IMO, 'attributed' and 'result' are redundant. A, B and D are out.

Now, looking at the meaning- something was written in French revolution, and that was Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Man (1790) and A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792). Only 'C' modifies it correctly.

"Attributed to" means "to result from" or "to be the result of" - option A and B both have redundancy issues.

The idiomatic template of ‘attribute to’ is that one attributes X to Y, where X and Y are parallel in the form of nouns and the ‘to’ is a preposition. In A and B, one will find that what follow ‘to’ are verbs, thereby rendering them as infinitives, an unparallel structure. In C, the ‘attributed’ is followed by ‘the ills (a noun) to another noun, the dominance. That is the reason C wins over and A and B for using correct idiomatic construction

Some posters are arguing that attribute to and result from are redundant. Is redundancy an issue here or the issue is in ||'sm as you have mentioned attribute X to Y, X and Y are not || in A and B.

Correct Idiom is attribute X to Y, where X and Y should be parallel.

Sorry Abhi for my unclear message.
Let’s now analyse the usage of the word ‘to’. The word can act in two ways, one as a part of an infinitive verbal such as ‘to sing’, ‘to play’ or ‘to walk’. You might see that when it is part of the infinitive, a verb always follows the word ‘to’.
The second use of ‘to’ be as a preposition that precedes a noun in prepositional phrases. To Delhi, to freedom, to the dominance etc. Here the word ‘to’ is always followed by a noun.
Point 3 is that, idiomatically ‘attributed’ will only take the ‘to’ as a phrasal verb in the role of a preposition. Then what follows must be a noun. On the contrary, the ‘to’ in ‘attribute to’ never takes a verb
Try to Google attribute with any of the words such as ‘attribute to be’ or ‘attribute to result from’, or ‘attribute to have been the result of’, and you will get the prompt response that there is no such phrase in English Dictionary. That is the simple reason why A, b and D are instantly out.
The final tie is between C and E. E is out because of improper modification and C wins the grand finale.
Hope I have made amends

1. The beginning is a modifier so D and E are out.
2. 'Attributed' and 'Result' are redundant and hence A, B are out.
3. Left over one is C and that is the OA.

The original sentence correctly relates the two writings with the attribute. However, the idiom attribute A to B is not used. Instead it uses 'to be'

The only answer that corrects the idiom is C

D and E are out due to incorrect modification.
Attributed to and to result from means the same thing.
A and B are out.

We are left with C, and that's the right answer. Concise, and without grammatical errors.

OG 2017 New Question


The idiom here is "attributed x to y." The issue with A and B are the redundant phrases "to be the result of" and "to result from." The issue with E is that Mary Wollstonecraft is being incorrectly modified. What was written early in the French Revolution? Mary Wollstonecraft's X and Y

A) Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Man (1790) and A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) attributed Europe’s social and political ills to be the result of - The correct idiom is attributed + to + noun phrase

B) Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Man (1790) and A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) attributed Europe’s social and political ills to result from - The verb attribute idiomatically requires the preposition to followed by a noun phrase, not the infinitive marker to followed by a verb.

C) Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Man (1790) and A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) attributed Europe’s social and political ills to - correct

D) in A Vindication of the Rights of Man (1790) and A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), Mary Wollstonecraft attributed Europe’s social and political ills to have been the result of - Modification error. The phrase "Written early in the French Revolution" is modifying books written by MW.

E) Mary Wollstonecraft, in A Vindication of the Rights of Man (1790) and A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), attributed Europe’s social and political ills to - Modification error. The phrase "Written early in the French Revolution" is modifying books written by MW.

Take away: attributed + to + noun phrase (not a verb)
