The intention of the original sentence is to give information about the audience attending the seminar. The original intent is to show that
Quote:
not everyone
Quote:
,( i.e. some people in the audience may have known but a lot of people in the audience did not know) who attended the seminar
Quote:
knew
about the new theories of quantum mechanics.

Based on the intent we can eliminate choices B,C & D. The choice is between A & E.

Choice "A"- The underlined portion- for not everyone in attendance was knowledgeable is followed by "THAT". Dissect the underlined portion to see that was is a verb followed by knowledgeable, which is an adjective, followed by that. Normally an adjective such as knowledgeable is followed with a preposition. For example- Martha is quite knowledgeable in quantum physics. Moreover, choice E- "for not everyone attending knew" is clearer as the present participle- attending, is followed by a verb- knew.

Therefore, choice E seems appropriate.

Please, let me know the OA.

The question must be:

1) underlined
2) well formatted
2) must have the OA and possibly the OE

thanks you

Since the context is in past we need past tense . Between B and E , E hold the intended meaning as not everyone (some) is not same as 'everyone not'. Therefore correct answer is E.
