Intended meaning from Choice A: Per choice A, the publisher will publish these works with a
purpose of having them sold online. Note clearly that this choice does not indicate who will sell the
works. It only indicates that online selling is the purpose of taking on this project.
Grammatically Correct but Incorrect choice (E) – This choice communicates the sense that
publisher will publish these works and will sell them online. Notice how that the purpose of
embarking on that project is no longer communicated. By using “and”, the sentence simply
presents the two as independent facts rather than as purpose relationship. Furthermore, this
choice adds the information that publisher will be selling the books online. This information is not
presented in the original sentence.
