There is a fatal problem in this topic. ‘Annual ---each year or every year ’ stated in the same clause is redundant. Every choice contains this error. How was such mistake overlooked by the author? Hitesh! Please look into your source more critically

Hi daagh,
Are annually presented awards...
and
published every year in the magazine....talking about the same thing? Why they're redundant?
Thanks__

So subtle differences... I am trying to build a structure for myself.

1. I have also thought about what daagh mentioned.
It seems to me, there is no redundancy. "Annualy presented" and "published every year" are2 different actions. So it is ok.

2. The simple one. X and Y ---> plural ---> D is out.

3. Now. "Presented annual awards" and "Have annually presented awards" - really very subtle. It seems like the second one is clearer. It makes us to exclude A and B.

4. One more subtle issue. "awards recognizing the best articles" and "awards in recognition of the best articles"
From one point the first one for me is more GMAT-like construction. From another point it sounds like award recognize the best article - it is odd. Maybe it is really better to choose the second one.
If so, A, B, and D (again, no matter) are out.

5. So we are between C and E.And I do not know exactly why C. Maybe because "every year" sounds better than "each year"

I've had the same thoughts. There's no redundancy for me.

Really. But is this answer is correct from GMAT-point?
Maybe experts will say something?
