OE

The correct response is (E). On the GMAT, sometimes sentences unnecessarily written in passive voice can be corrected with an active construction. (E) replaces the passive form by starting the sentence with its true subject, “SteelCo.” It’s considerably clearer and more concise than the other choices.

If you chose (A), this sentence is written in passive voice and is wordy (“that information that was provided”). Look for a more active construction in the other choices, since that is usually a less wordy and clearer way of conveying a sentence’s meaning.

If you chose (B), the verb “is” does not match the past-tense “was” later in the sentence. Additionally, this simply rephrases the original sentence but remains passively constructed. Look for a more active construction that is free from grammar errors.

If you chose (C), this choice incorrectly changes the singular verb “was” to “were.” The verb “were” does not agree with the noun it references, “information.”

If you chose (D), this is simply a rewording of the original sentence. However, it does not fix the original wordiness and passive construction. Additionally, it is unclear what “that information” is referring to.

I will go with E as it is more concise and clear in meaning
One can rule out B,C and D
A says THAT Information...which information? this construction isnt right
I will go with E
