B conveys the meaning that the critics mocked mister X once, which means one time only.I.E the once in B means Mister X was mocked one time and not 2 times, 3 times, one million of times.

D instead means Mister X was mocked once in the sense of time frame: one month ago, one year ago, and so forth. Once upon a time.

Guys read very carefully: the displaced of a word makes a world of difference.

Hope now is clear.

Regards

I'm not able to eliminate C) for the second question. Can you explain why "also" is needed ? Thanks in advance

The revolutionary filmmaker introduced close-ups and special effects, also she set vehicles on fire, used cables in special effects sequences, and ran film backwards.
(A) effects, also she set
(B) effects, and also she sets
(C) effects, she set
(D) effects; she also set
(E) effects by setting

The answer is D. Al the other answers but D are run-on sentences. You must have here a semicolon for two independent clauses.

As for also: you need it to clarify the meaning: She set this; she also did that.

Hope this helps now.

Regards

well waiting for the OAs
my try below
BDCDDEBDDC

As for 3) Studying the art for several years, practicing difficult notes every day, and frequent performances has enabled the young pianist to secure a contract with the country's biggest music company.

(A) and frequent performances has enabled the young pianist
(B) as well as frequent performances have enabled the young pianist
(C) and performing frequently, the young pianist has been enabled
(D) and frequent performances have enabled the young pianist
(E) and performing frequently enabled the young pianist

I think after a list of actions"studying...practicing...performing''there should be a subject following these actions immediately,and that is why i chosed C instead of E

as for 8) Greg, feeling bored and dejected, and he was able to finish the task in time nonetheless.

(A) Greg, feeling bored and dejected, and he
(B) Greg felt bored and dejected,
(C) Although Greg felt bored and dejected, he
(D) Greg, feeling bored and dejected,
(E) Because he was feeling bored and dejected, Greg

I saw that a lot of you chosed C but you guys neglected that there is a Nonetheless at the end of the sentence and that would be redundant to choose an answer which has an ALTHOUGH in it.I go with D,who is with me?

9) The villagers leave their homes at the stroke of dawn to hike six miles up steep, dangerous trails to the forests, to be returning by late afternoon with huge loads of firewood on their backs.

(A) forests, to be returning by late afternoon
(B) forests, and it is late afternoon by the time that they return
(C) forests; they return late by afternoon
(D) forests and return by late afternoon
(E) forests, to have returned by late afternoon

I believe option D misses a comma after forests.


well there should not be a comma between FORESTS and AND,i remember that RON once said that if you use comma+and to connect two clause,then the two things are not related.
here is an example "The traffic is heavy today,and i was late for work."(that means those two things are not related,i may be late for other reasons.''
if you have to use the comma+and to connect two related things,you need to add something like "The traffic is heavy today,and THUS i was late for work''That will make sense.
in this question, ''the villagers leave...and return....'' i think there is no need to seperate these two things.
