(A) a dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery as well as for women to be emancipated
(B) her being dedicated to both the nonviolent abolishing of slavery as well as for women’s emancipation
(C) a dedication to both the nonviolent abolition of slavery and the emancipation of women
(D) that she was dedicated both to abolishing slavery nonviolently and to emancipate women
(E) her dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery and emancipation of women


Here Idiom is Both X and Y (X & Y Should be Parallel), Eliminate A & B

In D abolishing slavery nonviolently & emancipate women are not parallel (Gerund & Verb)

In E both to X and to Y or to both X & Y is correct hence E is out

Hence C

Not parallel.

(B) her being dedicated to both the nonviolent abolishing of slavery as well as for women’s emancipation

Not parallel.

It looks good. To both X and Y.

(D) that she was dedicated both to abolishing slavery nonviolently and to emancipate women

Not parallel.

(E) her dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery and emancipation of women

Not correct, both to X and Y.

So, I will choose C

Answer C.

(A) a dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery as well as for women to be emancipated - X as well as Y should be Parallel.
(B) her being dedicated to both the nonviolent abolishing of slavery as well as for women’s emancipation - Same as A
(C) a dedication to both the nonviolent abolition of slavery and the emancipation of women - Correct. Both X and Y
(D) that she was dedicated both to abolishing slavery nonviolently and to emancipate women. Both verbs should be parallel, for Both X and Y construction.
(E) her dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery and emancipation of women. Both X and Y, X should be parallel to Y


Thanks,

In keeping with her commitment to her Christian faith, Sojourner Truth demonstrated as a public speaker a dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery as well as for women to be emancipated.

(A) a dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery as well as for women to be emancipated INCORRECT BOTH X as well as Y is incorrect. Both and as well as usage in a single sentence is redundant
(B) her being dedicated to both the nonviolent abolishing of slavery as well as for women’s emancipation - INCORRECT usage of being. Also BOTH X as well as Y is incorrect. Both and as well as usage in a single sentence is redundant
(C) a dedication to both the nonviolent abolition of slavery and the emancipation of women CORRECT, BOTH X and Y form
(D) that she was dedicated both to abolishing slavery nonviolently and to emancipate women INCORRECT, BOTH TO X and TO Y form is not parallel. "To abolishing" and "To emancipate" are not parallel
(E) her dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery and emancipation of women - INCORRECT, BOTH TO X and TO Y are not parallel

Simple. The idiom is to both x and Y as in C.
Can'tbe 600 to 700 level with one critical decision point.

In keeping with her commitment to her Christian faith, Sojourner Truth demonstrated as a public speaker a dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery as well as for women to be emancipated.

(A) a dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery as well as for women to be emancipated
(B) her being dedicated to both the nonviolent abolishing of slavery as well as for women’s emancipation
(C) a dedication to both the nonviolent abolition of slavery and the emancipation of women
(D) that she was dedicated both to abolishing slavery nonviolently and to emancipate women
(E) her dedication both to the nonviolent abolition of slavery and emancipation of women

A and B are obviously wrong.

D is wrong because "both to abolishing...and to emancipation" is wrong. Abolishing is gerund while emancipation is a noun. Parallelism is broken.

E is wrong, because what immediately follows "both" must also immediately follow "and". In E "to" immediately follows "both". But there is no "to" after "and"
