According to classical Marxism, the class struggle, caused by economic inequity, bringing about the universal workers’ revolution that would end history.

(A) struggle, caused by economic inequity, bringing about the universal workers’ revolution that would end history

(B) struggle, due to economic inequity, would bring about the universal workers’ revolution, thereby ending history

(C) struggle, which was brought about by economic inequity, causing the universal workers’ revolution that would end history

Perhaps you remember these topics from Econ 101. This sentence explores the "due to" structure and where it is or isn't allowed. For a detailed discussion, see:

(A) revolution that would end history is incorrect, keeping in mind the caused by used earlier in the sentence
(B) Seems good
(C) which was brought by - inappropriate
(D) we know that the class struggle was caused by economic inequality. This eliminates the usage of because of - incorrect
(E) workers' revolution and ending history - the whole event of ending history is incorrectly modified.

I would go with B

Not sure about this one.

If I remember correctly, can be checked by inserting the term "caused by" and "because of" cannot stand after a form of "to be"

A) verb is missing
B) seems good (right use of due to a after a noun)
C) verb is missing
D) because of error, as a form of be is infront of because of
E) due to seems good, but I have my doubt with logic here.

--> picked B

IMO :-B

A do not have verb for Class struggle.
B. No error
C:No verb for Class struggle; meaning distorted - class struggle was brought ( Simple past)
D: wordy and Class struggle would bring - require singular verb - end of history
E wrong modification : bringing about the universal workers’ revolution and ending history is modifying the verb.

Due to is used ONLY as an adjective..
Was due to is wrong.. as due to can not modify verb was.
B is apt and appropriate .

I chose B.

I don't believe (B) is correct.

the class struggle would bring ... "due to" economic inequality

GMATNinja can you shed some light on this one?
