Sevres Porcelain

SAT grammar questions! :) ?

actually two of them.

1. Professor Chen repeated her point that the hero, if given the chance to relive the moment, would choose to [do it].

This is an SAT question, the spot the error type. I know the error is "do it," but I am not sure why that's wrong. Basically, I would like an explanation, please. :)

2. When Catherine the Great had a magnificent dinner service of Sevres porcelain made for her, she was scandalized by its great cost, _____ the subject of prolonged controversy.

fill the blank with...
a) which became
b) so it was to be
c) with a result that i was destined to become
d) therefore becoming
e) consequently it would become

The answer please, and why.

Sorry it's kind of long and wordy.

Part of the SAT grammar is that you shouldn't include words that a sentence can be grammatically correct, without. That means that since the first sentence is grammatically correct without the "do it", the "do it" should not be there.

The answer to #2 is A. You can eliminate C because it is very long and includes many unnecessary words. SAT grammar answers tend to avoid many small words, so B isn't the answer. E cannot be the answer because it would create an independent clause (or complete sentence) after the comma, and an independent clause must be separated from the rest by a period or semicolon. Choice D is wrong because it is unclear which subject is "becoming the subject of prolonged controversy". With choice A, we know that the cost is the subject of controversy; therefore, the answer must be A.
