A fund dedicated to collecting reparations of Holocaust survivors in the German government is defrauded of more than $42 million over 16 years by a group that included six employees and custodians of the fund.

A. collecting reparations of Holocaust survivors in the German government is defrauded of more than $42 million over 16 years by a group that included --- survivors in the gov. doesn't make sense

B. the collection of reparations from Holocaust survivors from the German government had been defrauded of more than $42 million over 16 years by a group that included --- reparations from Holocaust survivors changes the meaning

C. collecting reparations for Holocaust survivors from among the German government was defrauded for greater than $42 million over 16 years by a group including --- among is used to relate more than two things

D. collecting reparations for Holocaust survivors from the German government was defrauded of as much as $42 million in 16 years by a group which included --- use of which is wrong also as much as $42M and in 16 years, change the meaning.

E. collecting reparations for Holocaust survivors from the German government was defrauded of more than $42 million over 16 years by a group that included


IMO E is correct

IN is used to show that after a time, action happen. so , "in" is not good in choice D
over is used to show a period . I think after "over", "a", or "the" should be used. in choice E, "over the 16 years" is better

E

A-->reparations of?
Should be reparations for

B--> collection is wrong.
Action word is used when the subject had an imposition of doing action

Secondly past perfect is non-sensical here as we don't have any other action in simple past.

Eg: I want to learn about adoption of dogs
( this means I want to learn but their is no implication that I will adopt one. )

I want to learn about adopting dogs.
( implication that I will adopt one)

C--> greater than is wrong
Fund cannot be greater than something.
It can only be more than something

( use greater than for only statistics - - > The height of Mt. Everest is greater than...)

D--->" Which " without a comma is wrong here. We are taking about a specific group so we need THAT here.

Secondly as much as $42 billion is wrong. It should be as MANY as $42 billion

Much-- uncountable noun
Many -- countable noun

Consider kudos if that helped.
