The task force is reviewing the company’s hiring practices for the determination of whether they are meeting the requirements set by the Office of Equal Opportunity.

(A) for the determination of whether they are meeting the requirements set by the Office of Equal Opportunity
(B) for the determining of whether or not it meets the requirement set by the Office of Equal Opportunity
(C) for the determining of whether the requirements set by the Office of Equal Opportunity are being met or not
(D) determining whether the requirements set by the Office of Equal Opportunity are met
(E) to determine whether they meet the requirements set by the Office of Equal Opportunity


My take:

A: reviewing for the determination is wordy; they has no antecedent
B: reviewing for the determining is wordy; whether or not is redundant; it has no clear antecedent
C: reviewing for the determining is wordy; whether are being met or not is awkward and redundant
D: correct
E: they has no antecedent

The answer should be E. You need "to determine" and the "they" refers to "practices"

Should be (E)

The task force is reviewing the company’s hiring practices for the determination of whether they are meeting the requirements set by the Office of Equal Opportunity.

(A) for the determination of whether they are meeting the requirements set by the Office of Equal Opportunity - 'for the determination' is incorrect usage

(B) for the determining of whether or not it meets the requirement set by the Office of Equal Opportunity - 'for the determining' is incorrect usage. 'it' is singular whereas 'company’s hiring practices' is plural

(C) for the determining of whether the requirements set by the Office of Equal Opportunity are being met or not - 'for the determining' is incorrect usage. 'being' is almost always wrong in GMAT

(D) determining whether the requirements set by the Office of Equal Opportunity are met - 'determining' is incorrect usage

(E) to determine whether they meet the requirements set by the Office of Equal Opportunity - 'to determine' is the correct usage. 'they' correctly refers to 'company’s hiring practices '

OA - E - To determine is the correct idiom
A, B, C - incorrect - weird construction and unidiomatic determining of

B, C - incorrect - redundant whether or not

D - incorrect - company's hiring practices determining - changes the meaning

IMO E.

"whether or not" is incorrect - A D E left
to indicate a purpose of an action, we use "to infinitive". Hence, E
