A recent study has found amoxicillin, long a standard treatment for ear infections, as being about as effective as newer, more expensive antibiotics and causing fewer side effects.

(D) that amoxicillin, long a standard treatment for ear infections, is about as effective as newer, more expensive antibiotics and causes
(E) that amoxicillin, long a standard treatment for ear infections, is about as effective compared to newer, more expensive antibiotics and with

In 99% of the cases "show, require, found" etc require "that", we can eliminate 3 possible answers.
The idiom is "as ADJ as" and with this E is out of the competition. Moreover in E "with" is unclear.

This is one of report questions that require "that" (found that, indicate that, demonstrate that....) You cannot ignore "that".
Narrow down to D, E.
D is correct;
........that amoxicillin, long a standard treatment for ear infections, is about as effective as newer, more expensive antibiotics and causes
Good comparison and parallelism.

Hope it helps.

Two issues are dealt with in this question :
1.
The researches dint find the drug... they found that amoxicillin .....

So clearly the answer choice is either D or E .
2. and now check for idiom - as effective as

We have the answer choice as D clearly.

I agree w/ the 'found that' idiom, but is it ok to leave out THAT after the 'and'?

The study found that:
1) that Amox is as effective as the more expensive stuff
2) that it causes fewer side effects

Here is what the sentence looks like with the correct answer choice (D):

    "A recent study has found that amoxicillin, long a standard treatment for ear infections, is about as effective as newer, more expensive antibiotics and causes fewer side effects."

If we add a "that" in the middle of "and causes", we will have a parallelism issue... "A recent study has found that amoxicillin is effective and that causes fewer side effects." The noun "amoxicillin" appears after "that", so if you add another "that", you'd have to add another noun, i.e. "A recent study has found that amoxicillin is effective and that patients prefer amoxicillin to other antibiotics."

As is, the sentence correctly creates a list of the two parallel verbs "is" and "causes": "... that amoxicillin is... and causes..."

GMATNinja is and that an independent clause? If so shouldnt it be connected by FANBOYS

HI GMATNinja, mikemcgarry, DmitryFarber, MagooshExpert (Carolyn), ccooley, GMATGuruNY, EMPOWERgmatVerbal, EducationAisle

Can we eliminate, because B & C lack verb?

Also in C to be is not parallel to that? Is my understanding correct?

I'm not sure that I understand your question, but I'll give it a shot...

You can certainly have a parallel list of "that" clauses, i.e., "A study has found 1) that amoxicillin is effective and 2) that penicillin is ineffective."

Both 1) and 2) are noun clauses which cannot stand by themselves ("that penicillin is ineffective" would not be a complete thought).

B & C both have a main verb: "A recent study has found..." However, as pointed out in this post, we need a "that" after "has found". The study did not FIND amoxicillin (hiding under a rock?). Rather, the study found out something ABOUT amoxicillin. What did the study find out? "THAT amoxicillin is about as effective...{etc.}"

We also want "as effective as", not "as effective compared to", so there's another issue with (B).

Quote:

Yes, you are right about the parallelism issue in (C)!
