(B) well-organized

why is "was well-organized" wrong?
hmm... I don't have a technical answer for that, but "by my ear" "was well-organized" doesn't sound right. I could be wrong.

B for me too.

Well-organised is an adjective, not a verb. Hence usage of 'was' is incorrect.

^ B ^

consider that + sentence
>> I consider that the weather will be fine.

>> I consider the meeting necessary.
>> We consider the film suitable.

Yes, we need an adjective to properly complete the description.

(B)

B is correct, because not only it sounds better, but also we need an adjectve to describe management... management is not the subject of the sentece, so it doesn't need a verb!

if we want to use "was" , then the 2nd part of the sentence becomes a clause instead of a Phrase

and a clause needs to be introduced by "that" in this case

option A is wrong

option B is correct because "well-organised" is an adjactive
