There is some problem in the transcription. Choice E should be A and vice versa. ; Such an error does not occur in GMAT.

However, between A and E, we can never call it the dream when we happen to mention it for the first time. We must first call it a dream and then refer to it as the dream, if
required to repeat. It also implies that Robinson has only one dream in his life and that happens to be the dream about Hawaii. Hence A is defective.

Hi,

In Option B, 'It' does not has a proper antecedent. So B is wrong.

To the original poster:
1.Can you kindly look into the transcription? Choice A should be exactly as in the stimulus.

2.It will be nice if you can kindly remember to underline the relevant parts.( I have done it this time)

3. Your title should be the same as the first few words of the text.

These are mandatory

Hi, what is about B? Why is B wrong? Is there a rule? For me it sounds so right to repeat the "it"
