Seeking a competitive advantage over Suburban Designer,
Urban Dresser's new strategy will be discussed by the
management team in a meeting this quarter.

(A) Urban Dresser's new strategy will be discussed by the
management team in a meeting this quarter The phrase before the comma at the beginning of the sentence is a noun modifier for "Urban Dresser" and not "Urban Dresser's new strategy" so this is wrong

(B) Urban Dresser's meeting for the management team to
discuss a new strategy will happen this quarter Same problem as A

(C) its new strategy, that of Urban Dresser, will be discussed
by the management team, meeting this quarter Misplaced noun modifier

(D) Urban Dresser's management team will hold a meeting
this quarter to discuss a new strategy

(E) the meeting, in which Urban Dresser's new strategy will be
discussed, is what the management will hold this quarter Misplaced noun modifier

D

Official Explanation - Choice D is the answer because Seeking a competitive advantage... describes Urban Dresser or its management team, not the new strategy or the meeting. In A and in C, the first noun after the comma is strategy because the possessives Urban Dresser's and its are not nouns. In B and E, the first noun after the comma is meeting. Also, watch out for sentences that make comparisons. If the nouns compared are described by possessives, make sure that the correct nouns in the sentence are being compared.
