B is wrong because we do not what allowing mofidies. Launders or globalization. Moreover, we need to tell the reason why The globalization of financial-services companies has been a boon to money launders and it can only be achieved best by a seperate clause...


E fits it well.

E make sense. the strucutre is:

Because + Clause
Because of + Noun Phrase

so A and B donot agree with any of the above structures. only C,D and E meet the first structure. C and D, both, are ungramatical.

It cannot refer to money launderers who are plural, globalization is the only singular noun in the sentence...so i will stick to E

B changed the original meaning of the sentence. I will vote for E as well.

"because" is a conjunction and should be followed by a clause. B has a participial phrase with no verb. Hence, only E is left.

E

A, B out -> because of
C out -> the structre problem
D out -> 'have been placed' is problematic

B is a "because of" construction, not a "because" one, so since it has no verb, it could actually be correct.
please clarify.

The tense form of underlined sentence is - present perfect - has been. Hence the tense form in underlined word should be - simple present.

From this you can remove answer choices A and B, left with C, D and E. C is awkward and confusing. D has wrong tense form - have been. E meets all the requirements.

Hence the correct answer choice is E.


A. of allowing money placed in a bank in a less regulated jurisdiction to be transferred

B. of allowing the transfer of money placed in a bank in a less regulated jurisdiction
C. it allows that money placed in a bank in a less regulated jurisdiction is transferred
D. it allows the transfer of money have been placed in a bank in a less regulated
jurisdiction
E. it allows money placed in a bank in a less regulated jurisdiction to be transferred

Per my understanding, "It" refers to "Globalization"...So "Globalization allows money placed in a ......."

B is wrong. Reason is the distinction between "Because of" vs "Because"......"Because of" is a prepositional phrase and must always be followed by a noun or a noun phrase and not a clause. "Because" is followed by a clause. Option B violates this rule.

It refers to globalization and we need subjunctive.. C (That + is) and D ( tense issue have been) does this incorrectly.

E is best!
