Hi,

Although I ended up with E, please let me know if the logic I have used is correct:

E. Published anonymously and first attributed to George Eliot, Far from the Maddening Crowd won Hardy immediate success; it combines an architecturally perfect plot with the philosophical overtones

The Usage of "overtones" instead of "overtone" is needed since the "were" is used instead of "was" in the last part of the sentence

Dear Sarai,

Is the following sentence correct?

"Published anonymously and first attributed to George Eliot, Far from the Maddening Crowd won Hardy immediate success, combining both an architecturally perfect plot and the philosophical overtone that were to set the theme for his later works"

In above sentence I've corrected idiom error (both A with B) and now that refers to "an architecturally perfect plot and the philosophical overtone" (a plural subject)..

No, combine with is the correct idiom which is missing in your sentence.

Also, I believe That refers to the Overtones and not to both an architecturally perfect plot and the philosophical overtone.

Published anonymously and first attributed to George Eliot, Far from the Maddening Crowd won Hardy immediate success, combining both an architecturally perfect plot with the philosophical overtone that were to set the theme for his later works.


meaning ->
Far from the Maddening Crowd was Published anonymously and first attributed to George Eliot. It won Hardy immediate success. It combines both an architecturally perfect plot with the philosophical overtone that were to set the theme for his later works.

Verb+ ing is wrong here. Verb -ing provide consequences or further description of previous sentence. "both an architecturally perfect plot with the philosophical overtone that were to set the theme for his later works." "won Hardy immediate success" are not related to each other.


A. Published anonymously and first attributed to George Eliot, Far from the Maddening Crowd won Hardy immediate success, combining both an architecturally perfect plot with the philosophical overtone ->? wrong

B. First attributed to George Eliot, Hardy won immediate success upon publishing Far from the Maddening Crowd; in it are combined an architecturally perfect plot with the philosophical overtones +> "in it" seems wrong.

C. Far from the Maddening Crowd was published anonymously and first attributed to George Eliot, and also won Hardy immediate success; it combines an architecturally perfect plot with the philosophical overtone => wrong parallelism

either X,Y, and Z
or X and Y



D. Published anonymously and first attributed to George Eliot, Far from the Maddening Crowd, combing an architecturally perfect plot with the philosophical overtones, won mediate success - wrong

E. Published anonymously and first attributed to George Eliot, Far from the Maddening Crowd won Hardy immediate success; it combines an architecturally perfect plot with the philosophical overtones

What? There are a few words in the solutions in comments that are not present in the original sentence. What do I make of this?
