B. who major in such culturally-based fields of study as foreign languages and
international affairs are becoming more and more

C. who majored in culturally-based fields of study such as those of foreign
languages and international affairs are being increasingly "are being" is present tense, when intent is to show continued action into the future

D. who major in culturally-based fields of study like those of foreign languages
and international affairs have been becoming more and more Same as A

E. having majored in such culturally-based fields of study as foreign languages
and international affairs are being increasingly Same as C

Official Explanation

Answer B
- The major issue here is verb tense. The phrase "As business grows more international" describes a phenomenon that is leading to the phenomena described later in the sentence. Therefore, all of the ideas should be described using the same tense as the introductory phrase – present tense. A vertical scan allows us to eliminate choices (A) and (D) which both use present perfect tense for the idea of "becoming increasingly . . .", as well as (C), which uses the past tense "majored", and (E), which uses "having majored". (E) also uses the awkward "are being increasingly. That leaves (B), the correct answer.

Also note the choice of "like" versus "such as". "Like" should be used to introduce a comparison, while "such as" introduces examples. Here, the purpose is to introduce examples, so "such as" is correct. This realization would allow us to vertically scan and eliminate (A) and (D).
