OAs are at the bottom of my first post, mark that region with your mouse.

Dwivedys, please explain, why you chose 3-C, 4-D and 5-E. They seem a little bit confusing, why not, for example, 3-A, 4-B and 5-B...

3- A : May be unlikely is awkward....unlikely alone suffices ..may be is redundant.

Also, A defeats parallelism... you need "in weeks of ordinary interviewing" to make it parallel to "in other procedures"

4 - B : There are a couple of problems here -

Pension Benefits is plural - the relative THAT applies to singular subjects and hence is inappropriate here. "Pension benefits THAT" therefore is incorrect.

Also it is passive - earned by their employees is preferable to "employees earned"

Finally "and that the information be published" does not go with "Corporations will be required to report <to>" .. ..... here "that" doesn't have a referent

Parallel form requires something like
Corporations will be required to report <to> and also to publish

D plugs all these problems - the second information makes it clear what it is the corporations are required to publish.

5 B - The problem is faulty comparison - you want to compare the degree of USE of insecticide between TODAY and ten years ago.
