I marked the answer 2 times , changing my answer choice in the second attempt. I must say a very good question indeed. Trick is to eliminate the wrong answer from the 2 seemingly right choices, for example : whether "due to " can have adverbs in between "due and to " , I think i have read somewhere that this is not allowed. But I am not sure.

Even whether X was expensive, nevertheless was the cheapest among semicolon IT (the proposal and it refers back to the proposal itself without ambiguity) is the best option to have......and the second part of the sentence is parallel.

B must be the answer

A gud ques from a reliable and trusted source, I.e Veritas Prep. Was able to narrow it down to B & C but after that I was pretty not sure , although I marked one along them. Pls someone tell me that in many a lot SC ques I am narrow it down to 2 options with high level of surity but I get confused after this between these 2 options. Pls somebody ( esp this verbal forum moderators) throw some light on this and help me get over my plight , so that even one more member is able to score in the high 700's. :help2 :banana :yes

C is wrong for two main reasons: first of all, the sentence lacks of the main verbe. When you have HAD this tense must be paired with the simple past to maintain the parallellism.

You have two actions in the past: the first one is expressed with the simple past, and the second one, which is antecedent to the same, logically comes before the first one.

Secondly: if you cut off the long modifier the sentence loses its meaning; you do have only part of the story that it wants to convey

Hope this helps

For me it is A.

The word riskiness is wordy and there are several tense mistakes in the other sentences.

Waiting for OA :)
