A. On entering the stadium, cheers greeted them

C. While entering the stadium, cheers greeted them
D. On entering the stadium cheers greeted them
E. On entering the stadium: cheers greeted them


A. On entering the stadium, cheers greeted them
We get: ...cheers greeted them as a sign of universal approval...
So, the PEOPLE were a sign of approval?
This doesn't make sense. The CHEERS were a sign of approval.
ELIMINATE A
ELIMINATE D and E for the same reason.

B. On entering the stadium, they were greeted by cheers
We get: ....they were greeted by cheers as a sign of universal approval....
So, the CHEERS were a sign of approval.
Perfect. KEEP B

C. While entering the stadium, cheers greeted them
A few problems here.
We have: "While entering the stadium, cheers..." This suggests that the CHEERS entered the stadium.
ELIMINATE C

By the process of elimination, the correct answer is B

Cheers,
Brent

There doesn't appear to be an antecedent for THEY.
That said, B is still the best answer.

ASIDE: this question is not a question from the Official Guide (as stated); it's from a Barron's book.


Cheers,
Brent
