Sartre, an inadvertent guru, had an opinion on everything, painfully considered, elaborately reasoned, often changed.
a) often changed
b) and it was usually changed
c) that was often changed
d)changing often
e) one he often changed


For this, the answer is A. But I wonder if "and" is needed.

A and E both seem right. But I would choose A since "painfully considered, elaborately reasoned..." are both describing the opinion and therefore A fits in perfectly.

i agree with mr.sarn.

And is required.

However in absence of "And", option "A" is best possible choice, since it has adjectives in series.

This is sort of a "poetic license" kind of idiom, or a slight breaking of the "rules" of English to make a sentence sound pleasing to the ear. If there were a choice including "and" it would be better, but this works. So tricky, I know.

A sounds the best and it also follows the adverb-verb pattern; "and" isn't necessary.
