(D)Included in the pioneer journalist Nellie Bly`s exploits are

(E)The pioneer journalist`s exploits og Nellie Bly included


(A) A pioneer journalist, Nellie Bly ..... would have been correct. Here, it is Nellie Bly's exploits
Example:
My friend, John's car is blue. [wrong]
My friend, John has a car that is blue. [correct]

My friend is John, not John's car!

Same here: A pioneer journalist is Nellie Bly, not Nellie Bly's exploits.

(D) is passive. In GMAT, active > passive. Nellie Bly's is passive.

(E) is passive. journalist's is passive.

(C) seems wordy and the sentence looks wrong. 'including' sounds as though she is still including in her exploits. It's already done. Hence, included would be correct.

(B) is what I would choose.

Can you please confirm whether B is the answer to this question?
