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.


What are you talking about
There is no option "OF WHICH"... option D reads "OF WHAT" .. I guess you did not read the question properly
Although you mention the correct answer but your reason for disqualifying D are not entirely satisfactory because you based them on a wrong phrase.
THE CORRECT ANSWER IS C

Hi lawiniecke

of what is redundant... focus on the part around the underlined part:

price of what the drugmaker charges

what -> refers to price itself

so price of price the drugmaker charges

contrast it to :

price that the drugmaker charges
