It's a straight A. C changes the meaning and is alos grammatically incorrect. There should have been a comma after made for throwing, otherwise it appears non aus called all aero enhanced, curved objs, made for throwing boomerangs ---- > as in it appears that the sentence is talking about specific aerodynamic objects which were made for throwing boomerangs; where as the intent of the sentence is to inform us that such objects were called boomerangs.

Anything but A or B elim b/c, "when Europeans saw Dharug-peaking men tossing" should refer to 1788.

Now btwn A or B, i really don't see any difference. Both use Any and All correctly here, no tense errors.

Come test day id do... eni meenie minie moo.....

Do you have an explanation why B is incorrect?

I also had it down to A because the answers C,D,and E "from when" is not GMATically correct and A/B refers back to the year correctly
B is incorrect because if you look at the beginning "Regardless of their form or function" we need a plural form to keep the subject parallel. B is the singular form "any...curved object" rather than "all..curved objects"

B. 'Regardless of their form or function, any '-> any cannot point to their

C. Lacks parallelism

D. 'from when europeans...' is awkward

'made for throwing boomerang' is awkward

A is best.

I have a major problem with A -> 'even since' - that makes no sense in this context. Shouldn't the correct usage be 'ever since'???
