      D B & C Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      E None of these Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

      Solution

      B- To maintain the grammatical consistency of the sentence, ‘being accountable’ should be replaced by ‘accountability’(noun). D- ‘Tardy’ which is an adjective does not fit contextually in this part of the sentence and should be replaced by the noun ‘tardiness’. The sentence talks about the ‘tardiness’ of the criminal justice system. Correct Sentence: While welcoming this rare blow for accountability and justice, it is inevitable that one must lament the tardiness of the criminal justice system.
