During the 1992 Presidential campaign, President George H. W. Bush and his promise four years earlier to never raise taxes experienced considerable criticism from economic conservatives who felt betrayed by Bush's 1990 tax-hike, which he implemented over the objections of economic conservatives who decried tax hikes, insisted that low taxes created wealth, and contended that deregulation promoted innovation.

Between A and B as, C,D,E are out because of parallelism error.

I may go with A on exam day as I think B is missing the detail "his promise four years" ...
But on the other side,I am doubtful if we can say a promise experiencing criticism (in addition to Bush)

B is the best answer.

A is too wordy
C, D & E are not parallel.

A) President George H. W. Bush and his promise four years earlier to never raise taxes experienced considerable criticism from economic conservatives who felt betrayed by Bush’s 1990 tax-hike, which he implemented over the objections of economic conservatives who decried tax hikes, insisted that low taxes created wealth, and contended that deregulation promoted innovation

“his promise four years earlier to never raise taxes” cannot experience criticism but “George Bush can. Hence incorrect.

B) President George H. W. Bush experienced considerable criticism from economic conservatives who felt betrayed by Bush’s 1990 tax-hike, which he implemented despite his past promises and the objections of economic conservatives who decried tax hikes, insisted that low taxes created wealth, and contended that deregulation promoted innovation

Correct Answer

C) President George H. W. Bush and his promise four years earlier to never raise taxes experienced considerable criticism from economic conservatives who felt betrayed by Bush’s 1990 tax-hike, which he implemented despite his past promises, the objections of economic conservatives who decried tax hikes, the insistence that low taxes create wealth, and the contention that deregulation promoted innovation

“his promise four years earlier to never raise taxes” cannot experience criticism but “George Bush can. Hence incorrect.

D) President George H. W. Bush experienced considerable criticism from economic conservatives who felt betrayed by Bush’s 1990 tax-hike, which he implemented despite his past promises and the objections of economic conservatives who decried tax hikes, having insisted that low taxes created wealth and contending that deregulation promotes innovation

No main verb. Hence incorrect

E) President George H. W. Bush experienced considerable criticism from economic conservatives who felt betrayed by Bush’s 1990 tax-hike, which he implemented despite his past promises and the objections of economic conservatives who decried tax hikes, insist that low taxes created wealth, and contend that deregulation promoted innovation

Sentence require a past tense(remember this event happened in 1992). But the above choice is in present tense. Hence incorrect.

Expert's post
Most of this question's difficulty stems from its sheer size; it takes a long time just to read the options. But B is the best choice here.

As already mentioned, a promise cannot experience anything, so options A and C are out. Choices D and E fail at parallelism.

I will go with B here.

A and B were the only contenders and A talked about the promise receiving criticism.
