Stuck between C and E.

But E sounds better...

I always get stuck with questions like these " rather than" vs "rather than that of". I am not very clear about when to use the later....

what is the OA and could somebody explain....

Hi well I used to have the same problems with Pronon referant. Ok I will try to explain it ... well won't be from any grammar book or .. anything it's just logic what I have developed from ETS questions.

Ok whenever you have PRONOUN do the following things:

1. Try to match it with with a preceding NOUN.-->very basic step
2. Drop the PRONOUN and check if the sentence makes sense or not.
3.try to CHECK if the pronounis REDUNDANT or not.
4. Though eliminate any stentence with pronoun AMBIQUITY BUT if any other sentence doesn't "SOUND" good go back and check the "PRONOUN
ambi" OPTION and check the Logical structure and Logical referant if the sentence is CLEAR you can opt for it.

Generaly, you will only have to use the 4th step for THE MOST DIFFICULT questions.

ok apply the step#2,3 and check if THAT is needed or not--->

what does "that" refer to DAYS, MINIMUM, TRAVEL...? WHAT nothing just redundant so we don't require that.

Option E is the best.

Disclaimer: The above mentioned views are just my THOUGHTS

Well so if we try all the following steps in the ABOVE question

A and B can be eliminated because of the use of unnecessary 'and'

Eliminate C for using 'rather than that of ' - wordy, and that does not point to anything.

Left with D and E. I think E is preferrable as we are talking about time.
Also, the use of 'to X from Y' in D is a suspect. The idiom is 'from X to Y'

Great explanation. :b:
In C "that" refers to "minimum", but is unnecessary.
D also is wrong with "from 7 day minimum to 14", comparing minimum with a number.
