In her later poems, Phyllis Wheatley's blending of solar imagery, Judeo-Christian thought and figures, and the images she borrowed from ancient classicism suggesting her range and depth of influences, not the least of which is her African heritage.

(A) the images she borrowed from ancient classicism suggesting
(B) borrowing images from ancient classicism, suggests
(C) she borrowed images from ancient classicism, which suggests
(D) images borrowed from ancient classicism suggests
(E) images that she borrowed from ancient classicism, suggesting


suggesting is a modifier and not a verb in the sentence!

We cannot use suggesting because then the sentence would lack a verb which is mandatory.
For that reason option A and E are out.

Then comes the parallelism ,option B and C are not parallel to the list.

D is the correct answer with correct verb and correct parallelisn.

Identify subject: Phyllis Wheatley's blending
Identify the structure: Phyllis Wheatley's blending of X, Y, Z suggests

D is fine; it creates a full sentence with SBJ + VERB, and the list within the prepositional phrase is parallel "... blending of X, Y, Z ...".

Hi everyone, why is B wrong here? borrowing is a noun form of verb to borrow, so we get 3 nouns in parallel.


There are two types of gerunds:

1. Simple gerund: Smoking cigarettes is injurious to health. (noun out, verb in - "smoking cigarettes" can be made into a verb phrase: I am smoking cigarettes.)

2. Complex gerund: The continuous smoking of cigarettes killed him. (noun out, noun in: often preceded by an article and followed by preposition "of")

A simple gerund can NEVER be parallel to a complex gerund.

Phyllis Wheatley's blending of solar imagery: complex gerund
borrowing images from ancient classicism: simple gerund

Hence they cannot be parallel.



Can you explain noun out , verb in AND noun out, noun in => how do you use this concept ??
Thanks in advance....
