writing help

<p>Hey guys this is my first post! Can you all help me on this writing question?</p>

<p>With the 1977 publication of Song of Solomon, Toni Morrison [(both received popular and)] critical acclaim.</p>

<p>a) both received popular and
b) both received popular and also
c) received popular, along with
d) received popular as well as
e) received both popular and also </p>

<p>Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>Im pretty sure the answer is D.</p>

<p>my reason for choosing D is the following:</p>

<p>A and B are incorrect since its wrong to say "both" before the verb, "received".</p>

<p>C is wrong because it doesnt successfully answer "popular <em>what</em> ", it just says "received popular, along with critical acclaim, <em>missing</em> "</p>

<p>E is wrong because you dont need the word "also"</p>

<p>and since you didnt post the correct answer, i just googled it to verify and the actual article this question is from appeared haha </p>

<p>:With the 1977 publication of Song of Solomon, she (Toni Morrison) received popular as well as critical acclaim</p>
