I got this question and chose C because option E had so again. I wasn't aware of the idiom So X, So Y ...that

My question here is what the question is testing? I don't think it is just the So....that idiom....

Any suggestions/?

',and' used to join DC(so dogged...industry) with IC (her lobbying...persistent) : Incorrect


B. and lobbying for wage and hour reform was persistent, so that

',and' used to join DC(so dogged...industry) with IC (her lobbying...persistent) : Incorrect[/color]

D. lobbying for wage and hour reform was so persistent,

wrong modification

E. so persistent her lobbying for wage and hour reform, that

So X , So Y , That.... Correct
