Can anyone explain why B is correct answer. There is no relationship between "has been attacked" and "being revised".

Hi ranjeet75,

Imo

Let's restate B :
The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, a test developed in the 1930s to assess character, attitudes, and behavior, has recently been attacked as dated and culturally biased and is finally being revised.

The use of present perfect for has been attacked here is Correct :This is an action happened at an unspecified time before now regardind the sense of the phrase

From the original sentence : The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, a test developed in the 1930s to assess character, attitudes, and behavior, is finally being revised, after many attacks recently as dated and culturally biased.

is finally being revised is correct also because maybe the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory is currently under revision ( we don't know if this action happened and ended in the past or no )

(A) is finally being revised, after many attacks
recently as dated and culturally biased
(B) has recently been attacked as dated and
culturally biased and is finally being
revised
(C) is finally under revision for receiving much
recent attack as dated and culturally
biased
(D) was finally revised recently because it is
being attacked as dated and culturally
biased
(E) is finally to be revised after recent attacks
as dated and culturally biased


Basically the meaning suggests us because the test is old and no longer update is attacked

A is incoorect because suggests that the test was revise due to the attack

C for receiving much recent attack is wrong for similar reason

D was finally revised recently is a situation that is in course of action instead was suggestssomething that is completely gone, passed away

E is finally to be is ackward

B states something that is happened and now an action in course. basically B use two correct time frame thanks to the verbe usage

Sorry doesnt B change the meaning of the sentence. The test could be changed because of the attack.

analogy :

for yrs,men were allowed to wear shorts during corporate meetings............recently, there was a hue n cry, office decorum was coming @ stake..............the HR is pouring in thoughts to curb this existing norm.

How do we rephrase in gmat terms :

1. the policy on men attire has been attacked recently

2. The policy on men attire is being revised

net : the policy has been attacked recently.....AND......(THUS) is being revised : parallelism also intact, however a thus would have been much better in conveying the cause effect relationship

my thoughts, leading to B
