A. minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than are other graduates in planning to practice
B. minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than other graduates who plan on practicing
'who plan of practicing' is not correct
C. minority graduates are nearly four times as likely as other graduates to plan on practicing
plan on practicing --> not sure whether GMAT will use this phrase. This is more colloquial
D. it is nearly four times more likely that minority graduates rather than other graduates will plan to practice
sounds correct
E. it is nearly four times as likely for minority graduates than other graduates to plan to practice
' as likely for minority graduates' sounds incorrect

What is the OA?

D. it is nearly four times more likely that minority graduates rather than other graduates will plan to practice -> more rather than
is incorrect
E. it is nearly four times as likely for minority graduates than other graduates to plan to practice -> likely for is wrong
