That the XXXXX than that she was/is a woman

E/D left, is or was... [is more of a landmark and that she is a woman] or [is more of a landmark and that she was a woman]

E should be the one.

being usage must handle with care on the Gmat SC.

being is the continuous form of the verb ‘Be’. We use “Being” when action is temporary. or for passive voice.

A, B out. C out

hence D or E. D out for WAS. E maintains parallelism

+1 E

Arrange the sentence and you will see:

More of a landmark in the industry is THAT the new managing editor rose from the publications soft news sections to a leadership program than THAT she is a woman.

Shouldn't rose being past tense imply that was or 'D' be a more logical choice?

We are comparing two facts here
1. the new managing editor rose from the publications soft news sections to a leadership program is more of a landmark in the industry
2. She is a woman.

So, clearly answer choice E makes sense here.

Hey carcass
I know that I sound very silly, but I don't really understand at all. Could you just help me build my basics? :)

to choose the correct answer for this question, test takers should clearly understand the idea stated in the sentence.
normally, gmat will not test the tense of a fact. In other words, a fact can have a past tense of a verb. Nevertheless, in thsi question, "she is a woman" makes more sense than "she was a woman" => E is correct.

Chesstitans has a point. For instance, from a meaning standpoint, none of the options work, since "being a woman" would never be a landmark. Many people are women! :D We'd need to specifically indicate that what specific thing she did as a woman that was a landmark. (It can't just be the idea in the first part, or we're left with no comparison.)

Also, the English of the non-underlined portions is not strong. For instance, we're missing an apostrophe in "publication's" and the phrase "a leadership program" doesn't make sense. Do they mean a leadership position? Even still, the meaning is much more vague than it would be in a real SC sentence.
