D or E.
i vote for D. Since "it" modifies H. Hudson correctly.

I also think is D or E

I'd choose D because "seem to be" is redundant (same as "consider to be")

D and E are the best, agree
I would vote for E even though it is longer than D

I would say E. And if that's not it then B makes second best sense.

E. In the context of the sentence E "seems to be" ) more appropriate.

If it is A, then Hosea Hudson is the only organization. Apply a sanity test!

Another high-quality question from our friends at downdown.net.

Praetorian, as a bit of a graybeard around here, do you really think the downdown questions have any merit?

i do not agree with the official answer.

E is really the only choice which is "best".

About what i think, my perception has little value... perception can be from a lack of knowledge. Just because this SC looks stupid and defies everything i know, i cannot conclude that this SC is outta whack.
Simply because i do not know enough about grammar and intuition is really a bad tool to use in these cases.

Dissecting SC's and knowing why a choice is wrong is one of the better ways to master the SC part of verbal.

thats why i thought we need a discussion.

People like Akamai are better judges of bad questions, especially in verbal.

thanks

wouldn't D and E imply that Hudson is the "it"?
