look at the sentence from this point of view:

A new hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price, ....................... the drug’s maker charges for another product with the same active ingredient.

so we need a word that clearly connects two parts, modifying price.
the correct answer here is that (C)

the price that the ....

hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price as the drug’s maker charges(edited)

three times the price as the drug’s maker price

A&B has a similar prob......
is three time more or less than drug makers price?

E is out doesnt even match.

its between

C&D

ill choose C because three times the price of what drug makers are selling (would be more better and apt)

A new hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price, per milligram, _______ the drug’s maker charges for another product with the same active ingredient.

A.) as - if we put 'as' in the blank then we need another clause for comparing the price of hair-growth drug. A new drug is sold for 3 times the price, as the maker charges for another product.


B.) than - A new drug is sold for 3 times the price, than the maker charges for another product.

C.) that - A new drug is sold for 3 times the price, that the maker charges for another product.

D.) of what - A new drug is sold for 3 times the price, of what the maker charges for another product.


E.) at which - A new drug is sold for 3 times the price, at whichthe maker charges for another product.

+1 C

A.) as - It doesn't make sense. The maker is not charging while the new drug is being sold.

B.) than - Wrong. There is not a comparison in this sentence.

C.) that - Correct. "That" refers to "the price".

D.) of what - ackward.

E.) at which - ackward.

I think I deserve kudos ;)

D... because the way it is usually said is "sold for three times of what other stores charge for the same thing." Try putting these in other daily scenarios..

First off -- make sure you understand the meaning of the sentence. What is the author trying to convey?

In simple language ---> There is a new product. The manufacturer of this new product is selling it for 3 times the price of another product (also produced by the same manufacturer). Both these products contain the same ingredients.

Look at choice D closely --

"A new hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price, per milligram, of which the drug’s maker charges for another product with the same active ingredient".

"Of which" here --> in a sense refers to a price of a price.

An easier approach would be to ignore the "per milligram" modifier.

"A new hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price OF WHICH the drug’s maker charges for another product with the same active ingredient".

Choice D does not convey the intended meaning of the sentence.

I go with C.

Look at the sentence and ignore per milligram.

A new hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price....the drug’s maker charges for another product with the same active ingredient.

That fits in nicely. The rest are awkward.
