6. Setting up a corporation requires more paperwork and legal provision than to establish
either a proprietorship or a partnership.

(D) than establishing either a proprietorship or a partnership

Please explain the reason to prefer one over other. Both the options look correct to me...Thank!

this is because of singular vs plural usage in un-underlined part.

comparing the paperwork required to setup 1 corporation to multiple proprietorships and partnerships. This sounds illogical to me.

d for me too,
reason:
1) the and makes the second part plural, single things cannot be compared to plural stuff.
2)plain old parallelism ---a company, a proprietorship, a partnership

In comparisons, it is not necessary to compare a singular to singular only.
IMO-
Ram is better than any other student in the class - singular- singular - correct
Ram is better than all other students in the class - singular - plural - correct

Although, I agree that there is a meaning difference in the above two.
