D?

1. last peice "sales fairly close to last year" is missing a "that of". To compensate we should say last year's [followed by ellipsis]. So eliminate A, B
2. E seperates decline and sales and is hence rejected.
3. C - "experienced upto 50%" does not sound okay. "experienced some effect/feeling" would have been better.

D sounds okay.

C for me.

1st elimination criteria - 'declines' - sales ... not correct.
2nd criteria - Estimated ... to be - correct usage.
3rd criteria - Last year's (or 'that' of last year)

I will go with D.

Estimated that..... but predicted that...... parallelism is maintained.
Liquor sale figures have to close to that of last year's (not last year).

goign with (A). We'll want to place declining sales immediately after experienced, as this is what the store is facing - declining sales. It is not experiencing 50%.

Will is better than would as the stores have not maintained the sales figure, it is something that wil happen in the future. The use of 'would' indicates that this event is over (i think, since would is the past tense of will)

OA is D.
I marked C thinking that in D in 'sales declines of upto 50%' , sales declines was awkward. I thought that 'sales declines' should be either 'sales decline or decline in sales'.
Can anyone explain how 'sales declines' can be correct.
Thanks.
