I thought C is the best one here. A is wrong and I hope we can see why: by their allocation is so bad.

C contradicts the definition of corporate finance committees in the beginning of the sentence.

(A) is the winner here; not on the basis of adhering to strict grammar rules, but in the manner in which it best conveys the intended meaning of the sentence.

This is one of those tricky oddball "meaning" SCs. CR logic does help for advanced SCs sometimes.

c
Finance committees don't plan A but they make B. Correct format and active voice as well.

GMATT73,

IMO, making strategic judgments is not equal to planning detailed activities of different units. What do you think?

I thought it is A but I am not sure of my reasoning.

Guys correct me if I am wrong

Corporate finance committees do not plan the detailed activities of the various divisions in a large firm, but [do] by their allocation of investment funds they make strategic judgements as to where the firm should expand.

I thought "do" is understood in the sub clause

Trivikram,
The way you have placed the "do" makes the second part a question.
"Do, by X, they make judgments?".
It would make more sense, if the "do" followed "they".

Just my two cents.

I chose A because C changed the meaning of the original sentence. Was my logic right?
