    This is not homework. I'm just asking a question whose correct answer made me confused.

    D) in accord. I thought in the process would best complete the sentence.

    Re: Which one of the following best complete the sentence?

    You're right. D is completely incorrect. A is the only natural answer.

    In future, with questions like this, please tell us what you think the right answer is and why, and tell us what answer was given in the book/test. Otherwise, it looks like you're just trying to get us to give you the answers.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Which one of the following best complete the sentence?

    The union is either the Steelworkers' or the Steelworkers (with no apostrophe). If the apostrophe is placed before the s, it reads like a union of a single steelworker.

    Re: Which one of the following best complete the sentence?

    On second thought, if the spekear tries to say the steelworker's union managed to secure further pension rights for its members without any conflict with the new administration, would you think in accord does sound natural?

    Re: Which one of the following best complete the sentence?

    I can think of only one sentence that can end with in accord. I just wrote it.
