Okay Iam a little confused at this point. There are two OA's. I also read the testmagic thread and one person there seems to refer to D as the correct answer based on the preposition "made up for". I picked D based on the same analysis. If it is B, can somebody explain why and confirm the source of the question

Don't have an idea of the QA, but my thought is that:
You make up for something. e.g.

Reyes made up for his error by scoring a breathtaking goal in the last minute.

Made up by-- means Feigned.
Made up for -- means compensated for.
Therefore I went with D.

Btwn B and D. I went for B for Brevity.


Can't really say why one is more correct than the other though...

i picked B and didn't consider D.. D sounds wordy and that last part "whatever he lacked in technical skill was more than made up for by" is that "for" necessary? other than that, B is the clear choice.

(A) what was lacking in his technical skill was more than made up by
using verb "was" two times
(B) what he lacked in technical skill was more than made up by
Simple past tense
(C) whatever was lacking in his technical skill was more than made up by
What refers to single noun, because of "was" so, whatever is irrelevant
(D) whatever he lacked in technical skill was more than made up for by
What refers to single noun, because of "was" so, whatever is irrelevant, moreover, used up and for after made. It should be either made up or made for

(E) whatever he lacked in technical skill he more than made up by
What refers to single noun, because of "was" so, whatever is irrelevant . Lacks verb

My choice B
