Without hearing a word of what is being said or shouted, an experienced trader on the floor of the stock exchange can listen to the hum of voices around them and tell what is happening.

The non-underlined part has "them". So the underlined part should have a plural object. Here the plural object is "experienced traders"

Quote:
(A) Without hearing a word of what is being said or shouted, an experienced trader

This can be eliminated comfortably as an experienced trader cannot listen to hum of voices around them. ELIMINATED
Quote:
(B) Without hearing a word of what is being said or shouted, experienced traders

Precise and best among the lot. CORRECT
Quote:
(C) Even though the person has not heard a word of what is being said or shouted, an experienced trader

same error as in option A. ELIMINATED
Quote:
(D) Even when the person has not heard a word that is being said or shouted, experienced traders

the first part is saying the person and it is referring to experienced traders. Pronoun error. ELIMINATED
Quote:
(E) In spite of not hearing a word of what is being said or shouted, an experienced trader

same error as in option A. ELIMINATED

OPTION: B

The clue to look for is the Highlighted part in the non underlined section, which suggests that the Underlined portion must have a Plural subject.....

Thus, correct Answer must be (B)
