The three women, liberal activists who strongly support legislation in favor of civil rights
and environmental protection, have consistently received labor’s unqualifying support.
A. have consistently received labor’s unqualifying support
B. are consistently receiving the unqualifying support of labor
C. have consistently received the unqualified support of labor
D. receive consistent and unqualified support by labor
E. are receiving consistent and unqualified support by labor

What is the difference between "labor’s unqualifying support" and "unqualifying support of labor"?
Both the phrases describe the type of support. I am not able to figure out if the phrases change the meaning of the sentence.

Whats the correct idiom here? Support by or support of...

I guess its support of is the correct usage....

I am going for A as a and C are in past tense...only B keeps the whole sentence in the present.

D, E- out...support by

Thoughts?

A. have consistently received labor’s unqualifying support
B. are consistently receiving (change in tense) the unqualifying support of labor
C. have consistently received the unqualified support of labor
D. receive (change in tense) consistent and unqualified support by labor
E. are receiving (change in tense) consistent and unqualified support by labor

(C) for me

The phrases "labor's unqualifying support" and "unqualifying support of labor" don't change the meaning of the sentence. However, the former sounds incorrect (should've been "received the labor's unqualifying support")

unqualified support of labor seems to hv negative connotation. Not sure if qualifying can be replaced by unqualified.

The OA is C.

Here is my attempt to explain the OA:

D,E -> out - support by labor

The SC seems to convey teh women received unconditional support.The word "unqualified" seems to convey that meaning.
A,B -> out

C wins

Also we dont need present progressive . B can be ruled out for that reason as well

I got C as well.

C sounds more active, plus the adjective (unqualified) I beleive has to come before the noun which it modifies Labor. Thus my reasoning. Option B changes the tense of the sentence which is not ideal in this case.

Option A sounds passive Labor's unqualifying support which is wrong. The active is preferred.

But doesnt unqualified support negate the meaning?This gives a negative meaning to support.

+1 C

It keeps the meaning because it keeps the tense.
"unqualifying" is ilogical. It means that labor is performing the action of unqualifying something. In this case, we want to describe labor; therefore, we need an adjective in passive voice.

C. The word "consistently" means that it has been done in the past and is an ongoing action, So "have" is necessary.
