(A) The modernization program for the steel mill will cost approximately 51 million dollars, which it is hoped can be completed in the late 1980’s.

Wrong usage of which

(B) The modernization program for the steel mill, hopefully completed in the late 1980’s, will cost approximately 51 million dollars.

Hopefully is not preferred on GMAT. Also, If we are talking about a program that is completed, no need for approximation. hopefully completed and will cost do not go together to give a meaningful sentence.

(C) Modernizing the steel mill, hopefully to be completed in the late 1980’s, will cost approximately 51 million dollars.

Hopefully is not preferred on GMAT

(D) The program for modernizing the steel mill, which can, it is hoped, be completed in the late 1980’s and cost approximately 51 million dollars.

Incorrect reference of which and if you take out the 2 dependent clauses, the sentence does not read fully.

(E) Modernizing the steel mill, a program that can, it is hoped, be completed in the late 1980’s, will cost approximately 51 million dollars.


E is correct. uses it is hoped

This sentence renders a lot of ambiguity. We are talking about a past event but expressed in future tense. I know, but I guess this sentence is a lift off from some book/paper of 1980's. So we have to pretend as if we were reading this sentence in late 70's or early 80's.
