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.

(B) has recently been attacked as dated and culturally biased and is finally being revised

OA :
[Reveal] Spoiler:
B

OE :
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Listen for things that sound funny in the original sentence,
and find the choice that’s most precise. In (A),
“attacks recently” is illogical and awkward-sounding.
The test isn’t under revision “FOR receiving attack,”
in (C). It’s under revision AFTER receiving attack. In
(D), it seems as though the attack happens before and
after the revision. In (E), it’s not clear that it’s the test
that’s being attacked. (B) makes the sequence of
events clear: the test has recently been attacked and is
finally being revised.

Hints:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Following has been tested:
b. Change of meaning / Unclear Meaning.
c. Object of the action
d. Modifier

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.
(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 parallel problem with ands so NO.
(C) is finally under revision for receiving much recent attack as dated and culturally biased It should be attacks and not sure if much is the right word there
(D) was finally revised recently because it is being attacked as dated and culturally biased being sounds it is still being attacked after revision.. tense problem
(E) is finally to be revised after recent attacks as dated and culturally biased

I think A is the best choice....

hmmm ... now im confsued between A and B

I guess I change my answer to B now

A has "attacks recently" which makes it wrong

So B is the answer for me

for B to work dont we need to take out "and" in the last part of
"has recently been attacked as dated and culturally biased and is finally being revised" ? Doesnt that with and seem like it is still in the list of attacks? If we take out the and it is correct? Well I am sticking with A.....

why are the 2 "ands" not breaking the parallel? I thought they all have to be parallel?

by POE, I choose B.
But somehow I didn't like use of "and" in option B. By use of "and" it seems these are two unrelated phrases. But actually I think the intended meaning was that the "revision" happened due to "attacks"

(A) is finally being revised, after many attacks recently as dated and culturally biased -Incorrect modifier. "as dated and culturally biased" sounds to modify "attacks"
(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 -Incorrect use of Much. As attacks are countable, it should be replaced with "Many". If author intended to modify "recent" instead then a use of adverb "very" would have been meaningful.
(D) was finally revised recently because it is being attacked as dated and culturally biased -Tense problem. Attacks must have happened before revision.
(E) is finally to be revised after recent attacks as dated and culturally biased -Change of meaning. It sounds revision is yet to be implemented
