On the basis of their review of first quarter operating results, management’s decision was to forgo expansion plans and pursue a more conservative marketing approach aimed at streamlining product offerings.

A) On the basis of their review of first quarter operating results, management’s decision was
It seems here that the DECISION, rather than the management iself, reviewed the first quarter operating results. Moreover, DECISION is a singular and the word THEIR is a plural pronoun

B) On the basis of its review of first quarter operating results, management decided
Correct

C) Based on reviewing first quarter operating results, a decision was made by management
BASED ON is used with a Noun (for e.g. The movie is BASED ON a true story). REVIEWING is a verb, therefore this construction is wrong.

D) Based on their review of first quarter operating results, management decided
This construction gets rid of the BASED ON error in Option C, however THEIR is a plural pronoun and it is referring to MANAGEMENT, which is singular.

E) Based on first quarter operating results, management decided
Changes the meaning of the original sentence. The management based its decision on the REVIEW of first quarter results, and not the FIRST QUARTER RESULTS themselves.
