Reopening this question.

Recent indications of weakness in the economy have led consumers to be more conservative with their purchases; so depressed have sales figures been as a result that the government has launched several initiatives to actively encourage consumer spending.

(A) so depressed have sales figures been as a result that
(B) the sales figures have been so depressed as a result that
(C) as a result, so depressed has the sales been that
(D) the resulting sales figures having been so depressed that
(E) the sales figures have been so depressed that, as a result,

A, B, E. Which one and why. Will truly appreciate the help

Thanks :-D


i pick E here. its concise, intended meaning is clear and moreover "as a result" is perfectly placed. please correct me if i am wrong.

thats really really really a tough question indeed......i still cant figure it out that why option E is wrong. another thing is that is "the" only reason to eliminate option B. does gmat test only articles?

IMO ' the sales figures' pin points one of the “Recent indications” in B. My problem with A is the placement of “as a result”
