A does not sound right to me. I see a difference in the tense used between "made" and "would".


D for me. OA please.

Though A can be further improved, it is the best of the given options.

A for me too.

Sonaketu, E changes the meaning completely.It says that the ground swell of public opinion made the 'approval' of the senate 'inevitable' of ....Also im not sure whether 'inevitable of' is the correct idiom.Approval needs to refer to energy proposals.

A says that the ground swell of public opinion made the "situation" inevitable for the senate that they would approve the energy proposals.

I hope i make sense. :suspect

Best.

OA is A

The OE is that we need to put THAT after inevitable, so we are left with A and B. Had means, it has already been done. The sentence should mean that they would.

The ground swell of public opinion made it inevitable that the Senate would approve the president’s energy proposals.
(A) it inevitable that the Senate would approve
(B) it inevitable that the Senate had approved
(C) it inevitable of the Senate to approve
(D) inevitable the approval of the Senate of
(E) the approval of the Senate inevitable of

OA:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
A

OE:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
You can say “It was inevitable that I would miss my
bus.”But you can’t say “It was inevitable of me to miss
my bus.”You need “that.” (B) says that it’s “inevitable”
that the Senate had approved the proposals, past
tense. But something that’s already happened can’t be
said to be inevitable.

I think it is D

A "it" has no clear referent
B "it" has no clear referent
C "it" has no clear referent
D CORRECT
E Is is ambiguous. It seems that "The ground swell of public opinion made the approval"

I also go for A.
However, I also was inclined for the option with usage "inevitable of the Senate to"...I think I have read something like "inevitable of"...but I am not sure...so A :)

Updated the OA and OE.

In this case, IMO, 'would' is 'the past tense of will'.

"Would" should be used to express future from the point of view of past.

As per the example you mentioned in OE
It was inevitable that I would miss my
bus. - Would is used to express future from the point of view of past however in the above sentence , however we making sure that this usage of "would" is correct.

how is the sentence mentioned in the question is in the past tense? please explain

OE says:
It was inevitable that I would miss my bus.
==> It implies that there was no probability of catching the bus with the conditions in the past.
Past Events : The conditions
Future Event with respect to the past: Catching/Missing the bus


The ground swell of public opinion made it inevitable that the Senate would approve the president’s energy proposals it inevitable that the Senate would approve.
Past Events: Public opinions
Future Event with respect to Past: Senate's Approval on the Energy proposal.
