"Thought of" in D made me to eliminate this choice as I thought it changed intended meaning of sentence. So I choose B

Can someone please explain difference between B and D

I think D is the most concise and the word Europe is placed closer to the second part of the sentence which makes it clearer that the continent refers to Europe not US like in choice A and C

Hi,

The devil is in details. Don't you see "still home"? The intended meaning is: Europe became his home long after his family... Now think how can it "became home still after".

Hi push12345,

The difference between B and D is that while B does not have the noun(George Steiner in this case) DOING both the actions,D has the noun DOING both and hence maintains parallelism.

Will someone pls post OE out here and also suggest,

1. Why B is wrong out here ?
2. Doesn't D change the meaning out here. Original sentence didn't mention anywhere that he thought about his home.

And triggers parallelism here...

George Steiner thought------- and he returned.....

B doesn't maintain any parallelism.
