Although some might think that classics scholars possess an entirely impractical body of knowledge, references to classical Greek and Latin are found in a wide variety of cultural mediums, from poetry to theater to dance.
A. from poetry to theater to dance B. from poetry to theater and dance C. in the range of poetry, theater, and dance D. such as from poetry to theater to dance E. such examples as poetry, theater, and dance
(A) The answer correctly expresses the intended idea. The construction from...to...to... in the original sentence is idiomatic; this idiom is used to frame a list of a diverse range of concepts. The phrase "in the range of" (choice (C)) is not idiomatic. The correct form of the unidiomatic expressions in choices (D) and (E) is such as x, y and z, an idiom with a slightly more restrictive meaning (narrower scope) than from...to...to....
(A) is the best answer. -------------
Why is option B wrong? Actually, correct idiom is from X to Y. Can anyone elucidate on the usage and distinction between A and B option?
