I narrowed down to D and E, but marked E. what is wrong with 'even' in E

Thanks,
sahil



Its not E because the word 'even' changes the meaning of the sentence.

controversy and ire are aroused only if he had not projected such a genial, middle-of-the-road persona
It does not say that: Even if he had not projected such a genial, middle-of-the-road persona, it arouses controversy and ire.

Hope that makes sense

My quick explanation

Though generally regarded as a fairly undramatic, even bland chief executive, many of President Eisenhower's assertions, such as his warning about a military-industrial complex, might have aroused controversy and ire if he had not projected such a genial, middle-of-the-road persona.

(A) many of President Eisenhower’s assertions, such as his warning about a military-industrial complex, might have aroused controversy and ire
his is referring to President Eisenhower’s - possessive case is not a good antecedent
(B) many of President Eisenhower’s assertions, such as when he warned about a military-industrial complex, might have aroused controversy and ire
he is referring to President Eisenhower’s - possessive case is not a good antecedent
(C) it might have aroused controversy and ire, such as his warning about a military-industrial complex, when President Eisenhower made assertions
it - no antecedent
(D) President Eisenhower made many assertions, such as his warning about a military-industrial complex, that might have aroused controversy and ire
his is correctly referring to President Eisenhower - not in possessive case
(E) President Eisenhower made many assertions, such as his warning about a military-industrial complex, that might have aroused controversy and ire even
even sounds odd when compared with D

The answer is D.
Modifiers are placed correctly. Also, it is clear and unambiguous.

Agree with sahil...also want to point out that "although" is used and then using "even" is wrong to close the sentence....i.e. two changers... "E" is out
