to archaelogy with her discovery of the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and painstakingly documenting East African paintings.


We need her to refer Mary Leakey... Also, in B is passive and it sounds like "her discovery " is doing not the Mary Leakey.

So in given option A is the best.

I think it is A, her work on the Miocene homicide fossil record and other contribution are separate. Mary Leaker is the correct modifier here

For all the supporters of 'D'......I have a question..
:lol:

In addition to her work on the miocene homicide fosiil record, .....

Doesn't it expect a noun rather than a possesive after the comma??
