Please do not add an already existing question. Perform a search by the name of the question and if you do not find, then please go ahead and post the question.If the OA is not added, probably you can post over there about the OA and it will be added.

Regards,
Ankur

The themes that Rita Dove explores in her poetry are..........

Themes will take are , Only options (D) and (E) left, however (D) is incorrect

E. are universal, they encompass much of the human condition, also occasionally are dealing

they = No clear antecedent

also occasionally are dealing = Wordy / Awkward and Redundant..

Hence IMHO (D)

The themes that Rita Dove explores in her poetry is universal, encompassing much of the human condition while occasionally deals with racial issues.
A. is universal, encompassing much of the human condition while occasionally deals
B. is universal, encompassing much of the human condition, also occasionally it deals
C. are universal, they encompass much of the human condition and occasionally deals
D. are universal, encompassing much of the human condition while occasionally dealing
E. are universal, they encompass much of the human condition, also occasionally are dealing

As D is the correct answer, does the word "encompassing" modify "themes" or "explores"?

Straight D
POE: 'themes' is plural and requires plural verb 'are' so A & B are out
Two independent clauses cannot be joined by a comma hence C & E are out

ENCOMPASSING is modifying the idea present in previous sentence
IDEA is "The themes are universal"
