Scientific evidence suggests that the benefits arising from consumption of alcohol are greatest with alcohol that is taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis than when it is consumed on binges.

(A) with alcohol that is taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis than when it is consumed
(B) with taking alcohol with meals on a moderate, regular basis as opposed to its consumption
(C) when alcohol is taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis, rather than consuming it
(D) when alcohol is taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis rather than consumed
(E) when alcohol, taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis, and not consumed

[Reveal] Spoiler:
I narrowed it down to C and D. A,B uses with E changes meaning.. I'm more inclined to D as I see the structure when alcohol is taken rather than when alcohol is consumed Can someone provide a detailed analysis! Thanks

hi ,
i think there is a parallelism error in option C

alcohol consumption greatest beneficial when
alcohol is taken with meals on ......
rather than when...consuming it on binge(very fast pace)==>this part has error..because of presence of IT in between....

taken with meals ON.......rather than when consumed ON==>THIS SHOWS THE CORRECT PARALLELISM as in option D.

KUDOS if it helped.

Scientific evidence suggests that the benefits arising from consumption of alcohol are greatest with alcohol that is taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis than when it is consumed on binges.

Well the first split is "with" VS "when". As we are talking about a thing that happens when something else also happens, "when" is correct.

I would not say that E changes the meaning, I would say that E is not a complete sentence:
(E) when alcohol (, taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis,-modifier-) and not consumed
taken is a modifier and the sentence looks like : when alcohol and not consumed. Clearly wrong

(C) when alcohol is taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis, rather than consuming it
(D) when alcohol is taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis rather than consumed
consumed or consuming it? You very rarely can determine the correct verb just by looking at it, you have to take a broader look.
Both setences have "taken", so the verb that follows "rather" must mantain the parallelism. D hence is correct

@fozzzy: Answer should be D. The keyword checked here is X rather than Y.
Instead of with, when will be used which leads us to options C, D and E

Option C: taken Rather than consuming -> not parallel
Option D: taken rather than consumed ->parallel ->correct answer
Option E: not a complete sentence

Please let me know if you have any doubts

With C, the sentence would be:

Scientific evidence suggests that the benefits arising from consumption of alcohol are greatest when alcohol is taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis, rather than consuming it on binges.

The idiom used is clearly ..when alcohol is X rather than Y... So, the structure in C is:

When alcohol is:
a) taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis
rather than
b) consuming it on binges.

In other words:
a) When alcohol is taken with meals on a moderate, regular basis
rather than
b) When alcohol is consuming it on binges.

Alcohol is consuming it on binges? Clearly incorrect for multiple reasons:
a) Alcohol is not consuming anything; in fact Alcohol is being consumed.
b) it is clearly intended to refer to alcohol. Hence, Alcohol is consuming alcohol on binges is clearly incorrect.

Ans D, X rather than Y is correct. Choice A usage of with is wrong.
