A. mechanisms that enable the owners and controllers of wealth to escape their responsibilities to society and to be able to continue to accumulate -> "enable" already includes ability. to be able to is redundant.

B. mechanisms that enable the owners and controllers of wealth to escape their responsibilities to society and to continue to accumulate -> correct, with correct parallelism between "to escape" and "to continue"

C. mechanisms; that enable the owners and controllers of wealth to escape their responsibilities to society, to continue to accumulate -> the second part after a semi-colon must also be an independent clause. here, it is not.

D. mechanisms, which enables the owners and controllers of wealth to escape their responsibilities to society, accumulating -> "that" is better since the description is an important part of the statement. "enables" is wrong. it should be enable. "accumulating...." creates an incomplete sentence - if you remove the part between commas, you don't have a complete sentence with a main verb.

E. programs, which enable the owners and controllers of wealth to be able to escape their responsibilities to society, continuing to accumulate -> change of meaning. programs and mechanisms are not the same thing. again, sentence is incomplete.


Answer is (B).

Reasons are inline.
