While market-driven competition encourages pharmaceutical companies to actively seek innovative new drugs,
market analysts note that marketing accounts for twice as much of the industry budget as research
A) marketing accounts for twice as much of the industry budget as research
B) marketing accounts for twice as much of the industry budget as does research
C) the industry budget is accounted for twice as much by marketing than research
D) the industry budget is accounted for twice as much by marketing than by research
E) marketing new drugs is twice as expensive compared to research.
This is a clear comparison concept testing SC question.
While competition does X, analysts note Y.
Both X and Y should be in same voice. Since non-underlined portion of sentence is in active voice, whole sentence must follow active voice form.
options C and D are in passive form thereby violating rule of parallelism which is evident in form of words " is accounted " and "by".
both Research and marketing account for the same amount of budget. This is expressed best in option B.A
performs the classic error of comparison. It is not clear whether marketing accounts for budget or research.
E says that marketing new drugs is twice as expensive compared to research.............compared to
and as expensive
without as are both forms of comparison and thus redundancy is issue here.
