A.arguing in a treatise for women to have equal political and legal rights
B.arguing in a treatise for equal political and legal rights for women
C.a treatise that advocates women's equal political and legal rights
D.a treatise advocating women's equal political and legal rights
E.a treatise that argued for equal political and legal rights for women
In A, it is unclear whether for women serves as an adjective modifying a treatise (A TREATISE for women) or as an adverb modifying arguing (ARGUING for women).
It must be clear what a modifier is modifying.
Eliminate A.

In B, it is unclear whether for equal political and legal rights for women serves as an adjective modifying a treatise (A TREATISE for equal political and legal rights for women) or as an adverb modifying arguing (ARGUING for equal political and legal rights for women).
It must be clear what a modifier is modifying.
Eliminate B.

In C, a treatise that advocates RIGHTS and FOR changes is not parallel.
Eliminate C.

In D, a treatise advocating RIGHTS and FOR changes is not parallel.
Eliminate D.

Hi Mitch !

I have a query here.If we remove the clear parallelism errors of C, D & E , will these choices be correct?

IMO - an appositive can have it's own tense form , which can be different from the main clause. Can you please confirm my understanding.

SR
