The sentence is not complete as is. It omits a verb for PAPERS.

Probably, it should be:

The papers in the National Archive, recounting the experiences of some 20,000 Black men, have been prepared to be published by the historian Ira Berlin.

I myself would vote for A.

Hi Stolyar
Sorry that I omit typing some words for confusing sentence with you.
Again, I hope to reply me why the correct answer is B.

:gl


there is anohter discussion going on why Nouns are preferred to Gerund and Verbs, but I can't really say why that is so.


I think that's just the "efficiency" and "style" that are give so much priority on the GMAT.

I vote for "B: for publication by"
coz, in this place, we need to explain the purpose of the papers. Thus, we should use for+Sth in order to do so.
c.f. to+V1 should be used in case of PERSON.

The phrase "the publication" does not sound proper as the sentence does not have any context of a known publication. You should use "the X" when you know what X refers to. The sentence talks about the papers that are going to be published, not referring to any specific publication.

Hm... I am a little lost after your comment; I may understand you wrong, but the sentece says that they were prepared for publication or to be published in other words. They were going to publish them.

hi

i agree with option B

"publication" is noun and "publishing" is a verb

"prepared for" is the idiomatic usage too
