(A) Notice of the upcoming execution being given to convicted murderers two days before executing

(B) Giving notice of the upcoming execution to convicted murderers two days before executing

(C) Notice of the upcoming execution to give to convicted murderers two days before executing

(D) Giving notice of the upcoming execution two days before executing

Hi Bunuel Kindly correct the missing non-underlined part in the question. Thanks!!

+1 for B

(A) Notice of the upcoming execution being given to convicted murderers two days before executing

(B) Giving notice of the upcoming execution to convicted murderers two days before executing --> Correct tense.

(C) Notice of the upcoming execution to give to convicted murderers two days before executing

(D) Giving notice of the upcoming execution two days before executing --> Convicted murderers is missing, which leads to pronoun ambiguity in non underlined part

(E) To give notice of the upcoming execution two days before having to execute --> same as E

+1 for B.

(A) Notice of the upcoming execution being given to convicted murderers two days before executing --> Awkward construct

(B) Giving notice of the upcoming execution to convicted murderers two days before executing --> Rectifies noun error ( convicted murderers - execute them ), and eradicates awkward construct

(C) Notice of the upcoming execution to give to convicted murderers two days before executing --> Awkward construct

(D) Giving notice of the upcoming execution two days before executing --> Execute whom? Noun error

(E) To give notice of the upcoming execution two days before having to execute --> Execute whom? Noun error

Hence, B.

I know A is wrong because of "being" usage.
Is there any other mistake in option A.
"being" is just making a run on sentence. so why is it incorrect?

(C) Notice of the upcoming execution to give to convicted murderers two days before executing

(D) Giving notice of the upcoming execution two days before executing

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



‘Notice being given’ in A is idiomatically incorrect. ‘Notice of the upcoming execution to give’ in C is also idiomatically incorrect. D and E omit reference to the convicted murderers. Choice B is the correct answer.
