so....that is an idiom. A uses the idiom correctly.

so abundant...that is the correct usage. The use of so 2 times makes B incorrect.

There you go. My 2 cents for what its worth...

D is passive so that why I think it may not be the answer.

"Such" can neither modify "has" nor be a subject here.

this is a case of inversion. therefore A is correct. C is missing that.

I only know this as inversion but do not know why and when we use inversion?

Guys, I am still trying to understand the better one of the two answers : (A) and (D). Please explain.
PS: For relevance, both "So" and "Such" use the so called "inversion". So how can we eliminate one and not the other?

i agree.

amazing how much my grammar has changed in one month.
the thing that threw me off was the subject- verb - auxiliary verb inversion INSIDE of an idiom.

non inverted sentence
capital (for the commercial real estate) has been so abundant that

inverted sentence
so abundant has capital been (for commercial real estate) that

Sentence after the semicolon needs to be independent ?

Not sure, if any one can elaborate from this point will be great

An array of tax incentives has led to a boom in the construction of new office buildings; so abundant has capital been for commercial real estate that investors regularly scour the country for areas in which to build.
(A) so abundant has capital been for commercial real estate that
(B) capital has been so abundant for commercial real estate, so that
(C) the abundance of capital for commercial real estate has been such,
(D) such has the abundance of capital been for commercial real estate that
(E) such has been an abundance of capital for commercial real estate,

Easy question - A.
1) Correct usage of idiom + inversion is also correctly used.
2) two "so" - incorrect
3) there is no such idiom as "such that" + we do not need comma after such
4) no such that and moreover, such cannot have anything
5)such has been an abundance of capital - such cannot be an abundance...

bw A and D,

lets think about non-inverted versions of those two;

A- capital has been so abundant
D- abundance of the capital has been

clearly A is better and more concise. Hope this helps.
