In A "depart" is present tense, in B "departed" is past.

"relieved" is in both cases present perfect.

because, first there has to be the departure of the children and then the relieve, the 2relieved" should be followed by a past tense.

C should be correct.

I don't see anything wrong with A.

present tense is used ("are") thats why "depart" is fine here.

'A' is the best!

C - wrong in using "departed". It's grammatically wrong.

Here, this will help,
"X is relieved when Y departs" --> is correct.
"X was relived when Y departed" --> is correct.

What is the OA? and can someone break down each answer choice and elaborate on why they are wrong?

In option A,
'are relieved' (present perfect) is parallel in tense with 'depart'

imo ans is A

A is right. Relieved is a past participle serving as an adjective describing women. The sentence is in present tense as it is making a general statement - They are relieved when their children depart. A general statement of truth (such as - Truth always triumphs) is usually written in the present tense.

I'd go with A. B,C,D are incorrect past tense. E is wordy and incorrectly phrased.

OA?

Depart - Verb

Departed - Adjective. Hence 'C' is no good.

I will go for 'A'

B,D cause a sentence fragment.

E: awkward ending "in fact" is not grammatical.

C: not grammatical and I believe this is a sentence fragment. "departed" is wrong.



Ans A.

A doesn't have any errors

are relieved when their children depart
For C to be correct - "were relieved" when their children "departed"
