In this case, given that capable of winning and candidate do not select each other, when we combine them in the order shown in sentence C, the sentence becomes ungrammatical. However, when we switch the order of combination of the adjective phrase and the noun, as shown in sentence D, the sentence is now considered grammatical.

    celebrated for its “numerous” merits and virtues (3). It is interesting to note that the word “poetry” itself cannot be found in the first stanza of Dickinson’s poem. In fact, Dickinson never refers to “poetry” by its own name; she refers to the art form as “Possibility” instead (1). The abstract noun “Possibility,” curiously enough, is just that: abstract. It defies definition which, in turn, lends Dickinson’s narrator’s definition of poetry a sense of preeminence. “Possibility” is, after all,…
