Hi all
My reasoning: 'with' needs to follow credit, therefore B and E remain
B wordy and uses having
Thus E is the correct answer

Thank you PiyushK

I am not in favor of any specific choice, because source of this problem is showing OA as E. That is why I want to have some discussion on this problem further.
I want to know the difference between OG problem and this problem ? or the OA is not right ?

Isn't SC all about one sentence ? I can see two sentences in the question stem

This question is not an official Q. Thus, just ignore that part. But what it is testing is matching to one OG problem, still its answer is different. Hence, we need a discussion on this whether this problem is flawed or it is testing some important bifurcation.

After reading the Egyptians example, I also feel that B seems more correct. Can you let me know what is the source of this question?

Shouldn't the answer be option B. Here is how i came to that conclusion. The present perfect tense is used for actions that started in the past but continue into the present, or its effect is still relevant to the present moment, which is the case with our sentence. So i think B "having propelled" should be the answer. Can any of the experts please clarify?

Credit with is the right idiom...you credited xyz with developing new series of smartphones...it means you are giving credit to someone/something. here historians are crediting new deal and world war II with propelling america out of depression. Hope this is clear.
For this reason A, C and D are out
B with "having" propelled...this having is wrong
E it is

Idiomatically, crediting with is better choice than crediting for -remove option A, C, D .
Between B and E, having propelled doesn't make sense ( passive voice when clause is active toned, wordy and too many words).
E is correct.

I read an E-Gmat article saying that you credit someone “for” something. How is the answer possibly idiomatic?

This post doesn’t clarify my confusion. If “for” is used for acknowledgment, then how would that not be appropriate for this question? Is there a better example for “credit with” aside from financial transactions?

A. for propelling
B. with having propelled
C. as propelling
D. to propelling
E. with propelling

OFFICIAL EXPLANATION

The current sentence uses the incorrect idiom to credit x ... for y. The correct idiom is to credit x ... with y

A. to credit x ... for y is not the correct idiom
B. having propelled is not the proper verb tense and should be replaced with propelling
C. to credit x ... as y is not the correct idiom
D. to credit x ... to y is not the correct idiom
E. to credit x ... with y is the correct idiom; propelling instead of having propelled is also correct
