Possesive Noun is incorrect after the modifier
->C,D,E are out

Between A and B, A wins.
"acclaim as" is the correct idiom.

Is "acclaimed to be" not idiomatic?


Yes "acclaimed to be" is an idiom. Do a google search and you will see the context it is used in.

For this particular SC "acclaim as" suits well.

"acclaimes to be" sounds as if Martha Graham is claiming to be a great dancer. "acclamation" is won from others. My two cents :)

acclaim is not the same as claim.

B is wrong because TO BE is passive and the correct GMATland idiom is acclaim as.

GMAT grammar is the not same as Standard Written English.

A for me too.

Please post OA. The correct idiom for Acclaim is 'as' hence straight B and D are out. We need the noun standing so the beginning of the sentence can relate to Martha Graham.
