This is fun, we're already seeing some disagreement on this one!

There are a bunch of moving parts on this question, but one of the major issues is the verb tense. "Since the end of the recession..." requires present perfect tense. Other than that, we have some fun stuff with pronouns ("that of") and some little meaning-based issues.

Quote:
A. recently extended recession, prices for all of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including niche agricultural goods such as orange juice and cheese, have been rising to five-year high levels.

The verb tense is OK here, but there are a couple of weird bits. "Recently extended recession" doesn't really make a whole ton of sense, considering that we know that the recession is already over. (Head-nod to this official GMAT question with a similar phrase in it.) "Five-year high levels" isn't necessarily wrong, but it's definitely not ideal: "five-year highs" is much clearer.

If you're not totally certain about these two issues, you could be conservative and hang onto (A) for now, but we'll see that there's a better choice below.

Quote:
B. recently extended recession, prices for each of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including niche agricultural goods such as orange juice and cheese, rose to five-year highs.

The "recently extended recession" issue is the same as in (A). And more importantly, the verb tense is definitely wrong: "Since the end of the recession... prices rose" doesn't work, since we need present perfect tense here ("have risen") to indicate that the action continues into the present. Eliminate (B).

Notice also that there's no reason to care about the difference between "each" and "all", since those words are not subjects, and therefore do not affect the form of the verb.

Quote:
C. recent, extended recession, prices for all of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including that of such niche agricultural goods as orange juice and cheese, have risen to five-year high levels.

I'm still not crazy about "five-year high levels", but the bigger issue here is the pronoun phrase "that of." "That" is a singular pronoun here, but it's clearly trying to refer back to the plural noun "prices." Eliminate (C).

Quote:
D. recent, extended recession, prices for each of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including niche agricultural goods such as orange juice and cheese, rose to five-year highs.

(D) has the same verb error as we saw in (B). So we can ditch (D) as well.
Quote:
E. recent, extended recession, prices for each of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including such niche agricultural goods as orange juice and cheese, have risen to five-year highs.

This looks good! The verb, pronoun, and meaning errors are all fixed in (E), so this one is the correct answer.

IMO its C
It has corrected several mistakes pointed below:

Since the end of recent, extended recession - clearly indicates the recession has ended unlike the original which is unclear in usage.
Prices for all...have risen to - corrected tense
prices of all...including that of... parallelism correction

Waiting for OA.

Hi GMATNinja

Is the comma between recent and extended correct in Option E ?
The reference from OG question that is mentioned in your response does NOT have a comma between recent and extended..

Can someone explain "including niche agricultural goods such as" vs "including such niche agricultural goods as"? Isn't the former construction better than the latter? What are the rules surrounding such as and examples?

GMATNinja Thanks for the explanation :-) , but can you explain as to why " recently extended recession" is wrong vis-a-vis " recent, extended recession" ?? Furthermore what does comma plus including modify ??

Both are grammatically correct and such structural difference should not be a point of concern.

A

Eliminated option C D E
It should be recently extended recession
Left with A and B
Choosing A since effect of recession is still there in present
hence present perfect / present perfect continuous is required (that justifies 'have been rising')

Modified answer : E
Referred to a similar qstn pointed by GmatNinja from og which explains in detail 'recently' vs 'recent'

Recently -> adverb - cannot modify a noun phrase (extended recession)
Recent -> adjective correctly modifies the noun phrase

Since the end of the recently extended recession, prices for all of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including niche agricultural goods such as orange juice and cheese, have been rising to five-year high levels.

A. recently extended recession, prices for all of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including niche agricultural goods such as orange juice and cheese, have been rising to five-year high levels. - "have been rising" seems like the wrong tense... looking for "have risen" to indicate that this action was happening the past and ended in the present.
B. recently extended recession, prices for each of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including niche agricultural goods such as orange juice and cheese, rose to five-year highs. - same tense issue as A..
C. recent, extended recession, prices for all of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including that of such niche agricultural goods as orange juice and cheese, have risen to five-year high levels. - "including that of such" is not correct; "have risen" is correct though!
D. recent, extended recession, prices for each of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including niche agricultural goods such as orange juice and cheese, rose to five-year highs. - same issue as A & B
E. recent, extended recession, prices for each of the major commodities sold at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, including such niche agricultural goods as orange juice and cheese, have risen to five-year highs. - bingo!

How do we know that the modifier has to be only for recession(i.e noun)? why cant we modify extended with recently?? Both ways the meaning of the sentence makes sense and is grammatically correct. In such cases how do we decide whether the verb or the noun has to be described??
