Doctor Alex (A) /was an educated(B) /man of letters (C)/ no error (D)
The above question was asked in my exam in which I was asked to mark the error in the given sentence from four options (A,B,C,D). I know the error, it's that educated here is superfluous with man of letters as man of letters itself means educated but I am confused whether to mark the answer as B or C as the sentence can be corrected by two ways Doctor Alex was an educated man or Doctor Alex was a man of letters. That is it can be corrected by both ways (either by correcting B part or C part of given sentence.) What answer should I mark in exam?
