Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Read each of the options in your head. Which sounds more sensible? I'm not exactly sure, but I would guess A. I'm not sure if it is A or B. B sounds awkard to me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Idiomatic Pairs. Like 'neither .. nor' 'both .. and' 'either .. or' and 'whether .. or'. There's a pair in here, too. It's 'because .. and'. The only option that has 'and' in it, and satisfies the rule are options C and E. Let's compare: c. frustrating because of its chaotic structure and it is delightful in its originality. e. frustrating because of its chaotic structure and delightful because of its originality. To you, which one has better flow? The best option here would be 'e' because it has better parallelism, 'frustrating BECAUSE of its structure and delightful BECAUSE of its originality'. On either sides of the modifying 'and', the phrase is balanced. Other options either don't make sense or don't follow the idiomatic pair rule.
