+1 for A.

(A) again attempt to revive the draft, a program known to be --> Rectifies modifier and idiom error

(B) attempt to revive the draft again, a program known for being --> Modifier(..a program) and idiom(known for being) error

(C) will attempt to revive the draft again, a program known as being --> Modifier(..a program) and idiom(known as being) error

(D) attempt to revive the draft again, a program that is known to be --> Modifier error (..a program)

(E) will again attempt to revive the draft, a program known as being --> Modifier(..a program) and idiom(known as being) error

Hence, A.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The correct expression is ‘known to be’ rather than ‘known for being’. Eliminate B. There is no need to use the future tense in C and E. Its use makes these options wordy. D is also wordy. Choice A is the correct answer.

Being is wrong in B, C and E
Placement of *again* matters a lot and it is rightly placed before "attempt" in A
Isnt D wrong because of comma splice?
