A....
Chose this over B because it's always good to negate "it, it's, they etc" when possible

onln in B...correct modifying phrase...modifying W.E.B.....


OA is A.

PS: what does IMO mean? i see that in every post!


I think OA...is wrong..it is 1000 SC...question??
Search the question on google....u may find discussion on other forums also...I still maintain it is modifier problem here...
Moreover "At the invitation of Kwame Nkrumah," seems prepositonal phrase.....and prepositional phrases don't modify..noun..have to chk this...



Prepositional phrase modifies both noun and verb. :)

The term when is used as a subordinate conjunction is to denote a narrow, restricted time frame. Here B means to say that W. E. B. Du Bois recated the moment he was invited by Nkrumah. The essence of the matter is that Bois decided to settle in Ghana because he had to oblige Nkrumah. Viewed from that angle, when becomes off mark. That is why A is a better choice.

is invitation from grammatically acceptable

I think the answer should be E

A is not the answer for the meaning. Plausible ans B & E.

But E is rather simplified and meaningful in this case.

C, D and E is completely wrong.

Now race is between A and B.
Lets take B first,
When he was invited by X, Y settled...and became....
At first, use of passive voice which is not preferred.
Second, use of when is used for particular time frame but no such time frame is indicated by action.
B is out.

Compared to B, A is precise and clear in meaning, at the invitation of X, Y settled.....

A is correct.

Some one provide the official answer for this question. I chose A by recalling the idiom 'At the invitation' from the Flash cards on GMAT Toolkit app.
