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

(C) using the companies’ earnings and profiting
(D) with the company’s earnings, profiting
(E) with the companies’ earnings and to profit[/quote]

B,C,D are out becuse the sentence say hoping to pay ,,,,hoping to profit,,,,,,,thus profiting is wrong
ok im up with A and E,
A is out becuse it says company's which mean just 1 company!!!!!

thus E is best

investor hope to pay off the debt and to profit.. is parallel. C and D are out.

hoping to pay off with the companie's earning is correct. 'by using' is not as concise.

E it is.
