The sentence is trying to compare situations of two groups of women.

Error: The original sentence has 'comparison' error.

Option A (incorrect): Unlike the low status,....Native American women.... (incorrectly compares status with women).
Option B (CORRECT): Corrects the comparison error and places modifier appropriately.
Option C (incorrect): Native American women, unlike the craftwork (Same error as option A)
Option D (incorrect): Changes the subject of the sentence and is unnecessarily wordy. Moreover, the pronoun 'that' does not clearly have a single unambiguous antecedent.
Option E (incorrect): Wrong usage of 'while....that of...'

In a haste, I thought that using "craftwork" twice would make the answer option B redundant and marked the answer option C; while marking answer option C did not check the error that got introduced because of incorrect comparison. Silly mistake.

Any suggestion, how to avoid such silly mistakes?

Regards,
Akash

We need to make sure that we are comparing the correct entities when comparison sentences are given.

(A) Unlike the low status accorded the craftwork of many women settlers in the nineteenth-century American West, Native American women of the Plains tribes
=> Comparing status vs NA women - so wrong.
(B) Unlike many women settlers in the nineteenth-century American West, whose craftwork was accorded low status, Native American women of the Plains tribes
=> Women vs women - correct.
(C) Native American women of the Plains tribes, unlike the craftwork of many women settlers in the nineteenth-century American West,
=> Women vs craftwork => wrong
(D) The craftwork of many women settlers in the nineteenth-century American West was accorded low status, while that of the Native American women of the Plains tribes => No proper comparison.
(E) While low status was accorded the craftwork of many women settlers in the nineteenth-century American West, that of Native American women of the Plains tribes => Meaning error and lacking proper comparison as desired.

Hello Everyone,

Quote:
Unlike the low status accorded the craftwork of many women settlers in the nineteenth-century American West, Native American women of the Plains tribes often received public recognition,wealth, and prestige for their craftwork.


What an amazing question emphasize the importance of a couple points while solving GMAT C porblems:

i. read the original sentence very carefully
ii. consider the non-underlined portion of the sentence as well while selecting the correct answer choice

At e-GMAT, we keep harping on the first point, that is, to spend a good amount of time with the original sentence to understand what the author intends to convey.

The given official sentence presents comparison. Hence, it becomes imperative that we identify the intended comparison in the sentence.

The sentence says that the craftwork of a particular group of women was not appreciated very much. However, another group of women got name, fame, and money for their craftwork.

If we carefully study the structure of the sentence, it won't take us too long to understand that the non-underlined portion of the sentence defines the entities that are meant to be compared in the sentence.

The non-underlined portion reads often received x, y, and z for their craftwork. This makes it clear that the subject of the verb received must be Native American women of the Plains tribes.

Hence, the sentence intends to compare the two group of women in this sentence. Comparison between any other entities will be erroneous.

Choice B is the only answer choice to present the intended comparison between the two groups of women and hence stands correct.


Now Choice D is another answer choice that does not seem to have any grammatical or logical issue if we only concentrate on the text of this choice. However, putting this choice together with the rest of the sentence will make it clear that per the context of the sentence the women got x,y, and z for their craftwork. The craftwork did not get those for their craftwork.

Hence, a quick look at the non-underlined portion of the sentence while selecting the correct answer can definitely save us a critical error.


Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
Shraddha

Can someone explain why D is wrong? As per breakup below it does have the right pronouns and the meaning.
The craftwork of many women settlers in the nineteenth-century American West was accorded low status (SINGULAR + refers to right subject), while that of the (appears to refer to craftwork of AWwomen) Native American women of the Plains tribes often received x,y and Z.

Would love to understand the error in my understanding above

The craftwork of many women settlers in the nineteenth-century American West was accorded low status, while that of the Native American women of the Plains tribes often received public recognition, wealth, and prestige for their craftwork.

The non underlined part uses 'their', it cannot refer to 'craftwork', it has to refer to plural 'women'.
I dont think there is anything grammatically wrong with D.

(E) While low status was accorded the craftwork of many women settlers in the nineteenth-century American West, that of Native American women of the Plains tribes


The answer is B
Split 1
There is a comparison error in original sentence i.e women are compared to the low status .

Split 2
Notice the non underlined part of the sentence "often received public recognition, wealth, and prestige for their craftwork" their should have a logical antecedent it should refer to Native American women
