Re:
  • 1.If the building project ________by the end of this month is delayed, the construction company will be fined.
First, decide what you would put in the blank. Then see which of the options matches your choice. What makes the most sense there is to be completed, meaning that is when construction is scheduled to be finished.

Re:
  • 2.He wasn't appointed chairman of the committee,_____________not very popular with all its members.
What makes the most sense there is because he was. Thus, the sentence would be: "He wasn't appointed chairman of the committee, because he was not very popular with the committee members."

Now, let's look at the options given. They are:
  • A:to be considered B:considering C:being considered D:having considered

The closest to the answer "we" chose is C:being considered, which means they (the committee members) didn't consider him very popular with themselves. It's not a good way of saying it, but it's the best of the choices given.

Does that help?

:)
