Hi experts,
I have a small doubt with the following question :

During a conversation with Stacy???s parents, the teacher mentioned that Stacy
had shown considerable ability in literature and to learn foreign languages

(A) considerable ability in literature and to learn
(B) considerable ability in literature and that she could do it well in
(C) ability that was considerable in literature as well as in learning
(D) ability considerably in literature and in
(E) considerable ability in literature and in

I agree that option E is the best of all.
My question is that do we consider the ability in literature and that in foreign language the same thing? Should it be "considerable abilities in literature and in foreign language?"

Thanks

Singular "ability" is alright. The skills required may be different, but she is considerably able in both.

Hi Experts , question 5. Is this option correct:
the artist???s music was more innovative than that of most of his
contemporaries.

Here THAT makes copy of the artist's music. So the sentence will read as artist's music was more innovative than artist's music of most of his contemporaries.
?
Thanks

"That" makes a copy of "music", not "artist's music". However from parallelsim aspect, following optons would be better:

The artist’s music was more innovative than most of his contemporaries' music.
OR
The music of the artist was more innovative than that of most of his contemporaries.
