I say B

The program will cost...

(A) incorrect use of "which"... refers to dollars, yet needs to refer to program
(B) The modernization program for the steel mill, hopefully completed in the late 1980â€™s, will cost approximately 51 million dollars.
(C) Modernizing the steel mill, hopefully to be completed in the late 1980â€™s, will cost approximately 51 million dollars. I think "Modernizing... to be completed" is incorrect... it is better if it is a program or modernization to be completed...
(D) again... "which" is wrong as well as the whole sentence is awkward
(E) very awkward... "a program that... will cost" or "modernizing... will cost"?

Hmm..I wasn't aware that hopefully is incorrect in GMAT. Is this something you read somewhere or learned frome experience? Please share with us!

Also in E, should "be completed in the late 1980â€™s" be "be completed by the late 1980â€™s"? Thats why I didn't go with E

Hmm... I thought it is a common knowledge. It is one of the first
things you learn about GMAT English, along with being, so as to, since and others.

Anyway here is the full explanation:

Additionally, pay really close attention to this site. It is extremely close to what considered GMAT English.

since and being are correct on the GMAT, though they tend to be rarely correct.

hopefully is always wrong on the gmat test.
