B?

We need..." allowed..to take credit"

this eliminates CDE

"they" in A has a pronoun error ,we dont whether it refers to these 2 people or "others"

B remains-- clealr mentions that the two women were responsible.

B is better over A. among others, "the two women" is more clearer than "they".

It's B.

Neither First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt nor Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins sought recognition by the press, and both cautiously allowed others of the Roosevelt brain trust to take credit for the genesis of historic programs in public employment, relief, and social security for which the two women were in large measure responsible.

- "allowed....to take...." is correct
- "two women" is removing any ambiguity

Allowed + infinitive, so A and B are left

in A who are "they"? the ladies, the historic programs or the employment, social security and etc... which doesn't make any sense.

so B for me

B

"allowed....to take credit" eliminates C, D and E.

A has a problem of "they".

Will go with B.

allowed to take credit is correct. Hence C/D/E are out.

A - ambiguous "they"

(B)

the 'taking' in C,D,E eliminates them quickly where A is unclear about who is being referred to (misplaced modifier?)
