Five of the committee members

by BTGmoderatorDC » Wed Oct 11, 2017 2:52 am
Five of the committee members will be unable to attend the meeting due to the severity of the snow storm, so I suggest that it be postponed until a later time.
a) so I suggest that it be postponed until a later time
b) therefore I suggest that the meeting should be cancelled until another time
c) and my suggestion is to be postponing the meeting until a better time
d) for which at another time we can be having it
e) thereby it ought to be postponed until a more safe time

In this sentence, what is the best Option to answer? Why Option A isn't the right answer?

OA B

B cannot be the OA.
B is basically two independent clauses joined without an appropriate connector such as "semicolon" or "and", an error known as comma splice.

Furthur, GMAC avoids the first-person pronoun, such as 'i'.
Whats the source?
