Some Marxist scholars contend that the true revolution will occur only when the transformation of both labor and management into antagonistic classes is completed, and when they are acting solely out of class interest.

A is completed, and when they are acting solely out of class interest.
B are completed, and when they act solely out of class interest.
C is completed, and when it acts solely out of class interest.
D are completed, and when both of these groups act solely out of class interest.
E is completed, and when both of these groups act solely out of class interest.

E is the correct answer. Let us examine the changes among the answer choices. The most striking change has to be is or are. We know that there is a Subject-Verb problem here. Since the subject transformation is singular, we can automatically eliminate B and D, which bear the inappropriate are. This is also a Pronoun problem since we also have they or it in the last clause of the sentence. Since in this part of the sentence we are clearly discussing labor and management, the it in C is inappropriate, and we can eliminate that answer choice. E is better than A because the present continuous tense in A (they are acting) is unnecessary and both of these groups is less ambiguous than the they in A.

I read somewhere when 2 clauses are connected with "and", the verb becomes plural...is that correct?

Yes Provided those 2 clauses are playing the role of joint subject of the sentence.

In this example, this is not the case because here transformation is the subject.

the transformation of both labor and management into antagonistic classes is completed
