B..

Would is compulsory here.Future from the point of view of past tense verb OPINED entails the use of would.

IMO B

The expectations of Yankee fans were set before they opined. So a past perfect tense is required for expectations. Eliminate options D and E.

In options A, B and C, only option B makes it parallel with the usage of that - the Yankee fans opined that the media was harsher on the team than the fans had expected and that their team would once again be among the best in baseball.

Official Explanation:


A. "expected it to" is incorrect. "they" has no clear reference. "that" is missing before "they will once again be...". "would" is more appropriate than "will" for this context as "will" indicates surety; the fans are only expressing an opinion.

B. Correct - Past perfect tense is appropriate here as there are two actions in the past. "opined that the media was..." and "that their team would.." are parallel. Use of the term "their team" removes pronoun ambiguity. "would" is appropriate.

C. Wordy in "expected it would". "that" is missing before "their team will once again be...". "would" is more appropriate than "will" for this context.

D. "expected" is not the correct tense. "that" is missing before "their team will once again be...". "would" is more appropriate than "will" for this context.

E. "expected" is not the correct tense. "would" is more appropriate than "will" for this context.
