As far as I know, hopefully is almost always wrong on GMAT. This reduces the optiond down to B & E. And clearly the answer is B, IMO

Hopefully is almost always wrong on GMAT and between B & E, it is B.

E uses such as, which is used to list examples Hence B

Where did you guys get that "hopefully" is almost always wrong in the GMAT? I'd like to know the source. Thanks for letting me know.

Is there any justification of the usage of "in the way" ? Any other example of the usage from OG or other reliable source...

The concept that hopefully is always/almost always wrong is incorrect. In this question we got rid of options containing hopefully because those sentences also used "will" along with hopefully. Now its not possible that one thing is sure to happen as well as hopefully to happen.
I guess I made myself clear.

hopefully and use of 'WILL' is redundant

also,,the use of gravity should be properly compared..

narrows down to B and E...

in E use of such as is not right,,,such as is used for examples

ans B

Yes It does.
because when you discard the modifier the rest of the sentence maintains a perfect grammatical flow.
Someone please correct me if i am wrong.
