A. until almost 1900, historians did not begins seriously to research
B. until almost 1900 historians had not begun seriously researching
C. not until almost 1900 were historians to begin seriously to research
D. it was not almost until 1900 when historians began to seriously research
E. it was not until almost 1900 that historians began to seriously research

OA: After some discussion


I'm going with E.

A. until almost 1900, historians did not begins seriously to research - don't think "until almost" parallels "Even though", and begins is wrong
B. until almost 1900 historians had not begun seriously researching - "begun seriously researching" is wrong, I think it should be "began to seriously research" given the tense of the sentence that follows
C. not until almost 1900 were historians to begin seriously to research - "begin seriously to research" is wrong
D. it was not almost until 1900 when historians began to seriously research - "almost until 1900" is illogical in this sentence, it should be "until almost 1900"
E. it was not until almost 1900 that historians began to seriously research - correct

What's the OA?

Hello from the GMAT Club VerbalBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).
