Were needed means now we don't need to. Using simple past and past perfect is not sensical in this context. Eliminate A, B, D

Between C and E, it is much clear to say - - > male dominated police force THAN police force that is male-dominated

Imho, answer is C

Hey carcass

I was able to narrow down the answer choices to C and E. but couldn't move forward.
"male-dominated police force" & "police force that is male-dominated."
They essentially mean the same according to me, but I was never comfortable on eliminating ans choices on the basis of "wordiness"
Can you suggest any article that could perhaps give me an essence of wordiness and help me eliminate such answer choices.

Decision point is to make not in making.

B and D out.

E is wordy.

A nd C have been needed is the correct form.

C is the answer.

30 seconds approach.

Regards

Developing a sense, a sort of six sense to the wordiness is something that comes you with the experience and years of English. Is not that comes out in a snap

C. have been needed to make woman police officers more than a rarity in the male-dominated police force



E. have been needed to make woman police officers more than a rarity in the police force that is male-dominated.

Seein this way I do think is quite clear where the wordiness lays.

Yes, it was quite evident on this problem, but in some problems, there is a change in sentence structure which confuses me !
