Hi Soumens,

The construction in (E) is fine and is a quite commonly used construction.

Does B have a parallelism or redundancy/wordiness error? If the former, can someone elaborate on the issue? My only observation is that schools (same entities) are compared, for which reason one of the "school" words needs to be omitted.

Hi stoy4o,

Both (B) and (E) are correct, and both express a clear and concise comparison. Just because (E) expresses the same idea in a fewer one it will be a better choice in GMAT.

Yes the same entities are being compared and "schools" can be (not "need" to be) omitted without changing the meaning of the sentence.

Hope it helps,

Vercules
