In the second Q, I belive "making" is perfectly correct, while "which" could be fine, its not very clear what that "which" is refering to, unless we treat the first part as a "rising prices". Not sure we can do it in this sentence. If anyone knows for sure, please explain.

Dear New1975,

Could you please post one question per thread. Posting one question per
thread helps to discuss the question in detail and avoids confusion. Moreover,
could you provide and appropriate heading such as "SC-Mary Baker Eddy".

D and E
Agree with Kpadma for new1975 to please separate questions in different threads, it would be appreciated.

1- D "at a time" is perfectly fine to refer to "a span of time"/"period of time"
B is wrong to me as "typically" should have been placed after women to properly infer that it was the "narrow range of choices" which was typical and not the women themselves

Kpadma,

For me its not so much an issue of During vs At, its an issue of HAVE HAD vs HAD. Why is have had prefered here over had?

Firstly sorry guys for posting the 2 SCs in one thread. I will try and post one per one thread.

D & E are the correct answers. Just an observation that Paul always gets it right.

I had got these wrong when I solved and hence had posted these questions in the forum.

Thanks guys.
