Good question. It was rather easy to eliminate three options, but it was hard to choose the one between remaining two

A tale of Agatha Christie, the elusive pronoun, the misplaced modifier, and the missing "Other". Hope I've solved this mystery.

Week 2 winners posted

Some reflections from week 2:

  • Timer results were overwhelmingly fewer than last week (although the number of replies went up almost for every day! Are we using the timer while answering the questions?
  • No timer data from Day 10 questions align with the correct answer :P
  • The Level of Difficulty has been high so far. Should we dial down a little bit next week?

Hi Expert,

Why choice C is incorrect while choice E is correct?

The comparison is intended between the audience of books of Agatha Christie and those of any fiction author at the same point of time. Option C wrongly compares past audience of books of Agatha Christie and present audience of those of any fiction author.

In option E, the verb "have had" has been omitted by virtue of parallelism.

The books of Agatha Christie, a popular writer of crime novels, have had a greater audience than any fiction author in history.


(A) than any fiction author in history
-- audience is compared with author.

(B) historically than any other fiction author
-- audience is compared with author.

(C) than have those of any fiction author in history
-- we need to have singular here - not have

(D) in history as any other fiction author has had
-- changes the meaning.

(E) than those of any other fiction author in history
-- correct answer.

The books of Agatha Christie, a popular writer of crime novels, have had a greater audience than any fiction author in history.

Quote:
(A) than any fiction author in history

above says - The books of AC have had a greater audience than any fiction author in history. Audiences are getting compared with fiction author

Quote:
(B) historically than any other fiction author
. Placement of historically is wrong. Audience vs fiction author comparison.

Quote:
(C)than have those of any fiction author in history.
Past vs present comparison.

Quote:
(D) in history as any other fiction author has had.
Instead of comparison, similarity is used.

Quote:
(E) than those of any other fiction author in history
correct

The books of AC have had a greater audience than "have had" books of any other fiction author in history.
