The OA is B.

It cant be C. Who is "their" referring to?

In this case "their" is referring to the Blue Collar's pay when it should be referring to the CEO's pay.

Improper referent.

So B.



that, on average, CEO’s now earn 419 times the pay of blue-collar workers, as compared to 42 times their pay, the ratio

their pay = blue-collar workers' pay = pay of the blue-collar workers

that, on average, CEO’s now earn 419 times the pay of blue-collar workers, as compared to 42 times their pay (pay of the blue-collar workers), the ratio
