E) Consisting of over ten thousand lines of blank verse, Milton’s Paradise Lost was an epic poem that was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books, dealing


B is the correct answer

A has parallelism issue and the sentence does not make sense
" and " connecting blank verse and Milton's paradise lost is wrong it seems to suggest that there some other book apart from Milton's book
B We do not have subject for the sentence after comma there should have been a connector
C Correct
D As an is incorrect
E dealing is incorrect the should be and to maintain parallelism and convey two ideas.

A) It consists of over ten thousand lines of blank verse and Milton’s Paradise Lost, an epic poem, was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books and deals

B) Milton’s Paradise Lost was an epic poem that consists of over ten thousand lines of blank verse, was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books that dealt

D) As an epic poem consists of over ten thousand lines of blank verse, Milton’s Paradise Lost was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books and dealt

E) Consisting of over ten thousand lines of blank verse, Milton’s Paradise Lost was an epic poem that was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books, dealing


(B, E) If we think about the meaning, we can see in B, E such words: "Milton’s Paradise Lost was an epic poem". What does it mean? It was and now it does not exist or what? Out.
(The same problem with "dealt". It dealt then and does not deal now? So D is out too).
(A) "It consists of over ten thousand lines of blank verse and Milton’s Paradise Lost". Wha tis the strange connection here? It is even not the sentence.
(D) What does "as" do here. We have some comparison? No. Plus "dealt". Out.

C. An epic poem consisting of over ten thousand lines of blank verse, Milton’s Paradise Lost was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books and deals - Good.

Why option B is wrong? "deals" as mentioned in option C is right or we need "dealt".
Please explain. Thanks.

Option B is

There are a couple of ways you can quickly get rid of this option:

1. The use of the past tense was with an epic poem: we should use the present tense here, as the information being introduced is not restricted to the past (that is, its status as an epic poem is not expected to have changed).

2. The lack of a conjunction for the verbs: read the option as A was a B that consists of C, was first published in D. There are 3 verbs here (was, consists, and was published). Now, whether the sentence is going with (a) was and was first published or (b) consists and was first published, we need an and to join the verbs in that list.

I think E is wrong for below reason,


E) Consisting of over ten thousand lines of blank verse, Milton’s Paradise Lost was an epic poem that was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books, dealing

Here clause starting from that incorrectly modifies epic poem. Poem was not first published in 1667 but the Milton's Paradise. There might be many epic poems, which were published before and after 1667,so using that just after epic poem changes the intended meaning.

A) It consists of over ten thousand lines of blank verse and Milton’s Paradise Lost, an epic poem, was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books and deals . ---- "an epic poem" is placed incorrectly here.

B) Milton’s Paradise Lost was an epic poem that consists of over ten thousand lines of blank verse, was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books that dealt. ---- ", was first published" is incorrect. ", and was" is required here.

C) An epic poem consisting of over ten thousand lines of blank verse, Milton’s Paradise Lost was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books and deals --- This is correct.

D) As an epic poem consists of over ten thousand lines of blank verse, Milton’s Paradise Lost was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books and dealt -- two independent clauses are joined by just comma.

E) Consisting of over ten thousand lines of blank verse, Milton’s Paradise Lost was an epic poem that was first published in 1667 in a volume of ten books, dealing -- ",dealing" should not be used as verb-ing here.
