I chose option E.

We could eliminate C & D because of its use of "Assuming the ____ as __ " which is incorrect.

Between A, B & E - Only E correctly uses the form "the analyst estimated that the" instead of "the analyst estimated ...."

Does this help explain it?

Hi vishnuns,

can you please elaborate more why you think that "Assuming the ____ as __ " and "the analyst estimated ...." are wrong?

About the second construct in particular, I think that is perfectly legit:
the analyst estimated the search engine’s worth
Why do you think that this kind of strucuture is wrong?

Whenever you see verbs like: "say/tell/suggest/announce/estimate/..." most of the times "that" is required, but do not take this as a Rule of Thumb.
Example:
The computer company has announced that it will purchase (...). In this sentence that is required and refers to the entire clause.

But when you have other types of counstruct as "analysts estimated the worth", "that" is not required.
"The worth" is the actual thing that he estimated, so the phrase without "that" is correct.

I hope that what I mean is clear

Wow! This one was tough took me almost 2 min! Chose (E). In future posts it would definetely be advisable to leave some space between answer choices, otherwise I get the impression it is harder than it really is.

Now back to the question, parallelism in E is correct - Using // assuming. Looking good.

I selected E over A because "might be approximately" is redundant.

Hi,

You estimate THAT ==> A and B are out!

C and D are wordy ==> left with E!

Hope it helps

B,C and D are incorrect because they lack parallelism.
Out of A and E, E uses "estimated that", whereas A doesn't.

So, the correct answer is E.

I think A would have been correct, had it been the analyst estimated that the.
So, E is correct in this case.

What do you think, fellas?

Hi Zarrolou,

If option A is not wrong for this reason, then what's wrong with this option? I think the difference between A and E has more to do with this sentence fragment: "$200 as a value of worker's time". Please help.
