hehe the original mistake in the sentence made me ROFL -- turning into a gmat geek. "The king and queen bombed out civilians" not really funny if you think about it... anywho

Going with E here is why:

rakeshjourno wrote:
During the war, the king and queen constantly visited factories and bombed out civilians.

a.bombed out civilians
not logically parallel: king visited and bombed civilians
b.they bombed the civilians out
same as A
c.civilians bombed out
doesn't make sense: king visited factories and civilians bombed out?
d.civilians who had bombed out
need "been" here
e.civilians who had been bombed out
parallel: king visited factories and civilians who had been bombed out (we need past participle here to show they civilians got injured before the king visited them

--

Ans ??

my question to you guys would be why exactly do we require "been" in E (what are the official rules)?

During the war, the king and queen constantly visited factories and [u]bombed out civilians.[/u]

bombed out civilians....[color=#8000BF]Structure is visited X and Y ...seems king and queen visited bombed out civilians - highly illogical and funny [/color]
they bombed the civilians out - [color=#8000BF]give a impression that king and queen bombed the civilian out -which is not the intent of origional sentense .[/color]
civilians bombed out - seems incomplete
civilians who had bombed out - [color=#8000BF]been is required with during .[/color]
civilians who had been bombed out - [color=#8000BF]Correct [/color]

OA Pls !!

from the original sentense, "bombed out" should be an adj to civilian, but since it can also interpret as they bombed civilian, it is ambiguous.

IMO, Answer should be E
