A)had predicted them to and its performance will improve. Pronoun error.
B)had predicted and that its performance would improve. Correct choice. usage of would is correct here.
C)predicted they would and that it will improve its performance. Perfect tense required, since prediction was before announcement.
D)predicted them to and its performance would improve. Tense error
E)predicted and that it will have improved its performance. Tense error


The correct answer is B. Usage of would in past tense is correct. And predicted here needs to be in perfect tense to clarify the correct chronology.

The first half ,Non underlined portion : Announced THAT its.......

In the underlined portion, there's a AND : a Parallelism marker

First split : we will skim through options for : THAT........AND.......THAT Parallelism

Vertical scan reveals : Only B ,C n E to follow suit

C / E : THAT ITS..........AND...........THAT IT : Eliminated

B : THAT ITS..........AND............THAT ITS : Perfect Parallelism

Leading to B, my take

B is the answer.
It uses correct tense and would instead of will.

I agree B is perfect.
Usage of past perfect tense is also another reason.

'B' is correct,
I have chosen answer as 'D'
but i read in Aristotle SC prep that its
"past perfect + would have"
and "simple past + would"
then how 'B' is correct?

"had" needs to be used as sequencing of events is required and "would" needs to be used as it is of subjunctive mood. "will" can be used when you are sure of things.
