A. B redundantly uses 'has a lack in credible leadership', all the others change the meaning.

Could someone explain why A is right?
That the consumer products division lacks credible leadership cannot be blamed for the company's troubles.

(A) That the consumer products division lacks credible leadership cannot be blamed - seems like fragment; so didnt pick
(B) That the consumer products division has a lack in credible leadership cannot be blamed
(C) The consumer products division lacks credible leadership cannot be blamed it has a missing word 'for' - so why is it incorrect? The construction seems clearer in meaning.
(D) The lack of credible leadership of the consumer products division is not blaming
(E) It is not blameworthy that the consumer products division lacks credible leadership

What this sentence is trying to convey is that just because "the consumer products division lacks credible leadership" that does not mean that lack of credibility in itself is necessarily an attributable cause of the company's trouble. We cannot blame the company's troubles on the fact that the consumer division lacks credible leadership in other words. So actually "A" is fine.

Hi pclawong ,

C has a DISASTROUS Error.

It has one subject and two verbs joined without any conjunction. GMAT hates this and so I. :P

Subject : The consumer products division

Verb 1: lacks credible leadership
Verb 2: cannot be blamed

Does that make sense?

Thank you but isn't A the same?

(A) That the consumer products division lacks credible leadership cannot be blamed
(C) The consumer products division lacks credible leadership cannot be blamed

Would you tell me how "that" makes the difference?

Hi pclawong ,

Here I go:

That here is representing "The fact that". It is okay to use just "that"

Now, A is actually a combination of two sentences

1. The fact that X cannot be blamed.
2. the consumer products division lacks credible leadership

Hence, A is correct.

Let me take an example:

The fact that I am an Indian Engineer is the reason I am not at Harvard.

Did you see a similar construction now?
