I would pick D - the "hormone is secreted in higher concentrations," not "the hormone is secreted during sleep in higher..." D also supplies the word "during" to show exactly when the hormone is secreted in higher concnetrations.

How about E?


I will go with E...

If I could go back and change my answer I would change it to E. On a second look E seems to obey the rule of parallelism while D does not..."during sleep then during waking..."

I'll go with 'E'.

Comparing "sleep" and "waking hours" doesn't make sense in 'D'. Also avoid 'ing' forms.

It is D.


E) in higher concentrations when asleep than when awake
What E says is thet harmone sleep or wake... Which is wrong.. They are in high concentration during sleep than in waking hours...

I go with D.

During sleep than during waking hours seems to capture the essence correctly. This conveys the time period when the secretions are higher!

E - in higher concentrations when asleep than when awake - something seems to be missing in here. (not quite the GMAT way of reasoning i know!)
When asleep - when who is asleep? sounds wierd!

OA is D for this one.

I also chose E for the parallellism but it might be a little strange to say that a homone is a awake or asleep.

Yeah precisely! E sounds like the hormone is asleep. Also, the essence here is that secretion increases duing a period of time and this while you are sleeping or while you are awake! (waking hours here!!!)
