Ive recently started preparing for GMAT so still stuck on basic OG..please someone respond to the following 2 questions..explain how to approach these problems...

OG #20
Based on accounts of various ancient writers, Scholars have painted a sketchy picture of the activities of an all-female cult that, perhaps as early as the 6th century B.C, worshipped a goddess known in Latin A BONA DEA, "the good godess".
Why is A not the answer.

Og#24 why is the answer not E but C

A living being cannot be "based" on something. An idea is based on something, a theory is based on something, but a Scholar cannot be based on something. In the original sentence, "Based on" modifies "Scholars", so it is incorrect.

I don't have OG11 so I can't see question 24.
