E: leading between.....Continuous tense is Wrong.

D: leading to ...systems serving.... Continuous tense is Wrong.

C: have led....Present perfect tense is Wrong. ( work got earlier in past and is not continuing in the present. ) FOR serving... is again wrong idiomatic expression and also uses wrong tense

B: to the construction.... to serve...OKAY parallelism is maintained. "have led" is the Present Prefect Tense, which is wrong, because work/construction was done within the specified period and not continuing till now!

A: Good! no mistake

what is OA?

I asked earlier too, for some other question, could you please specify source for your questions? They are indeed nice and might help others too in the forum!

LM,
There is no specific source . But of most of the verbal questions are picked from other forums( urch), questions that did not have proper explanation.
Regarding Quant , I have a list of hard questions and few permutations question compilations .They are floating around some thread here. If you don't have PM me , I can mail you.
