(A) significantly compounding the effects of drug and alcohol abuse, which already are a cost to business of
(B) significantly compounding the effects of drug and alcohol abuse, which already cost business
(C) significantly compounding the effects of drug and alcohol abuse, already with business costs of
(D) significant in compounding the effects of drug and alcohol abuse, and already costing business
(E) significant in compounding the effects of drug and alcohol abuse, and already costs business



Key is "growing"... implies current condition

A has "which already are a cost to business of" => wordy & probably incorrect grammatically

C has "already with business costs of" => changes the meaning implying drug and alcohol are business costs

D has "already costing business" => costing business is incorrect

E has "already costs business" => same as D but plural "costs" instead of "costing"

B is correct because it is concise and meaning is made clear.

Yes B is correct.
D and E are out because 'significantly compounding ' is required.
A and C are out due to reasons as given by haas_mba.

I choose (B) but think it should read "businesses" at the end.

we need to use the adverb form "significantly" instead of "significan"

out of A,B,C , option clearly expresses the idea
