    First, if Lotte Jacobi was a native of Germany, she had to have emigrated to New York after she'd resided in her native country. The use of the past perfect "had" with "emigrated" makes it sound as though she emigrated to New York first. This is illogical. Eliminate A, B, and E.

    D: Although she was less successful after emigrating to New York when compared to
    her native Germany


    There's no logical way to interpret this construction. Are we comparing a person to native Germany? Are we comparing her experience emigrating to New York to her experience emigrating to her native Germany? Either interpretation is incoherent. D is out.

    That leaves us with C

    When looking at SC questions, it's important to assess what's OUTSIDE of the underlined portion as well as what's in the underlined portion.

    She was less successful after she had emigrated to New York compared to her native Germany, photographer Lotte Jacobi nevertheless earned a small group of discerning admirers, and her photographs were eventually exhibited in prestigious galleries across the United States.

    David effectively ruled out other answer choices based on comparison issues. but you should also have noticed the CLAUSE issues in the original sentence. The non-underlined portion contains a full independent clause (in blue), but answer choice A also contains a full independent clause (red). This is a run-on sentence (or comma-splice).

    The portion of the sentence before the comma must be change to either a DEPENDENT clause, or a MODIFYING phrase. We can eliminate A and E because they contain independent clauses rather than modifiers.
