A is my final choice

Two week notice being given to employers before leaving a job is the generally accepted protocol.


in blue is the subject - red is a gerund phrase and the rest is verb and predicate

It is unnecessary to use a gerund phrase to begin the sentence as in D

D doesn't improve the original, so A should be correct.

I think if D and A were reversed, D would be the correct choice.

I've never come across any correct answer choice containing the word "being", so A cannot be the answer.

OA please ???

Hmmm I can't see why D is wrong. A cann't be right for the passive voice. B is just too cubernsome and unclear. C is almost the second best to D, I think. E is again cubernsome, in my opinion, with the use of "having to leave" instead of "leaving", and "two weeks worth of" doesn't seem to be right either.

I really want to pick D, if not then C.
