B. should both result in increased exports and domestic markets being reclaimed that were

https://www.nytimes.com/1989/03/01/business/consumer-spending-in-surge.html

Most economists had expected a modest upward revision, but the real disappointment was in the less-desirable composition of output. Policy makers and economists are largely agreed that the United States needs to curb domestic demand while investing in new industrial capacity, a shift that should result in both greater exports and the reclaiming of domestic markets lost to imported goods.

Many policymakers and economists agree that the Arboria needs to curb domestic demand for foreign goods while investing in new domestic industrial capacity, a shift that both should result in increased exports and reclaim domestic markets that are lost to imported goods.

The correct idiom "both X and Y" should have similar types X and Y.

A. both should result in increased exports and reclaim domestic markets that are -- wrong

B. should both result in increased exports and domestic markets being reclaimed that were -- usage of "being", wordy

C. should result in both increased exports and reclaim domestic markets -- noun and verb conjoined by and

D. should result both in increased exports and domestic markets being reclaimed that had been -- usage of being

E. should result in both increased exports and the reclaiming of domestic markets -- CORRECT, both <noun> and <noun>

So, answer should be E

Is the use of "reclaiming of domestic markets" correct here instead of "reclamation of domestic markets"?

IMO both works.

If you look at the sentence, it says "should result in both A and B", so you can break it down into:
- Should result in A (increased exports)
- Should result in B (the reclaiming of domestic markets)
>> Both are noun phrases

In this case, the word "the" before "reclaiming" signals a use of gerund (verb+ing as a noun), which works in a similar fashion as the noun "reclamation".

Hey Debo both will be correct. refer below an excerpt from mgmat:

"In any list of action nouns, always choose the complex gerund phrase (often with articles and the word Of) over the simple gerund phrase"

wrong: The rebels demanded the withdrawal of government forces from disputed regions AND releasing certain political prisoners.
wrong: The rebels demanded the withdrawal of government forces from disputed regions AND THE releasing OF certain political prisoners.
right: The rebels demanded the withdrawal of government forces from disputed regions AND THE RELEASE OF certain political prisoners.
right: he rebels demanded the withdrawal of government forces from disput­ ed regions, significant reductions in overall troop levels, THE raising OF the rebel flag on holidays, AND a general pardon.

Hope this helps a little.

siddharthfrancis When we see the construction "both X and Y," then the X and Y need to be parallel terms, meaning that they must be the same part of speech and be used in the same way. In C we have BOTH increased exports AND reclaim. "Increased exports" is a noun phrase, while "reclaim" is a verb, so this has to go. In fact, if you look through the answers, you'll find that ALL of the wrong answers fail this test. The terms after "both" and "and" don't match. However, "the reclaiming" actually serves as a noun (we could say, for instance, that "the reclaiming took a long time"), so we can make it parallel to "increased exports."
