E for me.

"were" is wrong....hence A and B are out. Also, between C, D and E, "would become" is required and hence E is the answer.

I'll go with E; the other choices have something or other wrong with them.

Singular subject “Harriet Tubman” requires singular verb – eliminate A and B
Between C, D and E:
C: Illogical past perfect – implies become known occurred before create
D: no need to have present perfect (progressive)
E: Holds good

Answer: E

(C) had become known as the Underground Railroad, and was
(D) has been becoming known as the Underground Railroad, and was
(E) would become known as the Underground Railroad, and was


Subject is HT means was is correct. A & B are out.

D is continuous tense and wrong.

C is wrong because it uses had.

We need to reflect the future in the past (Eww!) For lack of better words. IMO, E is correct

C is the correct option. It reflects something that happened before the civil war started. Civil war started in the past & is over now, 2 events that occured in the past. E lacks 'have' that should have followed would.

(B) would become known as the Underground Railroad, and were (were is WRONG)
(C) had become known as the Underground Railroad, and was (past perfect is WRONG. It says that
she created the system after it became known as Underground Railroad)
(D) has been becoming known as the Underground Railroad, and was (present perfect is WRONG)
(E) would become known as the Underground Railroad, and was (CORRECT. IMO)

Between B and E.

Harriet Tubman, along with other former slaves and white abolitionists - isn't this plural, thus required WERE?

A and B are wrong because were is wrong.
C - Wrong . Because it means that when it was getting constructed it had become known. Changing the meaning of sentence.
D - been becoming - is wrong. This cannot be progressive verb.
E - Correct

E would be my choice as well. As a courtesy, you should also post the OA. It is freaking crazy to beg for the damn OAs from you most of the time. Please be generous as you know this community is built on the very fundamentals of "giving back" while you learn. If you care not to post your OAs, you might as well not post your questions. BTW, this is not just my personal observation, I guess. Most folks in this forum feel that way and I am sure your lack of cooperation gets spotted by our moderators, who do not encourage such behavior. So, please DO make your OAs available shortly after you post the questions. Thanks.

Mods, please keep a tab on this poster and share a few of your kind words of wisdom.

Dude, I posted this question on 22nd Sep. And on 24th Sep you're crying loud for OA along with your "helpless" explanations. Your coming up with your "IMO" answer doesn't necessarily mean that most of them out there are crying for OA, or most of them have gone through the problem. 2 days is way to short for declaring "your personal observation". So have patience.

Well, now I think you have made it a bit nasty with that arrogant response. Are you implying that you will only post the OA if you feel that you have gotten an "explanation" for your postings? If that is the attitude you are going to carry around in this forum, it is going to get really tough for you to elicit that much needed response you are looking for your questions. Not everyone has the luxury of time to sit and write a much needed explanation for every single question they would like to answer in a given amount of time the spend on gmatclub. So, most of us at times opt to post an IMO instead of a much detailed explanation, given the amount of time we get to spend on answering questions on this forum. If one is to answer 100 questions in a span of 2 hrs in this forum, he or she might only have the luxury of time to post the IMOs. If he/she opts to write detailed explanations it may be possible to answer only a few questions during the limited time. When there is enough time at hand, no one walks away from posting detailed explanations and we all do respect that code -- learn while you help other learn.

BTW, it is almost 29th Sep and you are yet to post the OA. If you haven't looked well, no one has posted a response ever since you posted that arrogant response. That should suggest you people are not fond of the way you behave around here and I am sure the mods are taking note of it too!

Sorry dude, I had my D-Day on 27th and scored 710 (Q 49 V37). Only today I got time to come online and post my reply. I hope you understand it. I have no intention to act arrogant or make people wait for OA. Just that, I was busy in pre-test preparation and then post-exam celebration.

OA is E. The question is from ManH test series. If you guys need further explanation for OA, please do let me know.

I regret that my absence has sent bad vibes about me to GMATClub people. I'll try to post all OAs ASAP now. Wish everyone good luck for GMAT. :-D
