D vs. E

I pick E... because the unemployement decreased the the "lowest level" not to a "low" level

D is wrong but E is a little bit weird to me that
it sense of taking time, 2 years, to lowest level
rather than The lowest level of period 2 years

But anyway I pick E :)

same here. D or E. E sounds better though. It would be interesting to know the OA/OE.

Hmm, as with everyone else, D vs E.
But i want to choose D.

I would have been really happy if the sentence were
decrease in unemployment level to a two year low
But i am happy with moving 'level' around a little.
decrease in unemployment to a two year low level

I will go with E. We need to use 'sperlative' form as the comparision is between more than two months (24 months).

D, I think...

'two year low' is idiomatic and means 'lowest level in two years'...

Will go with E.

IMO Lowest level in two years is better than two year low level.

It was easy to eliminate all but D & E in this case, and E was the only one that made sense.
