(D): correct: Oberlin College in Ohio was a renegade institution in deciding at its founding in 1833 to accept both men and women as students.


(A) (B): wrong: "1833 founding" : seems like sentence is saying there were many foundings and currently we are talking about 1833 founding.

(C): wrong : "it was founded in 1833 for its decision to accept "

(E): awkward constructiton

D is the best.

(A) is clearly wrong. 'at' should not be used
(B) is disjointed
(C) it's decision to accept should come in front. The sentence makes it seems like the college was renegade even when it's just founded.
(E) - lengthy, awkward

D is best but the sentence is awkward period even with D
however, if C had commas in the right places it would be the best choice

wht u guys think?

Oberlin College in Ohio was a renegade institution at its 1833 founding for deciding to accept both men and women as students.

(A) at its 1833 founding for deciding to accept
(B) for the decision at its 1833 founding to accept
(C) when it was founded in 1833 for its decision to accept
(D) in deciding at its founding in 1833 to accept
(E) by deciding at its founding in 1833 on the acceptance of

I choose D. "in deciding... to accept" sounds best.

A is wrong, its 1833 is weird.
(B) for the decision at its 1833 founding to accept
wrong, the same as choice A.
(C) when it was founded in 1833 for its decision to accept
'for' is wrong usage.
(D) in deciding (at its founding in 1833) to accept
pick this, 'decide to' is idiomatic
(E) by deciding at its founding in 1833 on the acceptance of
'on the acceptance of' is no better than accept
