+1 for E

(A) speculate if the company, swift to take offense might have been --> If is incorrect

(B) speculate if the company, swift to take offense had been

(C) speculate if, in its swiftness to take offense the company was

(D) wonder as to whether, in its swiftness to take offense, the company was --> Wrongly placed modifier, this modifier should modify company

(E) wonder whether the company, swift to take offense, was --> Concise and grammatically correct

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Should you use ‘whether’ or ‘if’? There are two alternatives. Either the company was as responsible as the newspaper, or it was not. When there two alternatives it is better to use ‘whether’. Eliminate A, B and C. E is shorter and more efficient than D. Choice E is the correct answer.
