I would go with D

A B C seem to have pronoun errors..

D seems the most logical one.

what's the OA?

an economy made overpro-
ductive by advances in technology.

(A) believing it a seeming permanent accommoda-
tion rather than a temporary expedient for
what many observers thought was - Two Problems - Believe something to be or Believe that is the correct idiom. And Seeming verbal form isn't correct. Seemingly is the adverb to be used.Seemingly modifies Adjective Premanent which inturn modifies Noun accomodation .
Adverb + Adjective + Noun is correct usage here as per author's sense.

(B) believing it a seeming permanent accommoda-
tion instead of a temporary expedient for
what many observers thought was - Same reason as above. Moreover, rather than is preferred in GMAT.

(C) believing that it was not a temporary expedient
but a seeming permanent accommodation to
what many observers thought of as a - Tense issue. Past tense not required.

(D) not as a temporary expedient but as a seem-
ingly [/color]permanent accommodation to what
many observers thought was - Hold. Correct use of Adverb.Hence D OA.

(E) not as a temporary expedient but believing it a
seemingly permanent accommodation for
what many observers thought - Parallelism problem. Not as .. But as. Eliminate.




I believe this will do justice.

Two things are tested here.

1. Seeming permanent accommodation – an adjective modifying another adjective is grammatically wrong. A, B and C are gone. D and E survive first round

2. In the use of correlative conjunctions such as not…. but, llism has to be maintained. D does it perfectly well by using not as … but as. E fails to maintain llism, by saying not as …. but believing. So E falls by the wayside

D is the one.

I had somebody request an explanation of "accommodate for" and "accommodate to"

Here, we are using "accommodation" to mean "adapt" or "compromise" and thus we need "accommodate to."

You'd use "for" if you were using "accommodations" to mean "living arrangements":

"Do you have any available accommodations for me and my family?"

Bumping an old thread :) , nice question

(A) believing it a seeming permanent accommodation rather than a temporary expedient for what many observers thought was
Seeming( adjective) incorrectly modifies the noun accommodation, whereas it actually should modify the adjective permanent. To do so, seeming should be changed to adverb seemingly..

(B) believing it a seeming permanent accommodation instead of a temporary expedient for what many observers thought was
Same as A,

(C) believing that it was not a temporary expedient but a seeming permanent accommodation to what many observers thought of as a
same as A, moreover, thought of as a shows redundancy, thought was is concise.

(D) not as a temporary expedient but as a seemingly permanent accommodation to what many observers thought was CORRECT

(E) not as a temporary expedient but believing it a seemingly permanent accommodation for what many observers thought
parallelism error, the highlighted parts are not parallel
