Rising inventories, when unaccompanied correspondingly bv increases in sales, can lead to production cutbacks that would hamper economic growth.

(A) when unaccompanied correspondingly by increases in sales, can lead

(B) when not accompanied by corresponding increases in sales, possibly leads

(C) when they were unaccompanied by corresponding sales increases, can lead

(D) if not accompanied by correspondingly increased sales, possibly leads

(E) if not accompanied by corresponding increases in sales, can lead

Hi! I did a search and found this question in previous posts, but they were asking about another point of grammar, so I decided to start a new thread

The question is:" Rising inventories, WHEN UNACCOMPANIED BY CORRESPONDING INCREASES IN SALES, POSSIBLY LEADS to production cutbacks that would hamper economic growth.

The correct answer is "if not accompanies by corresponding increases in sales, can lead"

I understand that there is a S (plural)- V (singular) issue with the first option. However, the OG also states:
1. when is needlessly difficult to understand.

Can someone please explain why when is confusing (vs if not)? Thanks!

2. unaccompanied is not as effective as not accompanied

Can anyone explain why this is so?

Thanks!

Hii TCSING.
Please note that "when" on GMAT is used only to modify time period and not any condition. Here the sense is to provide a condition that if X doesn't happens, then y happens.
Also to your question that why "not accompanied" is better than "unaccompanied", we are here providing a condition in which if X doesn't happens then y happens. To show this " not-happening", "not accompanied" is way better than the latter.
Hope that helps.
