Despite the growing number of people who purchase plane tickets online, airline executives are convinced that, just as one-third of bank customers still prefer human tellers to automatic teller machines, many travelers will still use travel agents.

it is not E) cause "the number" is singular and "are growing" is plural , additionali the structure is "prefer stng TO stng". B) seems the best to me but i am hesitating between A) and B) but anyway will vote for B)

it's a straight (A) for me.

in B,C,D, i expect a 'that' after the 'convince'. without the 'that', it seems as though one-third of the bank customers are also convinced.

(E) has an unidiomatic expression. It should be '...prefer something to another'.

Only A

remove all choices that have "WOULD"

Left with A and C

C has a couple of problems.
Need that after convinced..

when using compared to make sure you use nouns/phrases that make a good and logical comaparison. C lacks that comparison.
