Step1. Between x to y is wrong idiom; drop And C.
Step 2. Among B, D and E, B is using a comma after recession to join two independent clauses. This is a style error.
Step. 3. Bouncing back is a process that started sometime after the 2002 low and one that is still going on. Therefore the right tense will be a present perfect here, i.e. ‘has bounced’ Choice D is preferable to E

it should be between d and e. I prefer E because of simple tense, but with while it can be a present perfect.

1.was bouncing back from its 2002 low, U.S. families are still reeling from the recent recession; between .... needs "and".... "not to"
2.bounced back from its 2002 low, U.S. families are still reeling from the recent recession, from
3.has bouncedbounced back from its 2002 low, U.S. families are still reeling from the recent recession; between .... needs "and".... "not to"
4.has bounced back from its 2002 low, U.S. families are still reeling from the recent recession; from . . . rightly matches with to (idiom)
5.bounced back from its 2002 low, U.S. families are still reeling from the recent recession; from

will go with D
use of 'has' bounced parallels with 'are' reeling.. . 'bounced' would have been read as "while the stock market bounced" initiating a thought that 'while it was bounced' something is to happen in parallel; whereas author is talking about comparison in current scenario; now that it has bounced - but still families are suffering - this is a sequence and not parallel activity.

hope i make sense!

two issues:

(i) Fix the idiom - "from x to y" or "between x and y" ....... Eliminate A and C.
(ii) Tense - keep the tenses close to each other when possible.......... Eliminate B and E.

That's D.

We need perfect tense here.

I mark as D

if you scan there is split between from and between

if you see non underline part 2001 to 2004, it will be from so a,c out
again it says us families are still reeling , some thing happened in past and present now so Present perfect ; hence choose D

excellent explanation!
god..it looks like i forgot some of the idioms..need to repeat all of them ASAP
I eliminated A, B, and E because of the tense for the subject stock market. since the non-underlined portion uses X to Y, we can't use between, therefore D is the best.

Hi mikemcgarry,

We use present perfect when something is ongoing from past or the result is still ongoing for something that finished in past. But here author clearly states that stock market bounced back that is result of it is not ongoing. So, why is present perfect better than simple present.

Thanks
