I'll take a stab in trying to point out the difference between D & E.

I think most of us can see the placement of "did" is different in both A/C. The way I read it, "did" substitutes for "getting called back".
--> One group of ppl (ethnic sounding names) had a harder time (GETTING CALLED BACK) THAN ppl (white sounding names).

D is wrong b/c the placement of "did" indicates that the 2nd group of ppl (white-sounding names) DID send their resumes...we know both groups sent in their resumes so this is a non-issue, the issue is that one group is being discriminated against.

E is correct b/c the placement of "did" should read like this: "employers than people [getting called back] who sent in resumes showing similar qualifications but with “white-sounding” names.

Kudos if this helped

does anyone know why D is wrong ? I ended up picking D as the Did+Who const was very strange to me. The OE says the placement of DID is wrong in D. can anyone elaborate on this ?

This problem requires that you properly frame the comparison: “people who sent in resumes with these characteristics had a more difficult time getting called back than people did who had resumes with these characteristics.” In (A) and (B) the “as” is incorrect: you say “more than” not “more as”. In (C), you need a “with” after the “but”: without it, the sentence means that the resume showed qualifications AND white names, clearly nonsensical. For (D), the “did” is in the wrong place: it seems to indicate that only those who decided to send in resumes were affected. The “did” needs to be before or after people, not after the who. Answer is (E).

A recent study, published by the California Bureau of Employment, found that people who sent in resumes with “ethnic-sounding” names had a much more difficult time getting called back from employers as people who sent in resumes showing similar qualifications but “white-sounding” names.


I understand E is the right answer because it is the only one that correctly uses than instead of as and maintains people to avoid vague pronoun use. I'm wondering if E would still have been the right choice if it had omitted did?
