The British Admiralty and the War Office met in March 1892 to consider a possible Russian attempt to seize Constantinople and how they would have to act militarily to deal with them.
A. how they would have to act militarily to deal with them
B. how to deal with them if military action would be necessary
C. what would be necessary militarily for dealing with such an event
D. what military action would be necessary in order to deal with such an event
E. the necessity of what kind of military action in order to take for dealing with it
Yeah "D" is the correct answer -
1. We need NOUN CLAUSE TO PARALLEL "a possible Russian attempt to seize Constantinople". to generate sentence structure as:
" The British Admiralty and the War Office met in March 1892 to consider X and Y" - X is a noun phrase so we need noun clause / noun phrase to maintain parallelism.
2. "would be" is must here bcoz it says "future in past".
3. In addition to above points: act militarily in A, for dealing in C and for dealing in E are wronly placed.
4. "them" is choice - B is pronoun error.
