Let me try..

IMO C.

It was b/w A&C.
B -out as "unqualifying" sounds awkward...A out for the same reason.
D&E -out as "consistent and unqualified" is wrong..
C -perfect.

Indeed, I did not know unqualifying was illegible word - really so, you wouldn't find it in any decent dictionary. For me sounded O'K as i am non-native (picked A during my practice test yesterday )

‘Unqualifying’ means undeserving or without qualifications; ‘unqualified’ means absolute and full. Both are usable in their own contexts. But here ‘unqualifying’ doesn’t fit in. So A and B are out.

By labor’ is unidiomatic; the correct idiom is either ‘from labor’ or ‘of labor’ D and E are out. C is left.

The three women , is plural so if you remove the supporting clause , you will need a verb which correctly refers to them in the context.
have does that better than are , since sighting a sure event (past or present ) is better than present continuous.

Thus we are left with A and C , Between these 2 unqualified support of labor is correct . Plus i dont think unqualifying is a correct usage

Hallo Daagh,

There is no doubt that the right answer is C in this case but tell me whether the following sentence is wrong?

"Express Entry candidates who have a job offer supported by a Labor Market Assessment."

We read "supported by" on too many news paper articles.Are you saying they are wrong in most of the occasions??

"Labour" is not the point here. "Support" is the point.

"Support" as a noun takes "of" or "from", whereas "support" as a passive verb (or a participle) takes "by" (any transitive passive verb takes "by").

Correct: I have the support of / from Labour Union.
Correct: I am supported by Labour Union.
Wrong: I have the support by Labour Union.
Wrong: I am supported of / from Labour Union.
