That the new managing editor rose from the publication’s “soft” news sections to a leadership position is more of a landmark in the industry than her being a woman.
(A) her being a woman passive
(B) being a woman is awkward
(C) her womanhood how can womanhood be landmark? strange
(D) that she was a woman that is parallel, but the tense mismatch
(E) that she is a woman "that" is parallel. tense match with the first sentence

Point1. She is the new MD; and so she is still alive. The sentence is set in present tense. We use- rose- because that was a past event. There is no need to parallelize it by using another past tense for the current situation.
Point 2. ‘That’ //ism is to be maintained. E Satisfies both the conditions.

E it is.
"That the new managing editor" is compared with "that she is". Parallelism and comparison is maintained.

Correct answer by elimination

A. her being a woman – incorrect case (objective case, her). 3rd person singular here should be subjective case i.e. she (her is acting as a subject, which is the wrong case to use)
B. being a woman is – awkward. missing subject "she" for the clause
C. her womanhood - being a woman and womanhood are not the same
D. that she was a woman – she is a woman still, was incorrect tense
E. that she is a woman - Correct

Thanks.

This one is similar in spirit to the classic Halley's comet OG question, covered in a recent QOTD: https://gmatclub.com/forum/qotd-in-no-o ... 53668.html. Check that out for a comparison that has similar issues in it, albeit without the word "that".

In this case, the word "that" basically means the same thing as "the fact that." So what, exactly, are we trying to compare in (E)? The underlined bits: "That the new managing editor rose from the publication’s “soft” new sections to a leadership position is more of a landmark in the industry than that she is a woman." We're comparing those two facts, and the comparison is a heck of a lot clearer if the word "that" is included in both halves of the comparison.

I hope this helps!
