Tough choice between C/E. My pick would be C. Can someone explain why one is better than the other.

B can't be right as it alters the meaning of the sentence. The exigencies of dramatic art STILL continue to make the forshortening of etc....The use of "made" makes it sound like the event has come and gone (finished).

I go for (C). And (D) and (E) are out because the alter the meaning of the sentence because of the Word Placement "inevitable". "Makes the foreshortening inevitable" is different than "inevitably foreshortening"

Got C.
E is out as exigencies is plural and E uses "foreshortens".

C too, E only other close choice - but out on the use of forshortens.

Answer is C because "exigencies" follows with "make" without an "s"

OK, so there's nothing wrong with B, but the tense.

I got it! choosing B would have changed the meaning of the original sentence, what we have to avoid.
