First off -- make sure you understand the meaning of the sentence. What is the author trying to convey?

In simple language ---> There is a new product. The manufacturer of this new product is selling it for 3 times the price of another product (also produced by the same manufacturer). Both these products contain the same ingredients.

Look at choice D closely --

"A new hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price, per milligram, of which the drug’s maker charges for another product with the same active ingredient".

"Of which" here --> in a sense refers to a price of a price.

An easier approach would be to ignore the "per milligram" modifier.

"A new hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price OF WHICH the drug’s maker charges for another product with the same active ingredient".

Choice D does not convey the intended meaning of the sentence.

I go with C.

Look at the sentence and ignore per milligram.

A new hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price....the drug’s maker charges for another product with the same active ingredient.

That fits in nicely. The rest are awkward.

Thanks for the explanation, but I would just like to confirm that "of what" in the problem would also be invalid for the reason above too (since you typed of WHICH).
Thanks,
Ted

Dear @tedchou12,

I will be glad to help clarify your doubt. I somehow believe that you are still doubtful about this question since you have not understood the crux behind what this question tests. Please do correct me if my supposition is wrong.

To answer your question directly - the explanation provided for "of which" is also applicable for "of what". Can you reason it out why? The reason has actually been presented very well in the explanation above. The key thing here is to understand the intended meaning that the sentence wants to communicate. Once you figure that out you will understand why "of which" or "of what" or "as" are incorrect in the context of this sentence.

Do let me know if you have any follow on questions.

Regards,

Payal

Yes, Payal, can you please explain to me what "of which", "of what" and "as" function in this sentence?
Thank you,
Ted
