Twenty-five years ago in this month, Camp David became the setting for an unprecedented episode of American diplomacyâ€”and entered the lexicon as a near synonym for high-level peacemakingâ€”when Jimmy Carter, Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian president Anwar El-Sadat gathered there for a tense and grueling 13 days.

A. Twenty-five years ago in this month,
B. Twenty-five years ago this month,
C. In this month, twenty-five years previously,
D. In this month, twenty-five years previous,
E. It was twenty-five years ago to this month,

I say B...

A. Twenty-five years ago in this month,
B. Twenty-five years ago this month,
C. In this month, twenty-five years previously,
D. In this month, twenty-five years previous,
E. It was twenty-five years ago to this month,

By ear... we don't say "in this month"... we might say "in the month of May", but since there is no 'clear' month I wouldn't choose A C D

"to this month" means "to the beginning of this month", so don't think that's correct

Yes B seems the best.

A. Twenty-five years ago in this month,
B. Twenty-five years ago this month, --->Most concise and clear.
C. In this month, twenty-five years previously, --->doesn't sound good
D. In this month, twenty-five years previous, --->same as C.
E. It was twenty-five years ago to this month, --->should have been followed by that and not a comma.

I will go with B.

When you can't point out the gramatical mistake between two choices then I would suggest to choose the shorter one.

B. Twenty-five years ago this month,
C. In this month, twenty-five years previously,
D. In this month, twenty-five years previous,
E. It was twenty-five years ago to this month,

"......years ago this month" is correct.

So B.

OE is a bit terse.

The best answer is B. Choice B is idiomatic and precise.

Yeah I agree on B
'Twenty-five years ago in this month' doesn't look clear.
I think it should be, rather, 'In twenty five years ago this month', though I'm not sure it's correct or not.
