films that were... subject verb agreement, eliminate C

(A) Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored - anchored and Robert Fuest cannot be parallel.
(B) Wes Craven, a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films anchored both - same as A
(C) Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored - correct
(D) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored - this option has no working verb
(E) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored both - same as A, B and E

Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored in the slasher-film tropes of Pete Walker and Robert Fuest, yet his forays into mainstream dramatic films helped him achieve respect among a wider audience of film fans and critics.


Meaning:
1. Wes Craven - who was a horror-film director
2. Wes Craven - created a well-known catalog of films
3. These films anchored in the slasher-film tropes of Pete Walker and Robert Fuest
4. Yet his forays into mainstream dramatic films helped him achieve respect among a wider audience of film fans and critics

The meaning of this sentence is pretty forward, so presence of 'both' seems questionable, so we will discuss it in 'errors'

Errors:
Attachment:
A.PNG
A.PNG [ 102.47 KiB | Viewed 216 times ]


Correct idiom:

both X and Y



X and Y must be parallel to each other.
When we generally talking about parallel entities, we just care about only first word that followed after the parallelism marker.
if we want to put preposition it should be once outside or twice inside, this is all that you need to remember about 'both X and Y'

In our case 'both' is incorrect and unclear.

POE


Eliminate (A), (B) and (E) because of 'both' error as explained above
(E) also can be eliminated because of missing verb for subject - Horror-film director Wes Craven

(A) Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored
(B) Wes Craven, a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films anchored both

(C) Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored
(D) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored
(E) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored both

So we are left with (C) and (D)
(D) eliminated 'both' error but introduces another one, there is no verb for subject - Horror-film director Wes Craven

(C) Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored
(D) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored
Attachment:

Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored in the slasher-film tropes of Pete Walker and Robert Fuest, yet his forays into mainstream dramatic films helped him achieve respect among a wider audience of film fans and critics.

This questions tests your knowledge of parallelism and idioms

The correct idiom is Both X & Y , where in X and Y should be parallel

(A) Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored- Incorrect. Both anchored & robert fuest? Dosen't make sense. verb ed modifier cannot be parallel to a noun, also this changes the meaning of the sentence
(B) Wes Craven, a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films anchored both- Incorrect Both in the slasher film tropes & robert fuest? Dosen't maintain the parallelism. It should be slasher in the film tropes of both Peter walker & Robert Fuest.
(C) Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored- Correct. Lets keep this. This correctly conveys the meaning of the sentence & maintains parallelism between Pete walker & robert fuest.
(D) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored- Incorrect There is no verb in this sentence. the clause starting with "who" is a modifier & anchored is a verb ed modifier & not a verb. This makes the sentence fragment
(E) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored both -Incorrect. There is no verb in this sentence as explained in D and it distorts the parallelism as mentioned in B

Both A and B.
and B is not underlined. Both A part looks problematic.
A and B should be parallel.

(A) Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored
(B) Wes Craven, a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films anchored both
(C) Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored - SV Error
(D) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored
(E) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored both

After POE, D should be the correct answer.

Us of 'both' in the original sentence creates a parallelism error. Logically, 'both' should describe 2 preceding elements. But, 'a well-known catalog of films' is a singular entity (1 catalog) can't be referenced using this dual marker.

The use of 'was' to describe Wes Craven may or may not be correct depending on whether he is still alive/whether he is still a horror film director. But we'll review the answer choices to validate this.

(A) Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored - wrong for the use of 'both' as discussed.

(B) Wes Craven, a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films anchored both - Usage of 'both' is wrong. For the 2 elements in the parallel list, viz. 'Pete Walker' and 'Robert Fuest', the phrase 'anchored in the slasher-film tropes of' when preceded by both seems to refer to the 1st element only.


(C) Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored - Correct.

(D) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored - The first part of the sentence "Horror film director...Robert Fuest" doesn't have a verb. However, the same should be an independent clause (and therefore must have a verb).

(E) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored both - Invalid clause error as in option (D) with the additional error of 'both'.

IMO C.

Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored in the slasher-film tropes of Pete Walker and Robert Fuest, yet his forays into mainstream dramatic films helped him achieve respect among a wider audience of film fans and critics.

Wes Craven, "who" --> This is a redundant pronoun. It is already established it is referring to Wes and hence is incorrect. Eliminate any option having "who" after Wes. That eliminates options - A, D and E.

This leaves us with options B and C.

Option B: Wes Craven, a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films anchored both
The error here is "both". It is redundant again as and is already present in the sentence. "in the slasher-film tropes of Pete Walker and Robert Fuest".
Hence, this is incorrect.

Which leaves us with option C-

Option C: Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored.
"was"- > for singular catalog is correct. Hence, this is the correct answer.

Need to check parallelism and S+V agreement

(A) Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored
Incorrect. Parallelism is wrong: "both anchored ... and Robert Fuest" (verb ...and noun)

(B) Wes Craven, a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films anchored both
Incorrect. Wrong parallelism: both in the slasher ... and Robert Fuest

(C) Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored
Correct. Seems that everything is correct here (Also "...catalog of films that was anchored..." is FINE)

(D) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored
Incorrect. No main verb here.

(E) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored both
Incorrect. The same as D. No main verb here. Wrong parallelism in "both ... and..."

The answer choice is C.

B and E have to be eliminated as they are not in alignment with the intended meaning(the original sentence mentions both anchored whereas B and E mention anchored both ).Additionally D and E also make an incomplete sentence. After modifying with Who we essentially have to mention something about the subject we are modifying.
C,D,E also mention "Horror-film director Wes Craven" conveying the idea that Craven was exclusively a horror film director.

(A) Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored
'both' is creating the issue in this option. 'Both' is used for 'Catalog of films'.

(B) Wes Craven, a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films anchored both
'both' is misplaced here. It should be used as "in the slasher-film tropes of both Pete Walker and Robert Fuest"

(C) Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored
Doesn't have any error..............................Correct Answer.

(D) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored
Here, the meaning of 'films anchored' is not clear. 'that' is missing between 'films' and 'anchored'.


(E) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored both
'both' is misplaced here. It should be used as "in the slasher-film tropes of both Pete Walker and Robert Fuest"

Error Analysis: The placement of 'both' is incorrect. Ideally, it would have been appropriate to place 'both' just prior to 'Pete Walker', so that we would have the construction 'both X and Y'. But the way sentence is framed now, it doesn't allow for it, since non-underlined portion is followed by 'in the slasher-film tropes'. 'both' will be very far from the list 'Pete Walker' and Robert Fuest' .

(A) Wes Craven, who was a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films both anchored -Incorrect, for the reasons stated in the error analysis.
(B) Wes Craven, a horror-film director, created a well-known catalog of films anchored both - Incorrect, placement of 'both' is at issue again as the list 'Pete Walker and Robert Fuest' is not following it immediately
(C) Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored - Correct.
(D) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored - Incorrect, There is no verb for subject 'Wes Craven' in the first part of the sentence, making it a fragment.
(E) Horror-film director Wes Craven, who created a well-known catalog of films anchored both - Incorrect, Just as in A and B, placement of 'both' is incorrect and just as in D there is no verb for the subject making the first part of the sentence a fragment.

And: C

Hello experts.

I have a query regarding option (C)

(C) Horror-film director Wes Craven created a well-known catalog of films that was anchored

Is there a rule regarding what should be considered as a subject in the case when the subject is presented in the form of "A OF B" or is it purely meaning driven?

Please find the screenshot attached of an OG question.

It has a similar subject in the form of A OF B followed by that+verb. In the attached question, the subject is plural while here it is singular.

The discussion on the same is here : https://gmatclub.com/forum/the-list-of- ... 41686.html

I just want to get clarity on this and avoid doing such mistakes.
Can someone explain with the reference of these two questions?

Thanks in advance.

C is the answer. :heart




You have nice explanation with pictures, But can you please explain why D is incorrect : It do has a verb Created, followed by who :
As case of who, useage is correct as who can refer back to subject, In this case wes craven is subject , so WHO is correct followed by a verb.
