The original Ancient Greek gymnasiums were incredibly advanced and had more in common with our modern universities than with our local fitness clubs, holding lectures and discussions on philosophy, literature, and music, and offering free public libraries, long before teachers such as Plato and Aristotle had begun their work.

A. had more in common with our modern universities than with our local fitness clubs, holding lectures and discussions on philosophy, literature, and music, and offering free public libraries, long before teachers such as Plato and Aristotle had begun their work
what is correctly used - modifiers : holding and offering as verb-ing modifiers ; HAD more in common : past perfect tense to show an earlier event ; AND : to list items
whats wrong - no requirement of had begun- it should be simple past 'began'


B. held lectures, discussed philosophy, literature, and music, and offered free public libraries long before teachers such as Plato and Aristotle began their work, having more in common with our modern universities than our local fitness clubs
placement of modifier "having"

C. had more in common with our modern universities than with our local fitness clubs, holding lectures and discussions on philosophy, literature, and music, and offering libraries free to the public, long before teachers such as Plato and Aristotle began their work
CORRECT..changes had begun to began

D. have more in common with our modern universities than our local fitness clubs; they held lectures and discussions on philosophy, literature, and music, and offered libraries free to the public, long before teachers such as Plato and Aristotle had begun their work
use of present tense "have", had begun

E. were more like our modern universities than our local fitness clubs, holding lectures and discussions on philosophy, literature, and music as well as offering free public libraries, long before teachers such as Plato or Aristotle had begun their work
more like....than LIKE our...LIKE missing - parallelism issue... use of as well as .. use of past perfect had begun

C
