I think the underlined statement is till 'as it was'.

Now the options. D and E can be ruled out as there is a parallelism problem. 'First...and later...' is the correct form.

Between A, B and C. I think B is correct.

A. later in the United States House of Representatives, not until Barbara Jordan’s
participation in the hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon in
1974 was she made a nationally recognized figure, as it was. Incorrect. Problem with parallelism.

B. later in the United States House of Representatives, Barbara Jordan did not
become a nationally recognized figure until 1974, when she participated in the
hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, which were. Correct. “–hearings-which were”

C. later in the United States House of Representatives, it was not until 1974 that
Barbara Jordan became a nationally recognized figure, with her participation in
the hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, which was. Incorrect. “–hearings-which was”

1) Modification: The opening phrase clearly describes a person, so the person should be placed right after that first comma. Eliminate A, C and D.

2) Verbs: In answers B and E, the last word is either "were" or "was", so we need to know the noun that "controls" this verb. Working back into the sentence, you'll find the noun "hearings"….so we need the verb "were." Eliminate E.

Final Answer:B

Look at the verb after ‘which’; it is plural and hence what it represents should be a plural word. There are only two plural words namely Representatives and hearings in the entire passage. Obviously, 'which' cannot refer to representatives (human beings). Therefore, it should be only the hearings. The relative pronoun and noun relationship is quite clear. The hearings were indeed televised.

B.
D and E were not correct because later and then are redundant.
televised world is saying describing the headings so can not be ''it'' and ''was''

D and E also have "and also" redundancy error. Hence, incorrect.

(A) later in the United States House of Representatives, not until Barbara Jordan’s participation in the hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon in 1974 was she made a nationally recognized figure, as it was

(B) later in the United States House of Representatives, Barbara Jordan did not become a nationally recognized figure until 1974, when she participated in the hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, which were

(C) later in the Untied States House of Representatives, it was not until 1974 that Barbara Jordan became a nationally recognized figure, with her participation in the hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, which was

(E) then also later in the United States House of Representatives, Barbara Jordan did not become a nationally recognized figure until 1974, when she participated in the hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, which was


Answer is B

POE
A - "It" erroneously refers to "participation " ,,, whereas not the participation but the hearings were televised.
C- a phrase with + noun phrases can't be used to describe an action.
D- Using then .... later in same clause is redundant.
