That the XXXXX than that she was/is a woman

E/D left, is or was... [is more of a landmark and that she is a woman] or [is more of a landmark and that she was a woman]

E should be the one.

E

being usage must handle with care on the Gmat SC.

being is the continuous form of the verb ‘Be’. We use “Being” when action is temporary. or for passive voice.

A, B out. C out

hence D or E. D out for WAS. E maintains parallelism

+1 E

Arrange the sentence and you will see:

More of a landmark in the industry is THAT the new managing editor rose from the publications soft news sections to a leadership program than THAT she is a woman.
