Is the placement of did in option E correct ? Is it not better to place it before the word people ?

Hi Kyuss,

Here is D in full:

A recent study, published by the California Bureau of Employment, found that people who sent in resumes with “ethnic-sounding” names had a much more difficult time getting called back from employers than those who did send in resumes showing similar qualifications but with “white-sounding” names.

I've highlighted the problem area. Here it is essentially a question of what makes sense. "those who did send in" is just incredibly awkward in English.

Hi

I understand that as its a comparison , so use of than is required but what are the issues with option C.

here those does not have a clear antecedent, so it can be removed.
In the option E, than the people removed this error ... and i think that the the did is misplaced

I too am not convinced with the placement of did inn option E. This placement also kills parallelism.. sentence says.. A recent study, published by the California Bureau of Employment, found that people who sent in blah had a much more difficult time getting called back from employers than people didwho sent in blah
I choose C as the correct answer, but the OE says that there is a missing 'with' before the but.. that makes sense in hindsight.
