E is the right choice.

All the options are wordy....except E. E is concise and idiomatic.

Any solid explanations on why AC A is wrong besides the fact that is sounds awful?

"for (the) determination/determining" is bad idiom. "to determine" is correct. Eliminate A,B,C,D

In one second you can see that the answer is E.

Can someone point out the gramatical flaw in AC A.

B, C are eliminated becuase of "whether or not". The "or not" is redudant.

Between A, D, and E, we can figure out that AC "E" sounds good to the ear. But are there any grammer errors in AC A and D?

In AC "A" meeting is used as a verb in the continuous tense. I guess this changes the meaning. "meeting" in this context is neither a gerund or a participle.

I'd be curious to know why A and D are wrong.

we need supercat, paul and others to clearify in detail why A is not correct. but A clearly is not concise and clear.

. for determination is not correct, A is indirect.

. to determine is correct, E is direct.....

so E is better over A.

A is wrong.

We need a plain PRESENT TENSE here not a PRESENT CONTINUOUS tense.

A says " task force is reviewing.... they are meeting the requirements".

Task force is in process of reviewing of What? Reviewing that the hiring practices (already set forth) meet the requirements (already set forth) of the EOU.

Infact A is weird construction " for the determination of "....

My answer is E.

I was essentially looking for a choice that starts with "to", because the correct idiom for "the companyâ€™s hiring practices " is "to". D is wrong, because, it doesn't start with to.

A is wrong because they has no clear referent.
