a) been increasingly neglected
keeps the meaning intact. No errors. CORRECT

b) neglected, increasingly
The meaning is awkward. The bible has done the work of neglecting which is practically impossible. INCORRECT

c) been neglected, increasingly
The part after the comma neither seems like a phrase nor a noun+noun modifier. It looks a full sentence and hence is run-on. INCORRECT

d) been increasingly treated with neglect
too wordy. Option A is pretty concise. INCORRECT

e) increasingly been treated with neglect
Same as D

Hey SonGoku

Pikolo is always there to help Goku ;) :lol:

To answer your question, D is just too wordy. Think of it this way - is the wordiness really required to give some extra valuable info ? Without the extra wordiness does the meaning change?

The answer to both questions is NO. The meaning for both Option A and D is the same.

Hence you can safely eliminate D.

b) neglected, increasingly --> wrong: Bible neglected what?

c) been neglected, increasingly -->wrong: why comma(,)

d) been increasingly treated with neglect --> wordy

e) increasingly been treated with neglect --> wordy
