I don't understand why it's not A. Although the non underlined uses the plural companies, to pay off debt, wouldn't we need the singular company for the underlined portion since you only use a single company's earning?
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.
A. by using the company's earnings and to profit B. by using the companies' earnings and by profiting C. using the companies' earnings and profiting D. with the company's earnings, profiting E. with the companies' earnings and to profit
To maintain //ism, the last part of the answer should be "to profit", therefore just A and E left
"hoping to pay [...] and to profit [...]
Now, between A and E, E seems to be simpler than A, so, E
OA and Source?
I agree with you in point that E is simpler than A.
