Unlike most severance packages, which require workers to stay until the last day scheduled to collect, workers at the automobile company are eligible for its severance package even if they find a new job before they are terminated.

A. the last day scheduled to collect, workers at the automobile company are eligible for its severance package
B. the last day they are scheduled to collect, workers are eligible for the automobile company's severance package
C. their last scheduled day to collect, the automobile company offers its severance package to workers
D. their last scheduled day in order to collect, the automobile company's severance package is available to workers
E. the last day that they are scheduled to collect, the automobile company's severance package is available to workers

Narrowed down to two but picked the incrrect one.


D & E are the only valid options... once you see that "most severance packages" needs to be compaired to "auto company's severance package". Need to be parallel, compare apples to apples...

For those unsure of why E is wrong...
I would say that E is incorrect because it changes the meaning... "scheduled to collect". Here it is saying that the workers need to stay until the last day, the day in which they are scheduled to collect; however, that is not the intended meaning.

Workers are supposed to stay until the last day they are scheduled to work... IN ORDER TO collect, they must do this. It is a conditional situation... IF they stay until the last day they are scheduled (to work), THEN they will collect the severage package.

D correctly conveys the intended meaning and does so more concisely as well.

IMO it should be E.

Experts can u plz explain why E is incorrect and D is correct


In E, it says, the last they are scheduled to collect doesn't makes sense. D clearly defines that they have to work until they are scheduled in order to get their severence.
