Can anyone Explain this?

PS : This should be posted in SC forum.

Anyway, the correct idiom is SO... blah blah... that, which leaves us with 2 options ( C and E) out of 5. C is wrong because in the sentence its using 2 actions ( dogged were Frances Perkins’ investigations of the garment industry & her lobbying for wage and hour reform was persistent ), Hence AND is required between these 2 actions.

This is supposed to be an adaptation of an excerpt from the New York Times.
http://www.nytimes.com/1993/11/14/books ... -club.html

Quote:
So dogged were her investigations of the garment industry, and so persistent her lobbying for wage and hour reform, that she was first recruited by Gov. Al Smith, and later by Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt, to work within New York State government, rather than against it.

Choice E that corresponds to the version in the magazine misses an important ‘and’ before ‘so’; otherwise E may be the best choice. All the same, a disappointing question because of the poor transcription form the creator of this question, incidentally, GMATPREP

This is a really, really old problem (over 10 years old, if it's in "set 27"). The current GMAT won't test such oddly constructed sentences, so it's best to forget about this one altogether.
