b/w D and E for me. I'm gonna go with E. I hear people say "x on the dollar" all the time. That may be reason enough not to choose it.

I'd go for E.

'A' would have been good if it was "10 cents on the dollar to 40 cents on the dollar". The "up" is tipping me off...

(A) from 10 cents on the dollar up to 40 cents on the dollar
(B) from 10 cents of the dollar to 40 cents of the dollar
(C) from 10 cents on the dollar and 40 cents on the dollar
(D) from 10 to 40 cents of the dollar
(E) from 10 to 40 cents on the dollar

- Need 'on the dollar'. B , D out.
- Need 'from - to' C out
- A is a little wordy though I can't see anything wrong with it.

E it is.


Praetorian, these are some real tough SCs!!!

A, B, C are ruled out.

"on the dollar" sounds better.

E is my answer too.

I am going with E also.

"of the dollar" seems unnecessary when used in D, might as well just say 10 to 40 cents and ignore the dollar.

Hmmm...
so when you say 40 cents on the dollar, it means $1.40 and 40 cents of the dollar would mean 40 cents?

Or is "on the dollar" usage wrong? But I think it is very common to say on the dollar.
