nothing wrong with D.
something wrong with B.
in B, "entering" take the time of "are" so, it is in present but "this fall" show future. this is not fit. no logic. wrong.
in D
"placing" take time of "will be" so, it is in future time . this is logic. no thing wrong.

mistake in official question?


The problem with D (use of the present participle "placing") has already been explained in the post above:
women-are-expected-to-be-the-majority-of-students-entering-82261-40.html#p1769667

As for B, it is true that a present participle in general gets its tense from the main verb of the sentence. However this example shows that GMAT allows exception of this rule, and therefore we may conclude that this rule should not be used to eliminate a choice.

D It is expected that the majority of students entering law school this fall will be women, a trend ultimately placing
E It is expected for the women to be the majority of students entering law school this fall, which will ultimately place

please explain your reasoning ...


3/2 Rule: "placing" V.S "place" , "place" is right --> rule out A & D
"Which" after the comma refers to women --> wrong --> rule out C & E
The choice left is B


That was awesome
IMO its B for me

Women are expected to be the majority of students entering law school this fall, a trend ultimately placing more women in leadership position in politics and business.

There is a difference in meaning:
(1) 'Women are expected to be......'
(2) 'The majority of students entering law school this fall are expected to be women'

The first sentence shows that it is expected from women to be a majority of total students entering law school. That really does not make sense.
The second sentence is more like a projection which makes sense in the CONTEXT of this sentence.

Choice B is correct.

In what cases will 'majority' (as a subject) be singular/plural ?

Women are expected to be the majority of students entering law school this fall, a trend ultimately placing more women in leadership position in politics and business.
A Women are expected to be the majority of students entering law school this fall, a trend ultimately placing
B The majority of students entering law school this fall are expected to be women, a trend that will ultimately place
C The majority of students entering law school this fall are expected to be women, which will ultimately place
D It is expected that the majority of students entering law school this fall will be women, a trend ultimately placing
E It is expected for the women to be the majority of students entering law school this fall, which will ultimately place

which is referring to women and fall in C and E .So they are out
In trend ultimately placing in D also not correct
In A Women is the subject of the sentence and later part we are talking about a trend .....
So A is also out

B is the best answer
