(A) they were forced to move to a suburb bordering the city from their apartment

(B) they had been forced to move from their apartment to a suburb that bordered the city

(C) they were forced to move from their apartment to a suburb bordering the city

(D) they having been forced to, moved from their apartment to a suburb that bordered the city

(E) they withdrew, because they were forced to, from their apartment to a suburb bordering the city




(A) they were forced to move to a suburb bordering the city from their apartment
The highlighted part does not convey the intended meaning
It can be conveyed in a better way

(B) they had been forced to move from their apartment to a suburb that bordered the city
The past perfect continuous states a continued action that started , continued , and stopped in the past.
The sentence normally includes a time reference to show when the action started in the past.
Imo - we do not need a continuous

(C) they were forced to move from their apartment to a suburb bordering the city
This statement conveys the meaning better than A does.

(D) they having been forced to, moved from their apartment to a suburb that bordered the city
The structure is pretty awkward
having been is indirect , we have a better option in C

(E) they withdrew, because they were forced to, from their apartment to a suburb bordering the city
normally we would say withdrew from gambling , but withdrew here does not make any sense

Imo
C

+1 for C.

(A) they were forced to move to a suburb bordering the city from their apartment --> Idiomatically awkward "To X From Y"

(B) they had been forced to move from their apartment to a suburb that bordered the city --> Verb-Tense error

(C) they were forced to move from their apartment to a suburb bordering the city --> Correct, rectifies Verb-Tense error and Idiomatically sound "From X To Y"

(D) they having been forced to, moved from their apartment to a suburb that bordered the city --> Verb-Tense error

(E) they withdrew, because they were forced to, from their apartment to a suburb bordering the city --> Redundant

Hence, C.

The Jukes family lost all of their money gambling, and they were forced to move to a suburb bordering the city from their apartment.


(A) they were forced to move to a suburb bordering the city from their apartment
from...to.... format seems logical

(B) they had been forced to move from their apartment to a suburb that bordered the city
had been shows this event have occured before they lost their money gamlbling..

(C) they were forced to move from their apartment to a suburb bordering the city
CORRECT were is correctly used, From... to.... correctly used, and "bordering the city" correctly modify "a suburb"

(D) they having been forced to, moved from their apartment to a suburb that bordered the city

(E) they withdrew, because they were forced to, from their apartment to a suburb bordering the city[/quote]
unnecessarily worded and complex, so eliminated

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The first verb in the sentence is in the past. The past perfect in B is incorrect as the moving did not take place before the losing. The verb form ‘having been forced to’ in D is incorrect. The placement of ‘from their apartment’ in C is much better than in A. C is shorter and simpler than E. C is correct.
