grammar

please correct this sentence:

A)HOPEFULLY, we B)WILL BE able to complete the building C)BEFORE the rainy seas sets D)IN. E)NO ERROR

i already know the answer is A, but i'm not sure why. can u please explain, thanks.


I believe the writer means when the "rainy season sets in."


Some grammar experts do not accept the use of "hopefully" in this sentence. They argue that "hopefully" means "in a hopeful manner," and doesn't mean "it is hoped."

Check out this more elaborate explanation of the usage of "hopefully."
