verbal review sc:
43.

the answer is B. But what does it mean by "it has come to signify..."? doesn't it sound wordy?

Yes, the answer is B. In A and E, their is used incorrectly to define the term graphic design. Eliminate A and E. In C, the past tense is incorrect , the tone of the passage is to suggest that something fresh is happening. Eliminate C. Same in D. In D , have suggested is also incorrect, present perfect is not needed here.

B clearly defines the new additions or changing functions of the job. Hence B wins.

I am not sure what is your exact question. However, I am writing here the problems with option C.

First of all, "has signified" means that the action is already complete; but the intended meaning of the sentence requires present tense so that the contrast can be proper.
Second problem with option C is that "widely ranging work" is incorrect -- correct form would be "wide range of work".
