The answer should be "E". Most clear and most logical.
in "D", what is the referent for "it". it is wordy, awkward and absolutely unclear.

"it" can't be a modifier of "economists" [#permalink] New post 23 Dec 2007, 00:38

I also agree with correct answer as E.

D) is wrong, becoz at first it says "...it controls most...",which indicates, according to this answer, economists, which is incorrect. Because "it" can't be a modifier of "economists", which one indicates as PERSON. so modifier "it" should not be used.
