A. Turning away from literary realism to write romantic stories about the peasant life
and landscape of northern Sweden, in 1909 Selma Lagerlöf was the novelist who
became the first woman
and was also the first Swedish writer to win

-> Awkwardly, the phrasing makes the sentence sound like this: "the writer was the novelist who became the first woman (in history?)" as in "someone who transformed into a woman"... "and who also happened to win a Nobel prize". The separation between "first woman and first Swedish writer" becomes too marked with the redundant use of "was" for two times, in this particular context. We should immediately understand that we need to find an alternative in which we can find "the first woman and writer to win a Nobel prize" clearly enucleated and comprehensible. Therefore, A is incorrect.

B. She turned away from literary realism and wrote romantic stories about the
peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, and novelist Selma Lagerlöf in
1909 became the first woman as well as the first Swedish writer that won

-> This phrasing makes the sentence look like it's talking about two distinct individuals ("One person wrote this, and another novelist did that"). Therefore, B is incorrect.

C. Selma Lagerlöf was a novelist who turned away from literary realism to write
romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, and in
1909 she became the first woman in addition to the first Swedish writer winning

-> While kind of less awkward than choice A, choice C has the same exact problem: it doesn't solve the inherent ambiguity and won't clearly express the fact that the writer was the first woman (to win the Nobel Prize for Literature) and the first Swedish writer (to win the Nobel Prize for Literature). This could be read, again, as something like "she became the first woman; the first Swedish writer became the first woman as well". Furthermore, "winning" is unidiomatic in this particular context. Therefore, while possibly inviting, C is incorrect.


D. A novelist who turned away from literary realism to write romantic stories about
the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, Selma Lagerlöf became in
1909 the first woman and also the first Swedish writer to win


-> See here: both first woman and first Swedish writer are logically connected to "to win the Nobel prize". Try to rephrase it, if in doubt. You can only make it a "she became the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in literature" and "she also became the first Swedish writer to win the Nobel Prize in literature". D is correct.

E. As a novelist, Selma Lagerlöf turned away from literary realism and wrote
romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, in 1909
becoming the first woman and also the first Swedish writer that won

->Change in meaning! Do you remember the original phrase? It just says that "Selma Lagerlöf turned away", not that "being a novelist/ her status as a novelist" contributed. Strictly speaking, there is no established logical correlation between her status as a novelist and her desire to go from realism to romantic stories in the original phrase. Alternatively, I'd say this would be the kind of passage you'd find if the excerpt was talking about the writer's personal life up to the end of previous period and then started to analyze her history/characteristics as a novelist ("As a person, she was a good woman" -> "as a novelist, she turned away from literaly realism" in the current one. Choice D, nevertheless, is definitely more faithful to the original meaning and less verbose. We need to rule out E as well. Therefore, E is incorrect.

Meaning: SL turned away from literary realism to write... In 1909, she became 1st Swedish writer and 1st woman to win Nobel Prize for Literature.
Remember, the first elimination happens on the bases of Grammar.

Turning away from literary realism to write romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, in 1909 Selma Lagerlöf was the novelist who became the first woman and was also the first Swedish writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.

A. Turning away from literary realism to write romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, in 1909 Selma Lagerlöf was the novelist who became the first woman and was also the first Swedish writer to win
Error: AND above is a Parallel Marker but who became the first woman and was also the first Swedish writer are not Parallel.

B. She turned away from literary realism and wrote romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, and novelist Selma Lagerlöf in 1909 became the first woman as well as the first Swedish writer that won
Error: 1. Opening Modifier must modify SL but here we are talking about 2 different individuals.
2. that won should be to win.

C. Selma Lagerlöf was a novelist who turned away from literary realism to write romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, and in 1909 she became the first woman in addition to the first Swedish writer winning

Structure: winning the Nobel Prize for Literature is modifier modifying 2 Nouns preceding it joined by a conjunction in addition to.
Error: With this structure, we get a meaning that SL became the 1st Swedish writer and the 1st Woman in 1909 and what happened to the 1st woman on earth was that she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

D. A novelist who turned away from literary realism to write romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, Selma Lagerlöf became in 1909 the first woman and also the first Swedish writer to win
Error: NONE

E. As a novelist, Selma Lagerlöf turned away from literary realism and wrote romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, in 1909 becoming the first woman and also the first Swedish writer that won
Error: that won should be to win.


P.S. I don't think that , in 1909 in (A) and (E) is wrong because this is a participle clause and participle clauses do not provide the subject in a sentence. I may be wrong about it though.

How can option D be the correct choice. Isn't And Also redundant?

Posted from my mobile device


Yes, your observation is valid - "and also" is generally considered redundant in GMAT.

Although some grammarians suggest that if special emphasis is required on one of the items, then "and also" may be used, for GMAT the "and also" usage is not expected to be seen in a correct answer.

B. She turned away from literary realism and wrote romantic stories about the peasant life and lansscpare of northern Swedan, and novelist Selma Lagerlof in 1909 became the first woman as well as first Swedish writer that won

E. As a novelist, Selma Lagerlof turned away from literary realism and wrote romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, in 1909 becoming the first woman and also the first Swedish writer that won



In answer choice E most of people said that place of "in 1909" is wrong .... Is it because "in 1909" modifies "Selma Lagerlof turned away from literary realism and wrote romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden" or because "becoming the first woman and also the first Swedish writer that won" is ing form which modifies main clause and "in 1909" should come after "becoming the first woman"

The second reason you mentioned is more valid here than the first.
Another major problem with E is the use of the relative pronoun "that" to refer to a person.

Hi expert,
I am confuse with the correct option
"A novelist who turned away from literary realism to write romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, Selma Lagerlof became in 1909 the first woman and also the first Swedish writer to win"

It sounds as if SL intentionally became the first woman and the first Swedish writer to win the prize.
I think the fact that she is woman and Swedish writer can't be changed.
Please correct me if I miss something

A beautiful question; Vani Kudos to you; and a small tip: When the source is as clear as GMAT PREP, if you mention it, it invites a lot more readers than the staid ‘others’. You will get responses and accolades from ace posters.
Please take it as a cue

You are right. "And Also" is redundant. However some users use this phrase (incorrectly) to emphasize the part following "and also".

Would be also curious on an explanation why "and also" is permitted in this case (although it sounds perfectly fine IMHO).

But as far as I have practiced GMAT questions 'and also' is always wrong . I doubt , is this a valid GMAT question ?

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.
