Hi Egmat,

Can you please explain why is option C incorrect. I don't think that the usage of as with a prepositional phrase to show comparison is incorrect. Is it because it changes the meaning of the sentence? It says RJ made music that arose from a tradition however, the parent sentence says the music was the result of an oral tradition... Please clarify



Hi Nishat,

Thanks for posting your doubt here. :-)

The change of meaning that you are talking about in Choice C does not exist. The original sentence as well as Choice C says that the music from an oral tradition beginning. I guess you got confused because the structure of the two choices are different.

In Choice C As + prepositional phrase does not work in the context of this sentence because the main clause contains an action that needs to be compared with another action after as. This action is missing in Choice C.

Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
Shraddha

I still didn't understand. Could you please elaborate??
