Nope. Answer is not E.

I think E is a case of false parallelism (I initially chose it too and am trying to identify why its wrong now, although not convincing myself)

Additionally, I think E makes it sounds as if the insurance plans are spending more time with patients, not doctors..

Cant understand what is wrong with E.Also,can you explain how E sounds as if the insurance plans are spending more time ... not doctors..I think it is the case with other options.

D>>Among lower-paid workers, union members are less likely than nonunion members to be enrolled in lower-end insurance plans that impose stricter limits on medical services and require doctors to see more patients, spending less time with each.

I think D is correct because the sentence structure is:

union members are less likely than nonunion members to be enrolled in lower-end insurance plans that impose X and Y, + participial phrase modifying Y.

Upon further review of E, I take back my statement on insurance companies spending less time with patients. HMMM...

The only reason I refute E is because I think D sounds better. Any other ideas??? OA in GMATPrep is D.

Yes this is a tricky one, although E looks to be the best choice, D is the OA according to Gmatprep. Anyone else who can provide reasons on why D and not E is correct??

Will go with D.
Insurance plans impose and require. But the requirement causes the doctors to spend less time with patients.

Selected D coz of parallelism - "that impose stricter limits on medical services and (that) require doctors to see more patients, spending "

for (e) to be in the reckoning, it should be -

that impose stricter limits on medical services, require doctors to see more patients and spend (even then I would probably select D coz it sounds better)

will agree with 'D'

requiring doctors to see ... doesn't modify on medical services but it modifies the plan

It should be ^ D ^

Among lower-paid workers, union members are less likely than nonunion members to be enrolled in lower-end insurance plans that impose stricter limits on medical services and require doctors to see more patients, spending less time with each.

If we use "and" like in E, it spoils the ||lism. It sounds as if it is the insurance plans that spend less time with each patient.

E- that impose stricter limits on medical services, requiring doctors to see more patients and spending

Great explanation Selene.

I think these GMATprep SC Modifier questions are really tricky and wrong answers vary only very slightly from right answers. I think they are more difficult than OG.

On what basis can we say that doctors are spending and not insurance plans??

Insurance plans don't spend time. Its people who spend time.

Let's divide the sentence into parallel parts :

Among lower-paid workers, union members are less likely than nonunion members to be enrolled in

lower-end insurance plans that

impose stricter limits on medical services and

require doctors to see more patients, spending less time with each.

if we think that insurance plans are spending time "each" remains undefined:

lower-end insurance plans that
impose stricter limits on medical services,
require doctors to see more patients,
and spend less times with each.

what is "each" :?: :?:

how does spending less time with each modify doctors? I agree that C can't be it. the plan can send less time with each patient. but how the last phrase logically modify doctors??

B. imposing stricter limits on medical services, requiring doctors to see more patients, and spending

C. that impose stricter limits on medical services, require doctors to see more patients, and spend

D. that impose stricter limits on medical services and require doctors to see more patients, spending

E. that impose stricter limits on medical services, requiring doctors to see more patients and spending


Using POE:
A. A gerund is grammatically correct when it stands after a possessive pronoun, for example: She agrees on my leaving for USA ( She agrees on me leaving for USA is wrong) --> A is out

B. insurance plans imposing...., requiring ...., and spending ... ---> sounds as if the insurance plans spend less time with each (patient) --> out

C. that impose...., require.....,and spend ....---> same error as in B.

E. same error as in B and C.

D seems to contain no evils.
