Hi guys,

IMO C

A the beggining of the section doesn't make sense for me: "Heavy commitment by and executive to a course of action"
B the part that is between commas refers to the person, but is in wrong place if it is after "action"
C Hold
D Being
E Being

OA?

Thanks

I will also go with E with the following explanation.
A. Ambiguous reference to it in "makes it....".
B. Change in meaning with the use of "missing signs".
C. Wrong reference to "it" in "if it has worked well....".
D. Ambiguous reference to "they" and "them".

A - Is the right answer

B - Has an awkward construction + the use of 'ones' as a pronoun seems unclear.

C - In the modifier 'especially if it has worked well in the part', the 'it' is unclear.

D - Misplaced modifier + 'Being' is used incorrectly.

E - Awkward construction + the use of 'being' suggests that the executive is in the process of commiting to the course of action.

In addition to these things, you also need to ensure that every pronoun can be replaced by a clear and unique antecedent.

In this case, "being" in option E is used as a gerund. Thus, beginning of the sentence contains a subject clause that is required to make the structure of this sentence correct. Remove the word "being" from the beginning and the sentence looks incomplete.
