1. The new implementation for the plant will cost about 30 million dollars which it is hoped can be finished in the late 1990's

(A) The new implementation for the plant will cost about 30 million dollars which it is hoped can be finished in the late 1990's

(B) The new implementation for the plant, hopefully finished in the late 1990's, will cost about 30 million dollars.

(C) Implementing newly for the plant, hopefully to be finished in the late 1990's, will cost about 30 million dollars.

(D) The new implementation for the plant which can, it is hoped, be finished in the late 1990's and cost about 30 million dollars.

(E) Implementing newly for the plant, a program that can, it is hoped, be finished in the late 1990's will cost about 30 million dollars.

I thought answer is B, but OA is A. A has "it" which I think have no referal. Can anybody explain why A is an answer.

The new implementation,........................, which it is hoped can be finished in the late 1990's.

The only way I can see A to be correct is if I see the implementation as the subject of the sentence.

This does not look like a GMAT quality question. A is the only choice which comes close to making sense. However the WHICH in A seems to point to 30 million dollars whereas it should point to Implementation for it to make sense.

I am not convinced any of the choices are correct. Yet would have chosen A if forced to :-)

Totally agree with dwivedys...This is a really strange question...would have chosen A by POE...but as dwivedys said which cannot refer back to the plant clearly.

A is correct. 'Implementation can be finished' and that implementation will cost 30 million.

B - wrong tense. Plant is not finished yet.
C - wrong. 'Implementing newly for the plant' doesnt make sense
D - should have 'will cost'
E - wordy

Another Edit: in D can is placed at the wrong position. But I do agree that this doesnt seem like a GMAT question. A seems the best option here.

(A), as it is posted, is darn wrong.
It should be written in the following way (to make it grammatically correct) :

The new implementation for the plant, which, it is hoped, can be finished in the late 1990's, will cost about 30 million dollars.
