(A) by using the company’s earnings and to profit - IMO A

(B) by using the companies’ earnings and by profiting - Parallelism fails to pay off ... to profit.

(C) using the companies’ earnings and profiting - requires the much needed 'by' and fails parallelism.

(D) with the company’s earnings, profiting - Profiting is not parallel.Also the verb needs to be separated by an 'and'.

(E) with the companies’ earnings and to profit - Pay off debt by seems better.

IMO A.

amit2k9..everything you did is correct...only missed the significance of apostrophe.

E is the answer. companies' is required instead of company's.

I personally don't think that there's a difference between the two. I think the trick here is to recognize the difference between company's and companies'

(A) by using the company’s earnings and to profit
(B) by using the companies’ earnings and by profiting (parallelism fails)
(C) using the companies’ earnings and profiting (parallelism fails)
(D) with the company’s earnings, profiting
(E) with the companies’ earnings and to profit (as if along with debt pay off company earning)


wats the OA ????????

feel as if none of the answer choices are correct - using companies's and to profit (parallel with 'to pay off') is needed i feel
