The term "genre novel" is loosely defined, promoted by those critics who do not consider novels that rely on romantic relationships, crime drama, or use fantastic elements to be mainstream literature and thus exclude these from consideration when awarding literary prizes.

a) use fantastic elements to be mainstream literature and thus exclude these
b) fantastic elements mainstream literature and thus exclude these
c) use fantastic elements as mainstream literature and thus exclude these works
d) fantastic elements as if they were mainstream literature and thus exclude these
e) fantastic elements mainstream literature and thus exclude these works


I am a little confused as it seems that there should be an "as" after mainstream in the fifth option?

Please, use a proper title for the post according to the rules of the board and underline the portion of the stimulus.

You do need another clear element after the two: drama and romantic: fantastic elements: So the answers could be B, D and E.

But only E put rightly works before the last part of the sentence and is clear.

E is the answer

a) use fantastic elements to be mainstream literature and thus exclude these
Incorrect: Defeats Parallelism
b) fantastic elements mainstream literature and thus exclude these
Incorrect. 'these' is ambiguous
c) use fantastic elements as mainstream literature and thus exclude these works
Incorrect: Defeats Parallelism
d) fantastic elements as if they were mainstream literature and thus exclude these
Incorrect. 'these' is ambiguous
e) fantastic elements mainstream literature and thus exclude these works
Correct. Corrects both parallelism as well as specifies these works

I find it absolutely wrong for the sentence to have a list of things mentioned and not have the word 'as' or 'to be' before mainstream literature, because essentially that word describes the relationship between the list and mainstream litreature . Kindly explain.

Use of "consider A B" idiom

a) use fantastic elements to be mainstream literature and thus exclude these
b) fantastic elements mainstream literature and thus exclude these --> "these" without the "works" is wrong usage
c) use fantastic elements as mainstream literature and thus exclude these works
d) fantastic elements as if they were mainstream literature and thus exclude these
e) fantastic elements mainstream literature and thus exclude these works --> correct
