Unlike modern feminism, which derives much of its strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holley in her novels made domesticity the basis of womenâ€™s liberation.

(A) Unlike modern feminism, which derives much of its strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holley in her novels
- Faulty comparison. Compares a person to feminism

(B) Unlike the modern feminist who derives much of her strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holleyâ€™ s novels
- compares person (feminist) to a novel

(C) Unlike modern feminism, deriving much of its strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holleyâ€™s novels
- participle 'deriving' is wrong. modern feminism cannot be currently derving its strength from rejection...

(D) Unlike those of the modern feminist who derives much of her strength from rejection of an oppressive home, novels of Marietta Holley
- This choice is good. 'those' will refer to books of other modern feminist. This compares well with novels of Mariettea Holley.

(E) Unlike those of modern feminism, which derive much of their strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holleyâ€™ s novels
- feminism cannot write books.

D it is.

We have discussed before.

OA is E.

The relative clause modifies 'those'(novels) as the '..domesticity the basis
of womenâ€™s liberation..' modifies novels.

i got stuck between "A" and "E"

i was inclined towards "A" because i thought that it was "marietta holley" and not her "novels" which made "domesticity the basis of women's liberation".

i am still confused how in "E" can "novels" make "domesticity the basis of women's liberation".

again what is wrong in "A" if we compare "modern feminism"(noun) with "marietta holley"(a noun)

Hello, feminism is ideology. We cannot compare one person with ideology.
So, A is out.

Besides, the two relative clause modifies the novels. It's more parallel.
