Im stuck btwn A and E.

Everything else changes the meaning of the sentence. BCD suggests that the medal of honor is awarded in longoverdue cases.

I stuck up in choice C & E. But I will chose C rather than E.

The correct phrase is "in recognition of".

If C is selected, then this phrase properly fits in the statement.

If E is selected, then " In X recognition of " doesn't fit in the statement.

Morever, longoverdue is one long word which looks akward than "long-overdue". C has used work "long-overdue" while E has used word "longoverdue".

Hence, I selected choice C.

What do u guys thing?

Incorrect for the following reasons.

A - Wordy. usage of which is redundant. The second which is trying to modify the award but fails to do so

B - distorts the original meaning. award for long overdue

C - award...the congressional medal of honour, 2 nouns back to back, grammatically incorrect.

D - contains the same error as in B and C

E suits well here
