I supprise that why B is the choice here?

The second part of the sentence is, I think, an explaination to why the industry changed. So it should be an independent clause that starts by "as" + S(companies" + main Verb (conducted).

If "that" added will make the sentense runs on.

What do you think? 3 of you!

Try eliminating the middle man to understand it better

<blah> industry has changed <blah> as <blah> companies <blah blah> have greatly downsized <blah>

Now try fitting in the <blah blah> part
<blah> industry has changed <blah> as <blah> companies that once used to <blah> have greatly downsized <blah>

Hope this helps

Million Thanks to bsd_lover,
That is my weakness, I keep my eyes too quikly on, even do not read almost of the sentence.

Thanks again!

A. as large, integrated companies such as Bethlehem Steel
B. as large, integrated companies, such as Bethlehem Steel, that
C. with large, integrated companies, such as Bethlehem Steel, that
D. while large, integrated companies, such as Bethlehem Steel, that
E. and large, integrated companies such as Bethlehem Steel

What is the OA ??

A. wrong - "that" is required for the verb "conducted" -- that .. conducted ...companies ...have downsized...
B. Correct - "that" is present --- "as" gives reason of why the industry has changed.
C. wrong --- decades with large -- does not make sense.
D. wrong - while gives an impression that the industry change and companies downsize happen together. this does not highlight the cause and affect relationship
E. wrong - "that" is absent --- no cause and affect relationship.
