S.C. CEO's pay [#permalink] New post 01 Aug 2005, 13:49
A recent review of pay scales indicates that CEO's now earn an avarage of 419 more pay than blue-collar workers, compared to a ratio of 42 times in 1980

A....
B.
That, on avarage, CEO's now earn 419 the pay of blue-collar workers, a ratio that compares to 42 times
C.
That, on avarage, CEO's now earn 419 the pay of blue-collar workers, as compared to 42 times their pay, the ratio
D.
CEO's who now earn on avarage 419 times more pay than blue-collar workers, as compared to 42 times their pay, the ratio
E.
CEO's now earning an avarage of 419 times the pay of blue collar workers, compared to the ratio of 42 times

Answer is E.

419 needs a suffix of 'times', so drop A, B, C

D is weird because it goes:
A recent review of pay scales indicates that CEO's who now earn on avarage 419 times more pay than blue-collar workers, as compared to 42 times their pay, the ratio in 1980

So E. E is a little odd. It should be earn instead of earning.. Is there a typo?

D & E clear the problem of 419 the pay and 419 times the pay, you are comparing times of pay with times of pay (Apple compared to Apple). Btween D and E, E sounds correct as in D there is an addition of who which makes the sentence ambiguous.

D it is.

There is no full stop at the end. So the sentence is incomplete to the reader. D fits best among the five choices.
