Will go with E here --
IMO:
A majority will take plural form
eliminate A,B and C
D- usage of which is not right
E -Correct

i think the answer should be B
the clause after that has the subject "a majority of employees" which refers to single group of employees
so it should have the verb "has"
Option D & E are out as they are having "have" in the option
Now, the game is between A B & C
(A) against the resolution, a resolution that was - this part is wordy
(B) has voted against the resolution, which was - "which" correctly modifies the resolution and removes the wordy construction
(C)has voted against the resolution, supposedly - Supposedly incorrectly modifies "the resolution"

It should be:D

Majority here should be plural as it refers to group of employees

And 'that' is uncessarry as 'which' could be use here as it refers to non essential clause

Greetings :)

as far as i know "majority" is a collective noun and can be used both in singular and plural forms. it depends on common sence :)

So, here we are referring to employees, hence A, B, and C are out.

Between D and E, i would go for D, because in E coorect idiom should be "benefit from smth"
