Q.

Once a hurricane is identified, it is given a name from a list drawn up by the United States Weather Service, a list that is reused after a few years, but with the names of the worst hurricanes omitted.

 A.

but with the names of the worst hurricanes omitted 

 B.

omitting the names of the worst hurricanes

 C.

the names of the worst hurricanes being omitted

 D.

after they have omitted the names of the worst hurricanes 

 E.

after omitting the worst hurricane names

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(A) is correct

It is easy to eliminate D because ‘they’ is without an antecedent. E is also clearly wrong because it suggests the names are ‘worst’ rather than the hurricanes.

There is no need to introduce ‘being’ and so eliminate C. Of choices A and B we will select A since it is clearest. B leaves us questioning ‘who is omitting?’
