"stronly support" agrees with "receive".
Not entirely sure about the idiom "support by" Vs "support of" though.

D.

B. its between B and E but E changes meaning as consistent and unqualified donot go hand in hand with support.

consistant support and unqualified support - quite contradicting

so should be B.

Go for C. In A - unqualifying support changes the meaning. B - present progressive are receiving is not required.

I think the answer is (A)

should be "the labor"

anothe reason for A is that "unqualifying" modifies support...thats what we are trying to convey..

in C unqualified seems to modify labor..

Okay D and E are for using 'support by' (unidiomatic).
C... it should be 'unqualfying support 'from' labor instead of 'of' labor. Out.
now it is between A and B

I have a gut feeling that it is A cause I am not sure why the use of Present continues tense in B isn't right ( please explain).

The OA given for this one is C
I just don't understand why?
I picked A for this one.

I guess A is wrong because "labor’s unqualifying support " should be "labor’s unqualified support "

unqualified ( adj ) should modifies 'support'( noun)

C correctly does that

I think "the" is not wrong in C - "the" unqualified support...

will go for C..
A says labor's unqualifying support which means d suport is not qualified(wen compared to other types of support) n thus it changes d meaning while C correctly says unqualified support of the labor
