I will go with C.
Permit ...to should be a right idiom.
"employers...will realize" makes a complete sentence.

C.

clearly the choices are between C and D. D is little awakward as it says "between the responsibilities of home and work".

so C wins.

Thanks for reminding the idiom "permit to". I did miss it.

More questions.

Which is better between "benefits which" and "benefits that" and why ?

Or are both allowed here without any difference ?

should be that because that is used for restrictive clause where as which is non-restrictive clause. also in general we need coma before which where as coma is not necessary before that.

Hello Ashkg,

I chose C, because that suits the answer choice better than which.

Let me explain the use of that vs.which from my SC notes

That vs. Which
That refers to a subset of a group. â€œWhichâ€

(A) which permit that employees can balance home and work responsibilities better, realizing
(B) which permit employees balancing home and work responsibilities better will realize
(C) that permit employees to balance the responsibilities of home and work better will realize
(D) that permit employees a better balance between the responsibilities of home and work, thus realizing
(E) such that employees are permitted a balance between home and work responsibilities, and they will realize

Ans C, that permit employees to balance the responsibilities of home and work better will realize............
That (restrictive) should be used in place of which (non restrictive)

use of idiom PERMIT TO ..is correct.
