Official Solution:

Widely known to be the Ten Commandments, the Decalogue, mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, are commandments those the Bible describes as having been given to the Israelites by God at biblical Mount Sinai.

A. to be the Ten Commandments, the Decalogue, mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, are commandments those the Bible describes as having been
B. as the Ten Commandments, the Decalogue, mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, is a set of commandments those the Bible describes as being
C. to be the Ten Commandments, the Decalogue had been mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, and it described them as being
D. as the Ten Commandments, the Decalogue, mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, is a set of commandments that the Bible describes as having been
E. to be the Ten Commandments, the Decalogue, mentioned twice in the Hebrew Bible, first at Exodus 20:1–17, and then at Deuteronomy 5:4–21, are those that the Bible describes as having been


A. The idiom known to be is inappropriate. For naming, known as is correct usage. Decalogue is a set of commandments and is thus singular; the verb are does not match with the singular subject the Decalogue.

B. The participle being given is wrongly used to refer to an action that happened in the past; having been given is better.

C. The idiom known to be is inappropriate. The use of the verb had been in incorrect. The sentence implies that the action mentioned happened before the action described. The participle being is incorrect.

D. Correct. Fixes the problems above: the idiom known as is correctly used. The verb is correctly refers to the singular subject Decalogue. The participle having been is correctly used.

E. The idiom known to be is inappropriate. The verb are does not match with the singular subject the Decalogue.


Answer: D

Why "having been given" is correct in option D?
Thanks.

IMO every option is incorrect here.
Can you please check here.
A and E - The Decalogue is a set, So we need Singular Verb - OUT
B and C - Being is used for temporary conditions - OUT

But in D - The latter part after commandments has a THAT, Which refers to commandments and thus the verb should be Plural.

Please can you confirm if i am right.

GMATNinja,

Seems this questions is not discussed more. I have question around option B and D around which I was hovering. First of all could you please help with usage of 'being' in general and over here ? Is 'being' is used only for present action and which form of verb and tense it represents ? And then second question is around option B in which use of 'those' sounds more appropriate than 'that' in option D. But Am I correct in understanding that GMAT does not prefer 'those' in general in OA ?

Thanks - Navinash.
