At the beginning of the year, the city allocated $150 million to cover the increases in wages that it expected to approve as a result of negotiations with the municipal labor unions.
(A) increases in wages that it expected to approve as a result of negotiations
(B) increased wages it expected to approve from negotiations
(C) increasing wages expected to be approved as a result of negotiating
why B and C error?
B) increased is wrong b/c wages are yet to be approved, and not already approved.
C) increasing is wrong b/c present continuous tense doesn't hold good. wages are not increasing, they are going to increase (and that will be one time).
