Legitimate historical revisionism acknowledges the existence of a certain body of irrefutable evidence and the existence of a convergence of evidence, which suggests that an event — such as The Black Plague, American Abolitionism, and The Holocaust — did occur whereas the denialism of history rejects the entire foundation of historical evidence and so is a form of historical negationism.

revisionism acknowledges A & B, suggesting that...
Answer should be B.
Which if used will refer to B part which comes immediately before it so A & E should be wrong.
D is wrong if used because it is plural & revisionism in singular.
Between B & C B wins as "that" in C is inappropriate

B.

I feel that ,going by the complete sentence 'suggesting' is the apt choice. It is not clear as to what evidence the word 'which' is referring to in first part of the sentence.

Hello Verbal Expert,

I was hoping you could provide clarity around the right answer? I'm thinking it is B. In particular, could you comment to the difference between A/B/C and how to eliminate between which and that? I will need to follow up and do some more study on my own as well.

I eliminated D and E as the verb tense does not agree with the subject (existence of a convergence of evidence).

This question is not valid, but B is better than the others. Aside from some errors in the fixed portion (we need an "or" before The Holocaust and a comma before "whereas"), there's a meaning problem with all of the choices in terms of what is doing the suggesting. B is best because it uses an adverbial modifier, allowing us to refer back to the entire preceding clause.

A, C, and E use noun modifiers, and it's not clear which noun we're trying to modify. The preceding one (evidence)? Existence? Convergence? All of it? This just doesn't work.

D is of course wrong, since it introduces a random verb ("suggest") that has no subject.

Thank you. I take the CAT from Experts Global and face so many flaw questions like this one. I will lock this topic and warn others to stay away from this question.
