the phrases "the Microsoft founder" and "the Apple founder" are placed after the proper nouns. we need commas to set off the modifying phrases. Commas do not appear

this question is the case of proper noun and common noun here founder is the common noun which cannot be separated from proper noun (name) by comma as in choice d

so b, d, ruled out ,e is wrong change the original tense making it awkward and c is bit wordy


kudos please if you like the explanations

When you narrowed down to A/D ...

D --> Name of founders Bill gates/steve jobs in comma is wrong ...As information is essential We can not put them into comma's,
Usage of comma make sentence structure wise wrong ....

Therefore Left with A although took 2.52 Min :oops:

This is how I narrow down to (A)
