Maybe :) I even didn't think about it.
My opinion is that "other's" here is too vague.

Ok so here comes the answer


a. of drug dependency and others`prejudicial treatment as well.
b. both of drug dependency and also of prejudicial treatment. – Wrong Idiom

c. both of drug dependency and also from prejudicial treatment. – Wrong Idiom

d. both of drug dependency but also from prejudicial treatment. – Wrong Idiom

e. both of drug dependency and of prejudicial treatment as well.


ok so B, C & E are easy to eliminate.

Now comes the devil A & E

Option E:
We know that E is using a idiom both X and Y BUT but it is also introducing a redundency "as well" so the sentence structure becomes
both X and Y as well - Hence eliminate


the only devil which remains is A
Hence A is the answer.

Let me know if I am thinking correct

I chose E. I would have liked to stick to A, but what buggers me is that "otherS" and the apostrophe. Are these typos?

IMO E - Both X and Y (x and y should be parallel)

There is a very slim chance that this is an OG question or a well written question. I would love to know the source of this.

My opinion is A, but only because B-E are wrong.

This is from Bet the GMAT forums...

d. both of drug dependency but also from prejudicial treatment.
e. both of drug dependency and of prejudicial treatment as well.

OA is (e).

I want to know when we use both , why do we need as well....
All of the answers are horrible - this is neither a real GMAT question nor a reasonable facsimile thereof either.

Hi Folks,

Let me chime in by saying this problem looks fishy to me--(A) is probably the best of the available answers, but the GMAT will generally consider "and" and "as well" as redundant. But without the source of the problem, I can't probe further. Unfortunately, since the original post was from 2007, I doubt we'll see the first poster explaining what was the source of this problem.
