GMAT Plus Book 2 Problem #44 [#permalink]  18 Dec 2004, 20:15
Statisticians studying the health effect of uranium mining on Navajo communities have found other besides miners and mill workers to be affected; birth defects, childrenâ€™s cancer, and altered birth ratios of males and females are much higher in mining than in non-mining communities.

(A) children's cancer, and altered birth ratios of males and females are much higher
(B) cancer among children, and altered male and female ratios at birth are much higher
(C) cancer among children, and altered birth ratios of males and females occur much more frequently
(D) altered birth ratios of males and females, and childrenâ€™s cancer are much higher
(E) altered male and female ratios at birth, and cancer among children occur much more

(C)
"occur much more" correct
"altered male and female ratios at birth" (E) wrong

I would also pick C. "Cancer among Children" is better than "children's cancer". => A and D out. "At birth is wrong" => B and E out.

The choice is between C and E, we are talking about occurences, but I think C is more correct than E because you need frequently to quantify how often it occurs. That was the best reason I could come up with.
