C,D,E - Meaning issue. The notes revealead a woman!
B - also guided is awkward + parallelism issue.

So,

The sentence consists of the following issues -

Correct Idiomatic Usage of - Both X and Y { Options B, D and E eliminated}
Correct Use of That


(B) that this most timid and shy of women was an intellectual giant also guided both in emotional as well as
(D) this most timid and shy of women was an intellectual giant and that she was guided in both emotional as well as
(E) this most timid and shy of women to have been an intellectual giant and that she guided herself in both emotional as well as

3:2 Split over...


(A) that this most timid and shy of women was an intellectual giant guided in both emotional and
(C) this most timid and shy of women was an intellectual giant and that she was guided in both emotional and - Incorrect.

Hence (A) is the best answer...

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This sentence clearly has to do with tense agreement. You can reduce the sentence down to the simple form: A woman was guided in x and y. Choice E uses different tenses. The use of ‘by’ in the part of the sentence which cannot be changed means that the verb before ‘by’ will be in the passive. E is active and changes the meaning by saying that she guided herself, rather then being guided by a sense of courage. ‘And’ in options A and C is more economical than ‘as well as’ in the other options. The use of ‘also’ in B is unnecessary. C is wordy. You could eliminate ‘and that she was’. D repeats this error. A is correct.
