Re: SC-Lowering Interest Rates [#permalink] New post 13 Sep 2005, 17:08
My choice is B.

(A) lowering interest rates, as well as lowering fears about inflation,
- this breaks the parallelism without the "a" before lowering

(B) a lowering of interest rates and of fears about inflation,
- this maintains the parallelism that a large drop in oil prices will lead to a lowering OF interest rates and OF fears

(C) a lowering of interest rates, along with fears about inflation,
- "along with fears about" sounds awkward

(D) interest rates being lowered, along with fears about inflation,
- passive

(E) interest rates and fears about inflation being lowered, with
- this erroneously combines interest rates and fears together
