Stuck b/w C and E, but have to chose one so go for E

I think "will continue" is wordy in think context

A,B are out, company is a collective noun that requires a singular verb.

Between C and D, D sounds awkward compared, therefore, eliminated.

Btween C and E. I''l go with E. E conveys the same meaning in a more concise way.

I agree E is more concise but isn't it important to capture the "will continue" part..the futuristic aspect of the statement?

If not, i agree with you guys on E.

We need "Limon and his mentor and collaborator Doris Humphrey" in the end so that this is near to "who both "

Also "they" is incorrect for collective noun.

Only C, D and E qualify.

1. In C, "it has and will continue to perpetuate" is a tense error or not?
2. Why D is incorrect? Is this sentence wrong: "He has eaten a lot and will continue eating until government meets his demands." Same thing is used here "it has perpetuated and will continue perpetuating"
3. Why E is correct even though E is not using the future aspect.

Same thing is used here "it has perpetuated and will continue perpetuating" Your sample sentence conveys [color=blue]two things..he has eaten a lot and will continue. The answer choice merely repeats that the company will perpetuate.[/color]

3. Why E is correct even though E is not using the future aspect.

It should be 'E'.

A & B -> S-V error
C & D -> Redundant Information

Late, but E. C is the trap answer here. Has and will continue is always wrong in GMAT English.
