The study is recent...so 'have elected' would be right tense form. 'rather than face' is more appropriate than 'facing'.

Hence E.

Choice E.

Should be have instead of had because the retirement is continous. If you use had then the meaning changes and you can infer that the retirement is over...

I think it should C.

In E "rather than to face "would have made it more correct.

I first thought it is a "rather than" vs "instead of" question...

I always have an hard time with this kind of choice. Could someone plz refresh my brain ?

I this case I prefer E

(A) had elected early retirement rather than face
(B) had elected early retirement instead of facing
(C) have elected retiring early instead of facing
(D) have elected to retire early rather than facing
(E) have elected to retire early rather than face


So between C and E...

C) have elected x instead of y. here x = retiring and y = facing....but i don' think the meaning holds...you don't 'elected facing'

E) have elected x rather than y. In this case it's not have elected to x rather than to y. It does not make sense...elected to retire versus 'elected to face'. You have 'have elected' (present perfect) and face (present)...so it's not perfect..but the meaning is not lost.

(A) had elected early retirement rather than face
(B) had elected early retirement instead of facing
(C) have elected retiring early instead of facing
(D) have elected to retire early rather than facing
(E) have elected to retire early rather than face


a) & b) should start with have

c) looks ok to me.

d) have elected to retire early rather than "to" face, not facing

e) same as d) above, "to" is missing

So my answer is C.
