Of the top-grossing films of the 1980s, only a few, having a compliance with MPAA standards, could be seen by children without parental guidance.

A) Of the top-grossing films of the 1980s, only a few, having a compliance with MPAA standards,
having a compliance is wrong here
B) Of the top-grossing films of the 1980s, only a few, which complied with MPAA standards,
makes most sense when "only a few"vis removed
C) Only a few of the top-grossing films of the 1980s, complying with MPAA standards
complying not correct usage
D) Only a few of the top-grossing films of the 1980s, in which the MPAA standards were complied with,
close but not concise
E) Only a few of the top-grossing films of the 1980s complied with MPAA standards,
wrong

E needs 'AND' to connect the clauses.

So E cannot be correct.

Why not C??

Seems less wordy and still grammatically correct.

C is not correct because it is unclear if the children are complying or if the films are complying.

I thought passive voice was not preferred in gmat.

This is tricky but think i will go with B.

Something worth remebering from Manhattan SC book

On Gmat it is preferable to use a modifer begning with a relative pronoun and a simple verb tense than using -ing form of the verb.

Thus one more reason why B is prefered over C

OA please?

Also, another reason for going with B - consistency in tense
'complied' -> 'could'
