It is going to bring a lot of learning to posters and readers if the entire analysis or query is posted. Just posting the favorite choices solves no purpose. Hope it makes sense. Let's discuss :)

(A) from Macon to Omaha, during which the business

(B) from Macon to Omaha, where it

(C) from Macon to Omaha, where they

(D) it was then moved from Macon to Omaha, where it

(E) from Macon to Omaha, where the business



Imo E

A wrong we can not use during here as it refers to time not place .
B is incorrect as it is wrong here .Headquarter can not capture market but business can so out .it is ambiguous
C Again they is wrong
D use of it ambiguous here
Think E is more clear and only business can succeed in capturing market .

I think E is the right answer because the use of possession in the beginning(business's) needs a direct mention of the noun later in the sentence(business) that takes place only in option E. Hence the answer

imho D,

Since there are only two elements in the list: from Atlanta to Macon and from Macon to Omaha, we don't need a comma before and. Comma before and signifies that as per FANBOYS there has to be another subject after "and". D is the only such choice, where both it refers to headquarters.
what is wrong in this approach?

headquarter was first moved
from X to Y and then after sometime
it was then moved from Y to Z

how many "then" do we need?

VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL SOLUTION:



The most actionable decision point on this problem is the pronoun choice - you have decisions at the end of the sentence between "it," "they," and "the business." And note that (as in this case) when answer choices replace a pronoun with an "actual" noun, you should always be a bit skeptical of whether a pronoun is the right choice at all.

Here the subject of the sentence is "the business's headquarters," or more succinctly "headquarters." This is singular, so "they" would be an incorrect pronoun for singular/plural agreement reasons. But even more importantly the headquarters isn't what "succeeded in recapturing its dominant presence in the market." The business is what succeeded, after its headquarters had been moved. So none of the pronouns are correct: "they" commits an agreement error and "it" commits a logical reference error. Therefore (B), (C), and (D) are all incorrect.

Between (A) and (E), the remaining choices, the difference is one of modifier "during which" vs. "where." Because that modifier describes locations and not time periods, you must use "where," making choice (E) correct.
