Promotions, retirements, deaths, and other actions approved by the board of directors at its May meeting will be reported in the July 15 issue of the company paper.
(A) Promotions, retirements, deaths, and other actions approved by the board of directors at its May meeting will be reported in the July 15 issue of the company paper.
(B) Promotions, retirements, and other actions which have been approved at the May meeting of the board of directors along with deaths, with be reported in the July 15 issue of the company paper.
(C) To be reported in the July 15 issue of the company paper are the promotions, retirements, deaths, and other actions which were approved at the board of directors’ May meeting.
(D) Meeting in May, the promotions, retirements, and other actions approved by the board of directors, including obituaries, will be reported in the July 15 issue of the company paper.
(E) The July 15 issue of the company paper will report on promotions, retirements, and other actions approved by the board of directors at its May meeting; the paper will also include obituaries.

As we can see, few sentences have obituaries in place of death. Is it allowed, i mean.. should we consider them as a valid option?

E. In A/B/C/D, deaths/obituaries are approaved by the board of directors. Can death/obituaries be approved by somebody? No. Its not logical.

Thats what is not in E.

E sounds most precise and correct, all others have some flaws in them. Hence E.

But Igon's question still remains. Is it ok to replace deaths with obituaries?
