B for me :

A. that since sales of up to one-fourth of its stores
are poor, they will be closed.
B. it is closing up to one-fourth of its stores, which
accounted for its poor sales
C. it was closing up to one fourth of its stores
because of poor sales -- changing the meaning of the sentence
D. to be closing, on account of poor sales, up to
one-fourth of its stores. -- awkward construction
D. having poor sales, such that up to one-fourth of
its stores will be closed. -- Meaning distorted

C seems to be a better choice though I feel announced should be followed by that. But it is only in option A which has its own errors.

IMO A. "they" in A clearly refers to stores as it cannot refer to sales.

B & C have pronoung error - "it" ---> can refer to Record Town, Saturday Matinee or Trans World Entertainment Corporation

tough one..!

A is Wrong because "Since" is a time based word it doesn't mean "becuase"..!

i would go with E, because C requires "that" after announced..!

Yep, C it is.. Glad to have come out on the right side on this tough one.

Before Arorag posts the OA, I went checking to confirm my choice is correct and found this.
