Re: With no other work did New Zealand writer Katherine Mansfield inspire [#permalink]
With no other work did New Zealand writer Katherine Mansfield inspire such lasting admiration in international literary circles as did her short story collection The Garden Party and Other Stories.

A) did her short story collection The Garden Party and Other Stories -> we need to get parallel to "With no other work". But, this option starts with verb "did". Incorrect.

B) had her short story collection The Garden Party and Other Stories -> again, we have comparison phrase started with a verb "had". Incorrect.

C) with her short story collection The Garden Party and Other Stories -> This is better. Let's keep it.

D) her short story collection The Garden Party and Other Stories did -> Parallelism error, as we need to start phrase from "with". Incorrect.

E) her short story collection The Garden Party and Other Stories -> Same as D. Incorrect.

So, I think C.
