Question Stats:

In the fall of 1985, only 10 percent of the women entering college planned to major in eduction, while 28 percent chose business, making it the most popular major for women as well as for men.

A) as well as for men
B) as well as the men
C) and men too
D) and men as well
E) and also men

[Reveal] Spoiler: OE
Two elements connected by a coordinate conjunction should be expressed in parallel form. Only A, the best
choice, correctly observes this rule (the most popular major for women as well as for men). B, C, D, and E
omit the necessary/or in the second element. In addition, by using the simple coordinate conjunction and, C, D,
and E create the illogical impression that the decision of 28 percent of the women entering college in 1985 to
choose business as a major also made the major the most popular among men. The conjunction as well as
implies that business had already been the most popular major for men and that in 1985, for the first time, it
became the most popular major for both sexes.

You need women as well as men.

A should be it.

If we use men AND women, then the sentence means that those 28%of the women who chose business made the business a major for both the groups...

As well as says that it was already a major for men and 28% women after enrolling in the program, made a major for women.

B uses THE MEN... which is wrong comparison.

I would go with A. for women as well as for men. Agree for is unnecessary, but seems more parallel than using "the" in B.

Most popular major for woman [#permalink] New post 26 Aug 2011, 06:39
In the fall of 1985, only 10 percent of the women entering college planned to major in education, while 28 percent chose business, making it the most popular major for women as well as for men.

(A) as well as for men
(B) as well as the men
(C) and men too
(D) and men as well
(E) and also men - would it have been preferred choice, had it been "and the men" only :?:

to me for in option A seemed little redundant :?

Any idea folks :|

A..as well as is correct


(A) as well as for men ----- for man is parallel with for women
(B) as well as the men ----- the men is not parallel with Women
(C) and men too ----------
(D) and men as well
(E) and also men

Basically none is as parallel as is option "A"
