The Commerce Department announced that the economy grew during the second quarter at a 7.5 percent annual rate, while inflation eased when it might have been expected for it to rise.
(A) it might have been expected for it to rise
(B) it might have been expected to rise
(C) it might have been expected that it should rise
(D) its rise might have been expected
(E) there might have been an expectation it would rise
The OA/OE beats me
(A) it might have been expected for it
to rise==>2 times use of IT makes it redundant.
(B) it might have been expected to rise==>this one CORRECT
(C) it might have been expected that it
should rise===>REDUNDANT AND WORDY
(D) its rise might have been expected==>its not parallel...as we are talking about INFLATION so it's most logically parallel to continue the sentence in a manner that continues to address 'inflation' itself (or the equivalent pronoun 'it')==>this choice unnecessarily switches the subject to 'its rise', creating a nonparallel construction
might have been an expectation it
==> ==>no reference for THERE///WORDY AND REDUNDANT.
