Verbal tip: The word "BEING":
The word "being"does not necessarily mean that the option in sentence correction is wrong. The placement of the word and the punctuation matters most. If the word "being"is at the beginning of a sentence then the option may be correct. If the word "being" is in the middle of the sentence, then also the option may be correct provided there is a comma before the word "being". All other constructions are likely to be wrong.
