Hi Ajit,
The part of the sentence highlighted in red here acts as a modifier which is supposed to modify a noun. In GMAT it is always preferred to have a modifier and noun close together. Hence Barbara jordan is supposed to immediately follow the clause 'Although she had been known as an effective legislator first in the Texas Senate and later in the United States House of Representatives'. With this our choices will narrow down to B and E. E is wrong due to subject verb disagreement.
Hearings-Plural
Was-Singular
B correctly uses 'were' instead of 'was'.

sounds logical.. however, I'm still not quite convinced that whether the use of "which were" here is the best way to go.. the which from "which were" could be as well be refering to two events that appeared in the beginning of the sentence. could any one else please clarify ?

I think the underlined statement is till 'as it was'.

Now the options. D and E can be ruled out as there is a parallelism problem. 'First...and later...' is the correct form.

Between A, B and C. I think B is correct.

A. later in the United States House of Representatives, not until Barbara Jordan’s
participation in the hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon in
1974 was she made a nationally recognized figure, as it was. Incorrect. Problem with parallelism.

B. later in the United States House of Representatives, Barbara Jordan did not
become a nationally recognized figure until 1974, when she participated in the
hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, which were. Correct. “–hearings-which were”

C. later in the United States House of Representatives, it was not until 1974 that
Barbara Jordan became a nationally recognized figure, with her participation in
the hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, which was. Incorrect. “–hearings-which was”

1) Modification: The opening phrase clearly describes a person, so the person should be placed right after that first comma. Eliminate A, C and D.

2) Verbs: In answers B and E, the last word is either "were" or "was", so we need to know the noun that "controls" this verb. Working back into the sentence, you'll find the noun "hearings"….so we need the verb "were." Eliminate E.

Final Answer:B
