Concept tested: Idioms, Special construction
Difficulty: 650
Illustration: Proper idiomatic construction rules say that
1. Such as is preferred to like
2. Either X or Y is the correct idiomatic structure provided X and Y are parallel.
Using 1, we can A and B are eliminated
Using 2, we can eliminate C and D
E is the correct answer

In GMAT English "such as" is to be used always to present a list, not "like".
Hence (A) and (B) incorrect.

Secondly -Correct usage of Either "X" or "Y" - X and Y should be in same form

C and D put incorrect "on" before exterminating.

Hence

E is the right answer.
Such as should be used instead of like.
Either X or Y.
X and Y should be parallel.

C and E can be shortlisted as they both use vaccinating with exterminating , However C adds ON EXTER. where On is not needed , therefore E is the correct choice..

On either…or is correct
Either on…or on…..is also correct (I suppose)
On either…or on is not correct, eliminate C and D
