A. work shows the buildings B. work shows that the buildings were C. works show the buildings D. works show the buildings as being E. works show the buildings to have been OA C Could someone help provide a rundown of each of these answers? I found this question somewhat difficult. I chose answer D, but I don't see what's necessarily wrong with that compared to the actual answer. Thanks! Newbie | Next Rank: 10 Posts Joined 14 Sep 2015 Posted: 7 messages Will keep below three options for subject verb agreement. C. works show the buildings D. works show the buildings as being E. works show the buildings to have been Now - Option D ( Being is redundant ) Option C is crisp and conveys meaning.

In option C, note that being is often incorrect on the GMAT. Following are the scenarios in which it can be correct 1. as a noun 2. passive continuous verb tense - means that the action is currently going on. In the given question, the buildings have already been built. Hence no need for being.
