According to some analysts, whatever its merits, the proposal to tax away all capital gains on short-term investments would, if enacted, have a disastrous effect on Wall Street trading and employment.


(A) its merits, the proposal to tax
(B) its merits may be, the proposal of taxing
(C) its merits as a proposal, taxing
(D) the proposal’s merits, to tax
(E) the proposal’s merits are, taxing


Guys...I just got stuck in tough q. OA later.

D and E distort the meaning.

Down to A,B and C

B has 'may be'. Boss this has to be eliminated.

Now down to A and C.

'its' refers to proposal and 'if' in next line also refers to proposal.

only A gives clear idea.
