In the 1870s, small groups of immigrants, many from Eastern Europe, formed the earliest anarchist parties in the United States, but most Americans became concerned about the movement only after when the bloody Haymarket Riot occurred in 1886.

A) became concerned about the movement only after when the bloody Haymarket Riot occurred in 1886
B) became concerned about the movement only after 1886, when the bloody Haymarket Riot occurred
C) became concerned about the movement only after the occurrence of the bloody Haymarket Riot in 1886
D) developed concerns about the movement only after the time of the bloody Haymarket Riot in 1886
E) developed concern about the movement only after there being the bloody Haymarket Riot in 1886

I am little bit skeptical about the OA...

Hi Jackouille,
Option B make the second part of sentence as below.
Americans became concerned about the movement only after 1886, when the bloody Haymarket Riot occurred

Don't you think the line seems bit awkward? Action in the sentence has happened after 1886 as well as after Riot. Both are connected by comma. When two sentences are connected by when (as conjunction), we don't use comma between them.

A) became concerned about the movement only after when the bloody Haymarket Riot occurred in 1886. "after when" is wrong.
B) became concerned about the movement only after 1886, when the bloody Haymarket Riot occurred. Grammatically its correct. But the meaning is changing. It seems they became more concerned because of the year and not because of the riot.
C) became concerned about the movement only after the occurrence of the bloody Haymarket Riot in 1886. Correct. Grammatically and meaning wise
D) developed concerns about the movement only after the time of the bloody Haymarket Riot in 1886 - Changes meaning. Seems to indicate many concerns but in reality we are just told that they became concerned.
E) developed concern about the movement only after there being the bloody Haymarket Riot in 1886. - "there being" is unnecessary.

I second that..
As per the Manhattan Sentence Correction guide..
sentences with 'being' should be generally avoided in GMAT..
I had confusion between C and E...
the 'being' factor helped me to eliminate E...hence, picked C

@rohitgupta86, thanks for showing me evil spirit of 'being' :x Its good idea to eliminate the option.
I chose C because, Preposition after should be followed by an event that indicates specific point of time i.e. Occurrence. Its awkward to read after there being..riot

Hi Jackouille,

Don't you think the line seems bit awkward? Action in the sentence has happened after 1886 as well as after Riot. Both are connected by comma. When two sentences are connected by when (as conjunction), we don't use comma between them.



umeshpatil,

I am not really seeing it either, are you indicating that the awkwardness occurs that the people only became concerned after the year 1886, which is somewhat bizarre to refer to an event in the scope of an entire year? I feel that the sentence following correctly modifies the year telling the reader what happened that year that made people become concerned with the movement.

Any clarification helps.

Thanks.

thx for your answer but I still don't get the point here. "when the bloody Haymarket occured" modifies the year 1886 so it seems compeltely legit to me. Especially, I don't see why C would correct the problem.

The real problem is the intent. If you see the main sentence(A) it says that .............. the bloody Haymarket Riot occurred in 1886 and after that the movement.
B says............... only after 1886, when the bloody Haymarket Riot occurred
This gives meaning that ...........movement gets attention when the bloody riot occurred not the original meaning after riot.

The original sentence states that Americans developed concerns about the movement only after the Riot of 1886. The sentence does not exactly state the year when these concerns developed, it only provides information on the year when the riot occurred


B) became concerned about the movement only after 1886, when the bloody Haymarket Riot occurred :- this option although grammatically correct changes the meaning of the original sentence, in addition to telling when the riots occurred it also tells you when American`s developed concerns

C) became concerned about the movement only after the occurrence of the bloody Haymarket Riot in 1886 :- this option corrects the meaning change in option B, by shifting the preposition in 1886 after occurrence to correctly modify only the occurrence of riots

The riot actually occurred in 1886. But according to B, the riot occurred (at an unspecified time) after 1886.
