IMO C.

(A) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography and in a style that varies from woman to woman and house to house
not sure what blue portion referring to. is it "their geometrical symmetries" or "murals". both cases are plural and doesn't fit.

(B) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and their style is varying among women and houses
use of present continuous tense is incorrect IMO.

(C) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and they are in styles that vary from woman to woman and house to house
Keep.

(D) with murals brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography, and their style varies among women and houses
modifying clause beginnign "with" is not correct. seems modifying Ndebele women.

(E) with murals that are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography, and their styles vary among women and houses
Same as D.

I am picking ^ A ^

>>"with" in D and E does not seem right to me.

>>in B and C "are" is used and that is wrong.

A seems right for ||lism

A) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography and (embellished) in a style that varies from woman to woman and house to house

A confusing question

Hi hellom3p,

In this question, it is important to understand the structure of the sentence first. In the original sentence, it says that M.Clarke has travelled to T. to photograph the art of N. women. And after this sentence, we have the adjective clause, modifying the "art".

In A, first we state the art, then its murals and lastly their(murals') geometrical symmetries. If you can figure this out, you will see that there are 3 adjective clauses following eachother.

However, in B, two other sentences are created after defining the art. Look :

Margaret Courtney-Clarke has traveled to remote dwellings in the Transvaal to photograph the art of Ndebele women, whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and their style is varying among women and houses

It is like sentences following eachother. But, we are not looking for that. It is the same problem with C.

I hope I am clear buddy
