'the rates of' in a,b and c appear to be not nescessary
D changes the meaning of the sentence slightly
E seems best to me.

you are correct ywilfred. But why is "the rates of" unecessary? "the rates of manic depression" is different from "manic depression".

Also how is D 's meaning different?

E)...the right idiom is "rates for" and not "rates of". A),B) and C) are out. D) is out b/c "as...when" is wrong. its "as...as". E) uses the right expression "more than".

E for me.

the rate can not be prevalent. So A, B, and C out.

(D) manic depression and major depression are ten to thirteen times as prevalent when compared to: awkward and ungrammartical

(E) manic depression and major depression are ten to thirteen times more prevalent than in: The BEST

I just read the idiom list "rates of" is unidiomatic

"rates for" is idiomatic

Is "rate of" and "rate for" both idiomatic?

the comparision is between the scholars' manic depression and major depression and polulation's manic depression and major depression, not the "rates of scholars' manic depression and major depression and population's manic depression and major depression".

D is unidiomatic. the idiom is "as prevalant as....".

Between B and E, I`ll take E because it is less wordy/redundant.

E

The rate and then 10 to 13 times is not correct. E correctly does the comparision.

The rates con not be prevalent. Eliminate A, B and C. D is not correct because ir doesn't use the correct idiom. therefore E is the best answer.
