B.) 'will made' --> 'made' is the incorrect tense when used with 'will'

C.) 'powerful municipal within twenty years' has no meaning

D.) 'had become' --> 'had become' should be replaced with 'became'

E.) 'powerful reality' --> meaning changed from powerful municipal to powerful reality

I'll take A on this one.

OA given for this is A.

Picked up this question from internet.
It was mentioned that the source is Kaplan.

1890`s is well in the past, so the structure "will had made" clarifies a future prediction within a historical context.

(A) Stands.

I am attaching an explanation that was given in another site for the same question.

The tense usage that works with "WIthin a few years" is same as that which works with "by"

By the time the clockstruck 1, the mouse HAD finsihed eating the cheese
Within a few years of the annoucement, he HAD come up with a strategy ...


The above was the best explanation I could find.

Answer should be D
B) will made is incorrect
C) this statement suggests that in 20 years the municipal will make this happen.
D) sounds good
E) the word powerful is used with reality which is wrong.

Hence D

"will had made is always wrong". the verb is "had made" which is in past perfect. imo, the dependent clause with "within 20 years" should follow the independent clause. still confused how dependent clause

IMo..you guys are wrongly interpreting the use of will.
Will here doesnt refer to the tense..instead..will means..wish...

I am willing to study hard for the gmat exam. Notice the use of will in this statement...I think it is this will...what is being refrred to in d question.

i havenot said that "will" here is a verb (or tense). it is pretty much clear that "will" is used as a part of noun phrase "a powerful municipal will".
