worried about is correct idiom

C also maintains parallelism

The current administration, being worried over some foreign trade barriers being removed and our exports failing to increase as a result of deep cuts in the value of the dollar, has formed a group to study ways to sharpen our competitiveness.


(A) being worried over some foreign trade barriers being removed and our exports failing
the correct idiom is worried about

(B) worrying over some foreign trade barriers being removed, also over the failure of our exports
the correct idiom is worried about

(C) worried about the removal of some foreign trade barriers and the failure of our exports
'worried about X and Y' is parallel and the correct idiom, therefore Best answer

(D) in that they were worried about the removal of some foreign trade barriers and also about the failure of our exports
'the current administration' is singular, 'they' is wrong

(E) because of its worry concerning the removal of some foreign trade barriers, also concerning the failure of our exports
'because of' is wordy, 'concerning....., also concerning...' wordy as well

I think the answer is B.

The underlined phrase modifies the "current administration" and so a participle is required after the comma.

Actually he did not provide any explanation. Moreover, some of his other points are incorrect. For example, "compare to - compare with" issue. Anand's took examples from classical grammar, not GMAT grammar. Personally I would avoid reading confusing explanations.
