I don’t think this was reproduced correctly. High praises is wrong. It should be high praise. It is reproduced correctly as high praise on other sites.

A is correct if you reproduce it accurately, if not the C probably is better even though it’s clunky.

We can stop reading as soon as we get to "and only after that..." "That" is a relative pronoun that is trying to refer to some thing. But there is nothing, no written noun, to which the word "that" refers, and it cannot refer to the entire preceding clause. All pronouns must refer to a written noun that appears in the sentence.


Just to complete my understanding here, since all pronouns must refer to a written noun, would the default way to refer to a verb/clause be something like "...moving it into the first rank of American newspapers..."? I know that there are multiple correct ways to express the meaning, but just wanted to see if my understanding is correct. Thanks!
