classical tradition, as does her passionate interest in history, particularly Roman history.

(A) as does
(B) so do
(C) as do
(D) so is the case with
(E) similarly, does


I would vote for A correct as it is.

as does subsitute for her passionate interest in history places her within the French classical tradition.

B is wrong. So do is not the correct idiom
C is wrong. passionate interest is singular, do does not agree
D and E are wordy.

A .... because "passionate interest" is singular

"as" fits best for comparison of two things here.

Hi, guys. it should be "D". Choices A,B,C and E make no sense logically since they all indicate that her passionate in roman history place her in the French tradition.

(A) as does

(C) as do

(E) similarly, does


(A) as doeshere the subject her passionate interest is singularhence we require does. at the same ime comparision is made between The aristrocatic values and her passionate interest. and we know as is to compate clause. so this answer choice seems correct
(B) so do wrong comparision and subject verb error. so is not used to compare
(C) as do comparision is correct but subject verb erroe
(D) so is the case with wrong for the reason stated above

hence A is correct
(E) similarly, does[/quote]

Why is E wrong? Because it is a comma splice, a fatal grammar error

It does not. B,C are completely wrong. D, E are wordy. A is perfect. 'As' is apt for comparisons
