Hi


The given choice E.------ the earlier works on slavery, Blassingame in his
Your choice E.------ the earlier works on slavery, “Blassingame’s (work)” and “ in his study” will be redundant as well as meaningless

if' in his' is also removed and the sentence is 'the earlier works on slavery, Blassingame’s innovative study..." is this sentence right?

Then there will be no difference between D and E except for the article 'the'.

Hi,
Use of that of is very confusing. I have read all the posts and there are various opinions. Experts... chetan2u egmat Can you please clear my confusion?
1. what exactly is that of referring to? One post says it is referring to earlier works and since it is referring to earlier works(plural), a plural pronoun those of should be used. Will the sentence be right if we use those of instead of that of? But what is the point of using a pronoun here in the first place. Can't we just say "unlike earlier works on slavery"? Will this change the meaning?
2. I feel that of is not referring to anything. It has no antecedent. Am i right? Also in general context can that of refer to any part of the sentence?
