As U.S. nuclear attack submarines prowl their familiar haunts deep within the oceans of the world these days, they increasingly are engaged in missions far different from the tasks for which they were built and for which their crews were trained over the last forty years.
(A) they increasingly are engaged in missions far different from the tasks for which they were built
(B) the missions they increasingly engage in are far different than the tasks they were built for
(C) they engage increasingly in missions that differ significantly from the tasks they were built for
(D) the missions they engage in are increasingly different than the tasks for which they were built
(E) they increasingly engage in missions far different than the tasks for which they were built

There seems to be a typo here, but I would still want you guys to try.

C it is. 45 sec
B, D, E are out as idiom is "different from"
A) "built for" is correct construction as it is the purpose for which those subs were built
C is best

1Min 45Sec. (Took too much)
IMO (A) is best. (I believe there is a typo in (A))
In (C), "missions that differ" is incorrect. "missions" is plural while "that" is singular.

"different than" eliminates BDE.

C has "increasingly" misplaced.

OA is A.

IMHO, A should have been... "they are increasingly engaged".

mba,
when you say "missions that", "that" refers to "missions" and not something else.........right guys ????

agree with you ashk. I did not like the form "increasingly are engaged" and C does have an error in it. Sounds as if it were the "engaging" which is increasing.

yeah! "that" refers to "missions", it should be "those" because "missions" is plural.

Paul,

I think the usage of "they engage increasingly" is correct and the problem is with that vs those as mba pointed out. any ways my FA would have been C.

(A) they increasingly are engaged in missions far different from the tasks for which they were built
(C) they engage increasingly in missions that differ significantly from the tasks they were built for

C's "missions that differ significantly" is inferior to A's "missions far different "

More importantly look at the structure of A: "engaged in missions....for which they they built, and for which..."
C has "from the tasks they were built for and for which"
A has a more parallel structure
