A, D, and E out as they are not parallel.

Its between B and C.

I'll go for B (was feted before he was to be denounced) instead of (was feted before being denounced)

I will go with 'C' even though it has forbidden word "being". This seems to be the best option.

A,D --> denunciation is awkward
B ----> denounced with exile is awkward
E ----> awkward phrase

C is the best choice.

Will go with C too. But still have one question.
All the books I have read and several times in this forum people have advised not to use the word being.

The only reason I chose being as didnot like any other choice. Any clarification

You have to go with the options ..There is no other option that is free of flaws .. sentence c looks the best although it adds passivism in the sentence ...Don't go with any sentence that uses "being" unless all other choices are gramaticall incorrect.. C 4 me

Hi jaynayak,

I was in the same boat as you until this week... I read SC notes document that was posted on this forum and realized that there are legitimate cases for 'being'.

Here is the doc attached, check out page 7.

Cheers,
