609.Revered by an ill-informed citizenry, the Duke of York was feted opulently for several months before there was denunciation and exile. (A) there was denunciation and exile (B) he was to be denounced with exile (C) being denounced and exiled (D) denunciation and his exile (E) being exiled, having been denounced
Three things happened to the Duke : 1) He was feted opulently 2) Later, he was denounced 3) and was exiled.
Using the Verb > Noun rule for concision - Eliminate A, D. (D also screws the parallelism). B changes the meaning/intent of the sentence by considering denounciation and exile as related. E is just outright awkward.
Hence we are left with C, which uses "being" in an acceptable manner.
