E? Of course I am not sure.

The original stem says "resulted in"

All of A/B/C/D make the sentence sound as though
X resulted in A and B.
where A = the dismissal of the president, who was charged with Z
The dispute did not result in an administrative misconduct.

E clearly specifies that "he taught false doctrine and administrative misconduct"

The doctrinal dispute resulted in the dismissal of the president of the seminary, who was charged with teaching false doctrine and with administrative misconduct.
(A) charged with teaching false doctrine and with administrative misconduct
(B) charged with teaching false doctrine and administrative misconduct
(C) being charged that he taught false doctrine and administrative misconduct
(D) charged with both false doctrine teaching and administrative misconduct
(E) teaching false doctrine and administrative misconduct as charged

I think the answer for this 'A'. The answer choice 'B' looks good but it changes the meaning to mean the president is teaching adminstrative misconduct.

Answer choices 'C' and 'E' are awkward.

Going by my own logic, E is worng. I don't know what I was thinking

It should be A.

(A) charged with teaching false doctrine and with administrative misconduct ==> Correct! ||...."charged with...and with..."

(B) charged with teaching false doctrine and administrative misconduct ==> Changes meaning. Sounds like he taught false doctrine AND adminstrative misconduct??

(C) being charged that he taught false doctrine and administrative misconduct ==> Incorrect. Use of "being" is wrong

(D) charged with both false doctrine teaching and administrative misconduct ==> IMO, the use of 'both' here is redundant

(E) teaching false doctrine and administrative misconduct as charged ==> Awkward construction

First I thought it's B. But it indeed changes the meaning. A should be correct. AO?

A it is.
It can't be B because according to B,president was charged with teaching administrative misconduct.He didn't teach administrative misconduct.
All other choices are wrong,therefore,A is the only viable answer.

A for ||ism.

The fight is between A and B. Should one look ||ism in

"with teaching false doctrine and with administrative misconduct" or
"with teaching false doctrine and administrative misconduct"

Later one (i.e B) says he was charged with teaching false doctrine and teaching adminstrative misconduct, totally distorting the meaning of the sentence.

I had narrowed it down to A or B and had the same question with the 2 statements you have listed above ... thanks for your explanation, it helps a lot.
