It's a easy one

(A) Diderot’s factual Encyclopedia and his friend Voltaire’s fictional Candide were the cause of such a sensational scandal, and
,and is not connecting the two phrases correctly

(B) Diderot and his friend Voltaire’s caused such a sensational scandal with their factual Encyclopedia and fictional Candide, respectively, that
Diderot cannot be published

(C) Diderot’s factual Encyclopedia and his friend Voltaire’s fictional Candide were the cause of a scandal so sensational that
Correct one, seems all good

(D) the scandal caused by Diderot’s factual Encyclopedia and his friend Voltaire’s fictional Candide was so sensational
scandal was not published

(E) a factual Encyclopedia by Diderot and the fictional Candide, by his friend Voltaire, caused a sensational scandal, which
does not connect with the rest of the sentence correctly

(A) Diderot’s factual Encyclopedia and his friend Voltaire’s fictional Candide were the cause of such a sensational scandal, and ----- the later part o the underlined portion seems to be off; and distorts the meaning

(B) Diderot and his friend Voltaire’s caused such a sensational scandal with their factual Encyclopedia and fictional Candide, respectively, that ---- modifier error


(C) Diderot’s factual Encyclopedia and his friend Voltaire’s fictional Candide were the cause of a scandal so sensational that
---- gives the reason why the two dudes embarked on that journey.

(D) the scandal caused by Diderot’s factual Encyclopedia and his friend Voltaire’s fictional Candide was so sensational-- ---- modifier error

(E) a factual Encyclopedia by Diderot and the fictional Candide, by his friend Voltaire, caused a sensational scandal, which
--- which in the end of the underlined portion causes the problem in this sentence.

E vs C? Because of the placement of "factual"?

Hi Bunuel
How come the OA is E?
E). a factual Encyclopedia by Diderot and the fictional Candide, by his friend Voltaire, caused a sensational scandal, which

Here, which refers to the scandal and the following statement " which both men prudently chose to embark on extended vacations in nearby Austria" makes zero sense!

Either the word "led" is missing between 'which' and 'both' or this is possibly wrong.

Please clarify.
Thanks

I see "C" on clicking "OA". Maybe the OA was updated?

Shouldn't the asnwer be E? In C "his" has no referant. So doesn't "both men" make any sense. Plus "his friend Voltaire’s" isn't a hot mess?

(E) a factual Encyclopedia by Diderot and the fictional Candide, by his friend Voltaire, caused a sensational scandal, which.

although I choose C, in E we do not see problem!!!! "maybe that part incorrect"
