Under a provision of the Constitution that was never applied, Congress has been required to call a convention for considering possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do it by the legislatures of two-thirds of the states.


(A) was never applied, Congress has been required to call a convention for considering possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do it

(B) was never applied, there has been a requirement that Congress call a convention for consideration of possible amendments to the document when asked to do it formally

(C) was never applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention for considering possible amendments to the document when asked to do it formally

(D) has never been applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention to consider possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do so

(E) has never been applied, Congress is required to call a convention to consider possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do so

I got the answer right, but I want to be sure the logic behind getting to the answer is right- laws,provisions and other universal truths are all present perfect and thus I opted for -has never been(E), D was ruled out as "whereby" suggests the provision not being used requires congress to require a call - is this correct?

Please let me know your feedback.

regards,
Prasanna

I would go with E

A-C sound akward, and D doesn't flow right

do it is always wrong – requires to do so – eliminate A, B and C

(A) was never applied, Congress has been required to call a convention for considering possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do it

(B) was never applied, there has been a requirement that Congress call a convention for consideration of possible amendments to the document when asked to do it formally

(C) was never applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention for considering possible amendments to the document when asked to do it formally

(D) has never been applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention to consider possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do so [Whereby = by means of which – implies provision of constitution that was never applied, by means of which congress … - changing the meaning of the sentence – eliminate it]

(E) has never been applied, Congress is required to call a convention to consider possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do so
