You left with a wrong answer. "Flatly" is an adverb when can not be used here. We need a predicate adjective.
(B) is correct

I agree that flatly is used wrongly here. packed flatly is different from flatly packed. Between B & D, B is good.

Agree on B.

The reason E doesn't work is that the no-elaborate-closets is actually a consequence of, not a precondition for, the flatly packed clothes. E says that, because no elaborate closets were necessary, the Japanese packed clothes flatly.

I chose B because I assumed "flatly" is not a correct word. "flat" is used as an adjective as well as adverb. Can someone correct me please?

Hi guys,

IMO E

(A) flatly, and so it was not necessary to have elaborate closet facilities have elaborate?

(B) flat, and so elaborate closet facilities were unnecessary just an adverb can modify an adjective, flatly needed

(C) flatly, and so there was no necessity for elaborate closet facilities for me wordy, and I'm not sure if so is well used here

(D) flat, there being no necessity for elaborate closet facilities just an adverb can modify an adjective, flatly needed

(E) flatly, as no elaborate closet facilities were necessary Hold

OA?

Cheers
