This question is from the Brutal SC, a source which is highly dubious. GMAT instructors normally discourage on practicing Brutal SC questions as those are mostly flawed.

Is D the right answer because the verb is parallel to "give?" I guessed B but I can see how D is the better answer if its all about keep the verbs straight.

Introducing a new computer product or process by a year earlier
c. A year's advantage to introduce a new computer product or process
d. To introduce a new computer product or process by a year earlier
e. Being a year ahead in introducing a new computer product or process

Vishnu,

I chose D. I am no expert in Verbal but below are my reasons explanation in eliminating B & E.

E. Being a year ahead --- Who is being a year ahead is not clear? "Company" do come after the verb "can" and is not the subject.

B for almost the same reason as E.

Re: A year advantage in a new computer product or process being [#permalink] New post 14 Jan 2014, 22:20
answer is E.

Reason:

To do x ,, it's infinitive of purpose and can not be used in this context

"being" is eschewed when it refers to self or to define a state of being. For example: Being a father, i love my son. here the use of "being" is wrong.

E is the better choice among all.

In B "earlier" is the issue as mentioned in above posts.

Thanks

Here's my two cents

A year advantage in a new computer product or process being introduced can give a company a significant edge on its competitors.

A) A year advantage -- incorrect form

B) Introducing... can --- ing form of verb should use "will" instead of "can" because it is talking about the future .

C) A year's advantage ... --- what's the advantage ? !!

D) To introduce .....can... --- simple tense used with "can" , for example : To wash hands before having food can eliminate certain harmful bacteria .

E) Same as B) , you cannot use -ing form here with can , it is talking about a possibility ,not surety.
