I'm afraid i have two OAs. I came across this question in an old paper test. The OA in that is different from the discussion here on the forum. Don't know which one to go with?!?!

Most energy analysts now agree that the costs of building and maintaining nuclear reactors are too high for nuclear power to likely prove cheaper than coal or oil in the long run.
(A) too high for nuclear power to likely
(B) high enough for nuclear power to be unlikely to
(C) high enough that it is unlikely nuclear power will
(D) so high that nuclear power is unlikely to
(E) so high as to be unlikely that nuclear power will

D. idiom "so x that y"
E would be correct if it were "so as x to be y".

Will go for 'E'...

But is it not weird to compare 'nuclear power' with 'coal or oil'.

E for me

Choice is between D and E

In D though the idiom is correct "So X that Y" tense is the issue... in my opinion use of "will" instead of "is"would have made sentence correct.

E- Correct idiom So x to (be) Y... and use of will is right on dot.

Good question

E.

so that is fine but not a proper structure to be used here

ah. that's from OG. i remember it.

i think in E. the structure is correct. only that makes some mess. but yet dunno.
I had it in my Powerprep test. it was D.

does any one have any other inputs about D and E.

Thanks guys.
According to an old paper test from mba.com the answer is C but according to the forum and ( i guess OG?) it's D.

Guess I'll look for it in OG now..
