A. that of William Strickland were characteristic of the Greek Revival movement, encompassing classical public buildings as much as

Name of architects must be parallel nouns as given in the non-underlined part. But in this choice "that" breaks the parallelism. Also, "were" is plural verb wrongly attached with singular subject/noun phrase "The work of American architects"

B. that of William Strickland was characteristic of the Greek Revival movement, and it encompassed both classical public buildings as well as

Name of architects must be parallel nouns as given in the non-underlined part. But in this choice "that" breaks the parallelism.

Both X and Y is correct expression. Both X as well as Y is wrong.


C William Strickland was characteristic of the Greek Revival movement, encompassing both classical public buildings and

Correct : Parallel list, proper SV agreement, and correct expression Both X and Y.

Also, present participle "encompassing" correctly modifying the verb and the subject of the main clause, showing that how "The work of American architects was characteristic of the Greek Revival movement".

D. William Strickland was characteristic of the Greek Revival movement, as it encompassed classical public buildings as much as

Change in the meaning with the use of "it". Though "it" is not ambiguous pronoun here, but the meaning is wrong.

E. William Strickland were characteristic of the Greek Revival movement, encompassing both classical public buildings in addition to

We need "was in place of "were". Both X in addition to Y is wrong. Both X and Y is correct.
