Following Stacey Koprince's advice(More about Stacey's advice http://www.manhattangmat.com/blog/index ... e-problem/ ) , I tried to analyze the above mentioned problem. However I was not able to answer following questions.

1> What type of problem is it ? (example: S-V agreement, Parallelism, Comparison etc.)

2> What is the most efficient approach to solve it ?

3> How to recognize similar problems in future ?


Kindly help me to decode this problem. Well the OA to above problem is B

This is a SC with with mixed considerations:
1. Conditional: the conjunction while indicates reverse result of the commerce department's announcement. Thus here might have/would have required to express negative thought and been is for passive form of the sentence.

2. Infinitive: there are some verb which are followed by infinitive such as, agree, appear, arrange, choose, expect...........

Answer is B.

This problem can be categorized under the heading of parallelism. Although the parallelism is subtle."While" indicates comparison. On the left hand side of while we have "eased" which is a verb . Hence there has to be a verb on the right hand side too. Moreover expected to do something is the correct idiom. Hence combining the two rules we are left with just two answers "A" and "B".In"A" the second "it" is ambiguous. So we are left with "B" as the right answer. "D" is ruled out because "rise" is a noun in that answer choice.
