When the first nuclear device was detonated in the desert of New Mexico, a new military era can be said to have begun as both the physical power of the atom and the psychological power of deterrence take their places in the world arsenal.
(A) as both the physical power of the atom and the psychological power of deterrence take their places in the world arsenal
(B) as both the physical power of the atom and the psychological power of deterrence took their places in the world arsenal
(C) as the physical power of the atom and the psychological power of deterrence both take their place in the world arsenal
(D) as a result of the fact that both the physical power of the atom and the psychological power of deterrence took their respective places in the world arsenal
(E) as a consequence of the fact that both the physical power of the atom and the psychological power of deterrence take their places in the world arsenal

When you scan the answer choices, you can see that
the phrases “as a result of the fact” in (D) and “as a
consequence of the fact” in (E) are unnecessary: eliminate
the two longest answer choices. Since the sentence
describes events that took place in the past,
“take” in (A) and (C) is wrong; “took” in (B) is right.
