Because the Supreme Court has ruled that the prosecution in a job discrimination case must prove not only that the employer lied about the reasons for dismissal but also that those reasons were discriminatory, plaintiffs in such cases fear that they will have no higher court that they can appeal to when their cases are decided in lower courts.

that they can appeal to when their cases are
to which to appeal after their cases have been
for appealing if their case has been
to which they can appeal if their case is
that their cases can appeal, if they have been

C and D are out because the earlier part of the sentence refers to cases NOT case

plaintiffs in such cases fear that they will have no higher court

E has a repetitive that in it - that has no correct reference
plaintiffs in such cases fear that they will have no higher court that their cases can appeal

A when their cases are is referring to specific point on time no time mentioned in the sentence

thats hovv i ruled these out

I've never seen the usage - to which to appeal , and in the context, it makes little sense to me.

I will go with A.

Best,

My take:
the subject 'plaintiffs' is plural and thus should have a plural (object? possessive?) cases, which eliminates C and D (which have the singular case).
[For example, you don't say the children's mother (unless they have the same mother), you say the children's mothers).

Then, E is eliminated since the cases don't appeal, the plaintiffs appeal.

Between A and B, A uses "when their cases are decided" and B uses "after their cases have been decided."
A uses the plain future, which simply indicates that something will occur and gives no indication of progression of events.
B correctly uses a future perfect, showing that this action will occur in the future and will be completed in the future. This, combined with 'after' shows the progression of events: cases decided -> maybe no court to appeal to.
I'm sure I explained that horribly..

An amazing question.

that they can appeal to when their cases are -context of the sentence suggests that they will fear if the cases are already decided-out

to which to appeal after their cases have been-no visible error.-hold it.

for appealing if their case has been-"cases" which is not underlined has become "case" also has been mathces with "case" and not "cases"-out

to which they can appeal if their case is-"if" is used only as a conditional clasue on GMAT.Also context of the sentence suggests that they will fear if the cases are already decided-out

that their cases can appeal, if they have been-"if" is used only as a conditional clasue on GMAT. "that their cases can appeal" suggets as if the cases will go and appeal.-out.

to which to appeal after their cases have been
for appealing if their case has been
to which they can appeal if their case is
that their cases can appeal, if they have been

This question mainly deals with the use of future tense in a series of actions.

The rule is that :

The Future tense is either followed by
1) Present Tense

Ex- She will pay you when you ask her.
The time of will pay = time of asking her

2) Present Perfect-

Ex- She will pay you when you have taken out the garbage.

The time of pay you is later than the future time of have taken.

In the given sentence 'plaintiffs in such cases fear that they will have no higher' occurs later than 'cases are decided in lower courts.' Thus 'cases are decided in the lower courts' needs present perfect tense.

Only B and E have present perfect tense. But E introduces another error, the statement 'that their cases can appeal' makes it sound that the 'cases' would appeal and not the plaintiffs.

Simple Approach

A. cases are decided - tense error
B No error
C "for appealing" and "if" unnecessary wordy and change meaning
D "if their case is" no need of If
E "they have been decided in lower courts" Change the meaning

so B is fine
