C

1. "not only from", so A, B out
2. "the demand for...", so D and E out

D is very attractive though!

E for me . I think the trap here is to make the sentence look parallel.
C is awkward and wordy,it does however make the sentence l l .

Temporary-employment agencies benefit not only from the increasing demand for clerical workers but also the higher profits made when highly paid professionals are placed, requests for whom have increased in the recent wave of corporate takeovers.

It cannot be D as Temp-emp agencies donot get benefited from highly paid professionals.. also D modifies the meaning by pointing "whose requests" to highly paid professionals

"not only from...but also from" is correct, so eliminate A and B. Eliminate D because temp agencies don't benefit from hihgly paid professionals. It's a toss up between E and C and E just sounds more concise to me.

Answer: E.

E is fine.
It is 'requests for professionals' NOT professional's requests.
Altered Intent.

PARALLEL+ VERB Issues
IDIOM: not only X … but also Y
Both X and Y should be parallel


A. the higher profits made when highly paid professionals are placed, requests for whom [ “from the increasing demand is” not parallel to “ the higher profits” – eliminate it]

B. the higher profits that are made in the placement of highly paid professionals, requests for whom [ “from the increasing demand is” not parallel to “ the higher profits” – eliminate it]

C. from the requests for highly paid professionals, who make higher profits for the agencies when placed and whose requests [ Hold it]

D. from highly paid professionals, whose placement makes higher profits for the agencies and whose requests [“from the increasing demand is” not parallel to “from highly paid” – eliminate it]

E. from the higher profits made in placing highly paid professionals, requests for whom [Parallel is ok but changes the verb tense to past - “made” - eliminate it]

Answer: C

E. from the higher profits made in placing highly paid professionals, requests for whom



I choose C.

It keeps the setence parallell and has correct verb usage.

I say E.

First you need to follow the proper construction for 'not only...but also'

In this case it's:

not only from.....but also from

This rules out A and B.

C. from the requests for highly paid professionals, who make higher profits for the agencies when placed and whose requests

This is out because it says that they benefit from the requests for highly paid professionals. This changes the meaning. They benefit from the profit, not the request. It's also not very concise.

D. from highly paid professionals, whose placement makes higher profits for the agencies and whose requests

This fall into the same trap. This implies that the temp agencies benefit from the highly paid professionals, when if fact they benefit from the profits paid when placing them.

E. from the higher profits made in placing highly paid professionals, requests for whom

Here we have the correct structure and it also correctly implies that the temp agencies benefit from the higher profits. It conveys the right meaning and is concise.
