IMO C

(A) an approach which favorably contrasted with that of his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, but did not earn
(B) an approach that favorably contrasted with his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, but that did not earn
(C) an approach that favorably contrasted with that of his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, but did not earn
(D) an approach which favorably contrasted with that of his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge's, but did not earn
(E) an approach which favorably contrasted to that of his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, but did not earn for

A & C only logically compare approach with the approach.

an approach requires an essential modifier "that" instead of "which".

Correct me if I am wrong.

I have hardly seen any official question been tested on this criteria. Pls enlighten me if same is not true.

Wait doesn't D accurately compare X's approach to Y's? I don't see an error with D in this stem. Can someone shed some light?

Hi D can not be correct.
Please see D again. It has redundancy.
contrasted with that of his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge's.
End word is in possessive so it can not act as object.

In his photographic motion studies, Thomas Eakins used a single negative for several exposures, an approach which favorably contrasted with that of his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, but did not earn him as much acclaim in his lifetime, though opinions of his work have shifted dramatically since then.

(A) an approach which favorably contrasted with that of his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, but did not earn
(B) an approach that favorably contrasted with his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, but that did not earn
(C) an approach that favorably contrasted with that of his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, but did not earn
(D) an approach which favorably contrasted with that of his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge's, but did not earn
(E) an approach which favorably contrasted to that of his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, but did not earn for

which is an non-essential modifier, so a comma is required before which.
Eliminate A,D,E.
Between B and C, 'approach contrasted with the approach of his contemporary...' Hence C, correctly compares both the approaches.
Answer C.

How did you eliminate A ?
Please share your thoughts on A.
which always introduces a non essential modifier set off between comma
( of course exception being in which, from which etc)

Eg: I hate dogs that bark
( this means you hate only those dogs that bark.)

I hate dogs, which bark.
( you hate all dogs in general. One of the quality of these dogs is they bark)


Hope this helps.

Thank you = Kudos
