" he was suggested by " is passive structure and generally incorrect for GMAT.

When he was suggested by his guidance counselor, Brad applied to two Ivy League colleges and to the schools he knew would accept him.

If you read it for meaning it would mean that brad was suggested by his counselor. In other words, brad is a suggestion of his counselor.

I hope this helps.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



B changes the meaning in saying that Brad was suggested by his counselor. C and D imply that Brad is the suggestion. A is more efficient than E. Choice A is the correct answer.
