As I managed to understand, this question tests idiom 'turned from X to Y', though I thought that it must be in form 'turned away from realism to writing'. Am I right?

A is wordy and awkward
D is concise and the only other sentence that uses the modifier correctly

Hence D

Turning away..... , Selma... (thats what the question is testing.. the use of the modifier)

D is grammatically correct as well as the most well constructed option.

In option D we have the redundant pair "AND ALSO"
I think C is the best option.
Kindly explain and update the OA

Hi,
It is a GMAT Prep ques and correct answer is D. Yes 'and also' is considered redundant but here it is in the best option. so u can learn the lesson that don't eliminate answer choice just because of 'and also' .

C is wrong because of 'in addition to' , It seems that there was another person also apart from her to win the prize.

Hi,
You use 'that' for non living thing . Here it should be 'who'. Moreover the main clause is about that she won the prize , winning prize is not the result.

Hello yogeshmisthi,

I will be glad to help you out with this one. :-)

The comma + verb-ing modifier becoming... in Choice E seems to present the result of the preceding action wrote romantic stories. The choice seems to suggest that because SL wrote romantic stories, she won the mentioned accolades. This meaning does not make sense.

And yes, we cannot use the noun modifier that to refer to human beings. So usage of that is also incorrect in Choice E.


Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
Shraddha
