We need a "that" in the beginning of the sentence- eliminate B,D

+1 E

We require a) that to introduce the belief b) a ‘but’ to mark the transition and 3) ‘few actions’ to define a count and plural noun ‘actions ‘, all which are found in E only.

"believe that" idiom - keep a, c and e

Use "but" as it creates a better contrast than "and" does - keep a and e

The number of actions is countable therefore use few - the answer is e

“actions" is countable noun, use few. B, C out
"believe that", D out
because of the transition in sentence, choose E

A majority of executives believe (clause) that gender diversity in leadership is linked to better (clause)
financial performance and companies take few actions to support women in the
workforce.(clause)

Contrast is missing. As per the sentence although the executives believe that gender diversity is import , they take few actions to address it.

one grammatical error of the sentence is two Independent clauses have been joined with out , + and

, + "but" will give the contrast and as well add independent clause in the sentence .

few is correct , as actions is countable noun.

A majority is plural so "believe" is correct verb form.

Only answer choice E correct all those error.

E.

B and D can be ruled out because they do not use 'that'
Betwen A , C and E

A - Does not gives us comparison
C - Little actions do not make sense

So, E it is
