I would go with C


(A) again venture to Mars, a planet now known to be
again venture wrong usage
(B) venture to Mars again, a planet now known for being
"known for being"...wrong usage here
(C) will venture to Mars again, a planet now known as being
Seems right
(D) venture again to Mars, a planet that is known now to be
wrong
(E) will again venture to Mars, a planet known now as being
wrong

Going for A.

Don't like the usage of "will" and "as being" in C

Can not be A because 'spacecraft venture(S)...'

Between C & E, I like C better.

I might have agreed with A if it said "venture again" instead of "again venture."

Actually plural of spacecraft is spacecraft: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/spacecraft

That's something new I learned.

Answer is C [#permalink] New post 29 Nov 2006, 09:47
C because We are talking about something that's going to happen in future. Will is needed in this sentence

again modifies venture. adverb typically comes after verb. A and E eliminated. BCD left. C sounds best, but does anyone have an OA?

Aor B
Usually answer choices with "being" are incorrect.
Even though "again venture" in A sounds weird, I will still pick "A"

Can anyone please explain , why the answer is not E
In Choice A the word"to be" is used which according to GMAT English is incorrect.

Again is an adverbe, and as such, it can be placed anywhere in the sentence (unless it separates clauses, hinders understanding, etc).

And as the rest of A seems just fine,

it's A.

(I know, I know, a bit late...)
