why not "B" though "increased wages" sounds a bit weird

A too.

150b is used to cover the increase, not the increased final wage.

(B) increased wages it expected to approve from negotiations
(C) increasing wages expected to be approved as a result of negotiating
(D) negotiated increases in wages it expected to approve

D. negotiated increases in wages THAT it expected to approve

I would still not select D. The reason being, in this context "increases in wages" is not usage, "increase in wages" makes more sense.

Re: At the beginning of the year, the city allocated $150 [#permalink] ### Show Tags 03 May 2012, 07:49 A) increase in wages that it expected to approve as a result of negotiations (B) increased wages it expected to approve from negotiations (C) increasing wages expected to be approved as a result of negotiating (D) negotiated increases in wages it expected to approve (E) increases expected to be approved in wages from negotiating B,C are eliminated because the sentence talked about the increase in wage not the wage itself For D, negotiated increase in wage? Does it mean the negotiation has already been done. Eliminated E is just awkward. Re: At the beginning of the year, the city allocated$150   [#permalink] 03 May 2012, 07:49
