in choice D, why "he" is needed. we need only "hopes". in many OA in og books, the subject is not repeated before the second verb.

some questions test the split between a choice with subject is retained as in choice d and a choice without subject in the second clause.

pls, explain


Hello thangvietnam!

Thank you for your question. Let's look at option D with the non-underlined portion added in:

The 19-year-old pianist and composer performed his most recent work all over Europe, Asia, and North America last year, winning prestigious awards in both London and Tokyo for his achievement at such a young age, and he hopes to continue composing now that he has returned to Chicago.

We need the word "he" because the phrase (highlighted in blue) starts with a comma + and. That indicates that whatever comes after the coordinating conjunction "and" MUST be an independent clause! We need to repeat the subject to make this an independent clause, but instead of repeating the entire subject (The 19-year-old pianist and composer), we can just substitute the pronoun "he."

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any follow-up questions!

A. winning prestigious awards in both London as well as Tokyo for his achievement at so young an age, and he is hoping
B. winning prestigious awards both in London and Tokyo for his achievement at such a young age, and hoping
C. having won prestigious awards both in London and Tokyo for his achievement at so young an age, hoping
D. winning prestigious awards in both London and Tokyo for his achievement at such a young age, and he hopes
E. having won prestigious awards both in London as well as Tokyo for his achievement at so young an age, and he hopes



Question is very easy if you know an idiom
BOTH X and Y
Other options use both in X and Y,
D is promising, and has a proper tense usage unlike C
