Hi eybrj2,
It was only after Katharine Graham became publisher of The Washington Post in 1963 that it moved into the first rank of American newspapers, and it was under her command that the paper won high praise for its unrelenting reporting of the Watergate scandal.

Choice E is incorrect for two reasons. Firstly, it somewhat distorts the intended meaning of the sentence by taking away the emphasis. The original sentence clearly says that The Washington Post became the leading newspaper only after KG took charge of it and it was during her tenure only that the paper won high acclaims for its unrelenting reporting of the Watergate scandal.
Choice E removes this emphasis. Per this choice, the sentence means that The Washington Post won high praises for its unrelenting reporting of the Watergate scandal under KG’s command. By the way, the newspaper moved to first place after KG became the publisher. This point comes as additional information in the sentence. This is certainly not the intended meaning of the sentence.
Also if you compare “after KG’s becoming” with “after KG became”, the latter is better, clearer and more direct. So for these two reasons Choice E is not correct.

Hope this helps.
Shraddha
