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?

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 _________________ It is beyond a doubt that all our knowledge that begins with experience.

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.

<<Correct..Correct usage of assuming that >>
Please correct me If I am wrong.The usage of fact is not correct?Can any one tell me is it always incorrect to use fact as a key word in SC.

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.

About the second construct in particular, I think that is perfectly legit:

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.

I hope that what I mean is clear

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. VP Joined: 08 Jun 2010 Posts: 1057 Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 72 [0], given: 328 Re: Using the average wage of$200 a day to value workers time, [#permalink]  03 Sep 2015, 17:33
if the second part of ellipsis contains helping verb, the first part must contain the same helping verb, possibly in different tense. if the case is not like this, we write down full verb phrase in the second part.

I think in E , "would " should be " would ask"
