Dear avohden & dentobizz
Thank you for your private messages. I am happy to give my two cents on this question. :-)

I searched the web and was not able to find any source for this question --- for all I know, perhaps ykaiim made it himself. I would say this question is a faulty question, as are many questions that generate the most discussion and confusion on GC.

The word "also" is an adverb, NOT a conjunction, and it absolutely cannot be used to link two clauses or two verbs in parallel. The word "also" often accompanies a bonafide conjunction ("and also", "but also") but is not a conjunction on its own. Thus, all five answer choices are run-on sentences. I don't know what the question author was trying to test on this question, but that author apparently did not understand the basics of grammar.

The very best think you can do for your GMAT preparedness would be to pretend that this question does not exist.

Remember, if you can't determine the source, don't make it your default assumption that something in the form of a GMAT SC is actually a good question. Make it your default assumption that a question without a source may not be worth anything at all, and if it generates a great deal of controversy about the OA, then that's further evidence that it just may not be a good question. A good SC question may be tricky, but usually once someone points out the fundamental issues, most people will fall into agreement.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

(A) were impressive to the managers who worked with her, was also acknowledged as a leading strategist by many people outside her firm, including executives at rival

Yeah it uses active voice instead of passive voice but rest of the sentence is awkward.
The company's chief executive also was acknowledged as a leading strategist by many people outside her firm

hence A is correct

Its a B for me. I eliminated A for "were impressive" this tells me that its no more impressive.
B. says Impessed which tells me nothing about a change in his expertise, views and DM.

whats the OA?

I was torn between A & B and went with B for the the active voice instead of the passive voice. I know passive is not inherently wrong but is not preferred on the GMAT. I also noticed the difference between the "was also" and "also was". Out of curiosity I looked up the difference to see which one is correct or more correct. The following are the rules for the use of "also".

How to Use It - “Also” is used in positive sentences, to show agreement or something in common.

Alice can join us. Helene can also join us. | Mahmoud speaks French. Renata also speaks French.
Leilani likes to read novels. She also likes to read poetry. He is also becoming a teacher. We were also there.

Where to Place It “Also” comes before a single action verb.

Renata also speaks French. She also likes to read poetry.

Except… “Also” comes after a modal or “to be” verb, and before the infinitive.

We were also there. | Helene can also join us. | He is also becoming a teacher.

Source http://kaplaninternational.com/blog/how-to-use-also-too/

Back to sentence and answer choices. In both sentences the use of "to be" is in the form of was. Therefore, it is correct to put the "also" after the "was" and before the infinitive. It seems like A is correct. I know that is what some others had said, but since the OA was not specified, I needed to quell my curiosity.

(A) The company's chief executive, .... , was also acknowledged .....

(B) The company's chief executive, .... , also was acknowledged .....

Hope this helps.

As this question was posted in 2010 and ykaiim last visted the forum in August 2012, I don't think a response is forthcoming. I checked the net for any other postings of this question and the only other place this question is posted is on BTG. The responses there indicated A was answer. I think its safe to conclude that A is the OA but I will pm an expert for a unofficial resolution.

POE
C and D have SV error
was impressive
The list is x, y, and z. So the list needs plural WERE

E has the word impression , which is a train wreck

In B - if we remove the fluff, sentence is - - - >

The company's chief executive also was acknowledged

This means someone else was also acknowledged. Who?
That's the shift in the meaning. The sentence intend to say that she was acknowledged also as a leading strategists.

Imo A is the answer

Consider Kudos if that helped.

The bold part is a modifier, modifying the chief executive. So without the modifier, the sentence should be correct.

The company's chief executive also was acknowledged as a leading strategist by many people outside her firm, including executives at rival companies, whose approaches often differed substantially from her own.

'also was' is thus incorrect. It doesn't make sense.
B, D, and E are out.

Between A and C, A is the winner because of the first word - were.

Quote:
The company's chief executive, whose technological expertise, views on the future of the industry, and decision-making style were

Not 'was'.

Hence, A.
