E sounds correct.

A, C and D has "..being.." which is incorrect.
And so choice is between B and E.

following the discussed rules of members here, I stayed away from "BEING" as far as I could and thankfully arrived to the correct answer :lol:

ps still don't know why one should avoid it, except read in MGMAT SC that "Being" should be avoided if possible... no reasons... just a statement in the book

Will go with E.

Being should be the last thing to be used in GMAT.
