GMATBACKBELT,

"The majority of STUDENTS" must be followed by "are." However, "student majority" is the one which must be followed by "is." because "student", in this case, is an adjective modifying majority. hope that helps

B it is - expected to be - idiomatic, a trend that will ultimately place- correct tense (future),

Picked B.

'a trend ultimately placing' incorrect in A
'women, which will ultimately place' incorrect in B.
D & E are in passive voice. Eliminate.

'trend ultimately placing' - incorrect, this would require a future tense..

Hence 'B' fits the bill....
