Because A says that there was point in time when dumping was allowed and it stopped at later point of time that also exists in past. However, D says that dumping is still continue.


I think had been is required. The sentence here demands past perfect tense.

Had been allowed: This says the dumping was allowed earlier in lakes. This is earlier in time.
Reduced: This says dumping reduced after the agreement, which is later in time.

Hence A seem to be the correct choice.

D. It's a past progressive. The agreement in XXXX year regulated the amount that was allowed for dumping since year XXXX to present. Therefore "are" is necessary.

Now to choice F. "were" isn't a good choice because of the tense. its past perfect. but dumping goes on even today.

just my 2 cents.

(B) reduced the phosphate amount that municipalities had been dumping
(C) reduces the phosphate amount municipalities have been allowed to dump
(D) reduced the amount of phosphates that municipalities are allowed to dump

Suresh,
What about 1000 RC and 1000 CR?? Are they good, I am planning to use them.


I haven't tried those.


1000 RC and 1000 CR are reliable. I am not an authorizing entity, but have covered all 3 of them. 1000 CR is 90% LSAT, which is quite accurate and same is true about RC.

I heard that SC1000 questions are illegal since they are in violation of the GMAC terms and use copyrighted material.

Yep!

This is the reason that you will find only CR1000 and SC1000 on this or even infact any GMAT prep site, but not SC1000.

I pick A.

B, C are wrong for using 'phosphate amount'. it says municipalities are dumping 'phosphate amount' not 'phosphate'.
E wrong for awkward construction ..'for dumping'

it is between A and D. A is better than D here in telling Municipalities were dumping the Ph before the agreement

IMO A.

read that it's because the 1972 act reduced something that was allowed in the past....so A...had been allowed...

The agreement in 1972 reduced the level of dumping that was previously allowable. Hence I go with A.

Is the OA geniune:)
Because I cant understand how A can be the answer, there is absolutely no need of "had been allowed to dump"..as there is only one action in the past.
