As far as I know, hopefully is almost always wrong on GMAT. This reduces the optiond down to B & E. And clearly the answer is B, IMO

Where did you guys get that "hopefully" is almost always wrong in the GMAT? I'd like to know the source. Thanks for letting me know.

Is there any justification of the usage of "in the way" ? Any other example of the usage from OG or other reliable source...

Getting defeated is just a temporary notion, giving it up is what makes it permanent.

Press +1 Kudos, if you think my post gave u a tiny tip.

The concept that hopefully is always/almost always wrong is incorrect. In this question we got rid of options containing hopefully because those sentences also used "will" along with hopefully. Now its not possible that one thing is sure to happen as well as hopefully to happen.
I guess I made myself clear.
