Formulas for cash flow and return on assets do not apply to small businesses in the same way as they do to established big businesses, because they are growing and are not often in equilibrium.
Right Answer:
D) Because new small businesses are growing and are seldom in equilibrium, formulas for cash flow and the ratio of debt to equity do not apply to them in the same way as to established big businesses.

Why is ETS using (as to) , it sounds terrible.

Does the modifier refer to the entire clause?

As to sounds natural to me :lol:

There is a good explanation on As to in Kaplan's Verbal Workbook.

as to means "in the same way"

there is also a vague pronoun THEY

so, "as to" fixes that problem.


it refers to big businesses
