MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The expression ‘developed after when’ is incorrect. ‘Developed after’ is sufficient. Eliminate A. Choice C unnecessarily repeats ‘foreign speculators’. Choice D has the wrong tense. The sentence is in past tense, not present. ‘Developed after there being’ in E is also incorrect. Choice B is the correct answer.
