E.

Hoped and opened are grammatically incorrect. Also the word "proposed", strikes a discordant note except with the word "be".

hmm. may be wrong but I choose E.

directive verb + that + noun + base verb
proposed + that + supplies (for the new wing of the hospital) + be

(for the new wing of the hospital) is a middle man / prepositional phrase that we can ignore.

use of word 'propose' make me think subjunctive and I find B and E.
In B, 'hope to be opened' is not right.
E is my choice.

(A) that supplies for the new wing of the hospital, which hospital administrators hoped to open by the end of the year, will be - Misplaced Modifier modifying hospital instead of its wing

(B) that supplies for the hospital's new wing, which hospital administrators hope to be opened by the end of the year, be - Opened is a red flag after "be" form..

(C) that the hospital's new wing's supplies, which hospital administrators hope to be opened by year's end, might be- Misplaced Modifier modifying supplies instead of wing

(D) that supplies for the new wing of the hospital, which hospital administrators hope to be open by the end of the year, were - "were" is red flag due to tense problem

(E) that supplies for the hospital's new wing, which hospital administrators hope to open by the end of the year, be - It correctly uses modifier

So, E

That's because supplies for the hospital's new wing can't BE from local providers. You see the point?

OA is E.

But can someone please elaborate on what's wrong with B ?
It's a question from kaplan 800 and the explanation in the book is that E is better than B because "to open" is clearer and less wordy than the passive "to be opened".

-Vishal

"to open" and "to be opened" are distinct, in that the latter is wordy and tense structure is awkward.
