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:

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?
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.
