- For students that would later be known - in A and C and -for students that later will be known - in D are wrong modifiers. The right idiom is - allowed the admin to run - as in E and not - administration running – as in B. E is the right one.

(E) administration to run a sufficient program for students later to be known as

E is the correct answer.
Avoid the use of progressive tense when the sentence can be expressed easily with simple present. Moreover, in general statements, alsways prefer the simple present.
Discount answer choices A, B and C for using "administration running...". The correct phrase is "administration to run...". Moreover, the use of infinitive is preferred in statements which reveals the intention of purpose of doing simething.
D is incorrect because of the use of the words "will" and "being". It is grammatically incorrect and redundant.

(A) administration running a sufficient program for students that would later be known by the name of
(B) administration running a sufficient program for students later to be known as name
(C) administration running sufficient programs for students that would later be known by the name of
(D) administration to run a sufficient program for students that later will be known as being
(E) administration to run a sufficient program for students later to be known as



My Approach

1) Idiomatic usage - Known as (eliminating A and c)
2) eliminating D for use of being - unnecessary usage
3) B/w B and E, Preferred E over B as known as name of is wrong

I would go for E. Pls post OA.

Clear E, I think OA is not necessary to confirm it.
