B says: Ezra Pound considered late 19th-century American poetry not as a distinct formal repertoire informed by its own ideology, but

B is a typical example of colloquial english !! ----->u never consider X as Y ; u always consider X Y !!

Should be past tense so the verb "is" is incorrect in A. E doesn't use "but" to contrast Witman's and Pound and D does not use Ezra Pound after the clause ending with Witman to contrast the two view points of the subjects.

B and C are left and B is incorrect because it tries to use the idiom "not as... but as" but does not include "as" after but.

Answer is C.

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



C

Pick up on clues. The sentence begins In contrast to, so there has to be some kind of contrast. Problem is, the original version doesn't give you one. It uses the connector and to join the sentence halves. Scanning choices, we see that (B), (C), and (D) all end with but This makes sense-American poetry is not distinct but an outgrowth. However, (D) uses the unnecessary it was considered by. Avoid the passive when you can. Finally, every time you see a connector like not... but, remember you need parallelism between the part of the sentence following not and the part following but (C) gives it to you.
