Results of a United States study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine have shown college-educated women and women living in the South and West to be significantly more likely to be using supplemental hormones as women living in the Northeast and Midwest.

(A) college-educated women and women living in the South and West to be significantly more likely to be using supplemental hormones as women living
(B) college-educated women and women living in the South and West as significantly more likely to use supplemental hormones than if they are living
(C) college-educated women and those living in the South and West being significantly more likely to use supplemental hormones than if they lived
(D) that college-educated women and women who live in the South and West are significantly more likely to be using supplemental hormones as were women that lived
(E) that college-educated women and women living in the South and West are significantly more likely to use supplemental hormones than women living
[Reveal] Spoiler:
(D) that college-educated women and women who live in the South and West are significantly more likely to be using supplemental hormones as were women that lived
(E) that college-educated women and women living in the South and West are significantly more likely to use supplemental hormones than women living

"results have shown that" is necessary, we can eliminate A B C.
If we continue to read the choices left we'll notice some errors in D:"more likely to be using" VS "more likely to use"(more clear) and "more (...) as" VS "more (...) than" (the correct idom). E is the correct answer

Considering that you need a ‘that’ to introduce the subordinate clause in reported speeches and that you need the comparator ‘ than’ in comparative degree of comparison, only E befits the right choice.

KUDOS will encourage me to post more challenging questions :)


All explanations above are correct. "that" is necessary for report question (show that, demonstrate that, indicate that, report that.....). You cannot ignore "that".
Narrow down to D, E.
E is perfectly structured: Results..... have shown that X are more likely to use S-hormones than Y

Hope it helps.

IMO E
Reported speech use of "that" is useful
Between D and E - D has errors of "to be using" and "as"

Results of a United States study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine have shown college-educated women and women living in the South and West to be significantly more likely to be using supplemental hormones as women living in the Northeast and Midwest.

(A) college-educated women and women living in the South and West to be significantly more likely to be using supplemental hormones as women living
(B) college-educated women and women living in the South and West as significantly more likely to use supplemental hormones than if they are living
(C) college-educated women and those living in the South and West being significantly more likely to use supplemental hormones than if they lived
(D) that college-educated women and women who live in the South and West are significantly more likely to be using supplemental hormones as were women that lived
(E) that college-educated women and women living in the South and West are significantly more likely to use supplemental hormones than women living

In the absence of THAT after "Results of a United States study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine have shown".....makes the meaning of sentence as:
Results have shown......college educated women and women living......but the intended meaning is that RESULTS are concluding that college educated women and women of south and west
are more likely to use supplemental hormones than
women of......

so as per the meaning USE OF "THAT" is must and on the basis of this we can eliminate A,B,C

now we have D and E

(D) that college-educated women and women who live in the South and West are significantly more likely to be using supplemental hormones as were women that lived ...(in this i can see 2 error on the basis of which we can eliminate this choice
---->correct idiomatic use is more....than and not more .....as
---->comparison is wrong as second half of sentence is in past tense...."that lived".....which is wrong.
(E) that college-educated women and women living in the South and West are significantly more likely to use supplemental hormones than women living

hope it helps

suggest if i am wrong.
