In a leveraged buyout, investors borrow huge sums of money to buy companies, hoping to pay off the debt by using the company’s earnings and to profit richly by the later resale of the companies or their divisions.

b) by using the companies earnings and by profiting
c) using the companies’ earning and profiting
d) with the company’s earnings, profiting

The OA is (e). I do know that in the above sentence the correct answer needs to follow the //ism of “to.â€

ForrestGump,

Thank you for your response.I did a further research to understand the difference in the usage of "by" and "with":
-->Both are prepositional words.
--> "by" represents a result of an action.Example will be:
This was acheived by his efforts.
-->Like you have mentioned "with" represents an action that you acheive using the factor.Example will be:
This quilt was bought with the money given by him.

Thus the answer should be (e) as you will pay off the debt with $$.Hope I make sense.Thank you.Rgds,

Anna

Hi Anna,

I think the problem is with company's and companys'.

Company's is singular, where as companys' is plural which matches with the plural forms their division and buy companies.

Hope this helps...

very well put bhimsen, the problem comes from using singular form instead of plural.
