Writing question! "X lost 70 % of its subscribs since 1920 and, ..."
[Despite] its cultural importance, the Daily Gazette [lost] 70 % of its subscribers since 1920 and, by 1955, [was losing] [as much] as $200,000 a year. [No error]
I selected C "was losing" because i thought it was inconsistent with the "lost" in the beginning, but apparently the answer is B.
Is it because you can't "lose" something since 1920 but have to be "losing" 70% since some time? please explain!
