The official answer is B.

Sorry about the typo, women should be woman in the answers.

isnt the idiom for "elected" is "elected to" so how come B is right?
my answer was C.
I hate when this happens, MGMAT says 'elected to', and my notes tell me 'elected as' so I guess you can use both!

Though "elected as" is not idiomatic, I pick B because the tense is right.

Yes, you are right. If the sentence points to a specific time in the past, use simple tenses.

Whats the problem with the "had" here, as in Mgmat SC it says:-

Note that the later past event does not need to be expressed with a Simple Past tense verb. You
could just use a date or another time reference.
Right: By 1945. the United States HAD BEEN at war for several years.

Can anyone explain here please??

Answer: A 

WAS modifies first senatorial election. Incorrect. Eliminate B & C 
wordy - elected in order to be - Eliminate E 
akward, gives a different meaning that Hattie Caraway selected to work for a Senator -Eliminate D

Rearranging the structure -
A women was not elected as US senator until 1932.
Vs.
A women had not been elected as US senator until 1932.

A plane historical fact should be communicated in simple past tense.

Hope this helps :)
