To follow it with "it took..." means that the first phrase wasn't completed. I looked at the original post - the C option says "on the canal, the move" and this makes it correct. Plus C avoided pronoun use which makes it unambiguous.

Hi, It would be great if you could write the question before you wrote the answer and your take on it. its kinda difficult to give the question a fair attempt when the first line in the post reveals the answer ....

its just a request....

Request you not to write your queries/answers/opinions in question window. It prevents ppl from analysing the question. The whole purpose of GMAT Club forum goes wasted by doing so.

You have response windows to do all such things.

Thanks. Formatted the question. Feel free to suggest 'tags' for the question especially (not just for this forum but for all applicable),

1. Apparent level of difficulty
2. Sub category/-ies
3. Question source
