Will go with D.

We need singular verb here
expenditure.......produces.

So we are left with C and D.
In E, producing doesn't sound right

B/w C and D.........I choose D.

expenditure is singular requires usage of produces

architecture requires X, even though we are not certain X produces architecture

D it is

I'll go with C as it corrects the subject verb agreement error and it's not wordy...

I believe it is between C & D. D sounds bit more verbose.
I pick C.

C and D are the only choices with correct subject verb agreement.

In D, what is the 'it' in 'even though it is by no means certain that the expenditure of large sums of money produces'? I can't seem to refer it back to anything.

247. Distinguished architecture requires the expenditure of large sums of money, even if it is by no means certain that the expenditure of large sums of money produce distinguished architecture.

(A) even if it is by no means certain that the expenditure of large sums of money produce
(B) even if it is by no means certain that the expenditure of large sums of money will produce
(C) even though there is no certainty that the expenditure of money in large sums produces
(D) even though it is by no means certain that the expenditure of large sums of money produces
(E) though there is no certainty as to the expenditure of money in large sums producing

Well, it is between C and D.

C- there is no certainty that <.....>

I would expect an event just after "that".

D - it is by no means certain that <...>

I would expect a phrase after "that".

I would go with D.

well, the point of contention is : should we use "if" or "though". I think "though " is a better choice. So, it can't be B in my opinion.

I would prefer D to C bcoz "that the expenditure of large sums of money" sounds better than "that the expenditure of money in large sums" and bcoz of "there is" in C.

Really? 'there is....' in gmat is incorrect?


if all choices are with "there/her is........", then we have no choice.

but if there are choices as above, always try to avoid "there/her is..........".

you can check on some questions.
