(B) with regards to post secondary education found that the graduates with master's degrees went farther in their careers

(C) with regard to post secondary education found that the graduates with master's degrees went further in their careers

(D) on post secondary education found that the graduates with master’s degrees went farther in their careers

(E) on post secondary education found that the graduates with master's degrees went further in their careers\\

in our 5 second scan we can notice two splits:

1) study conducted in/with/on
2) farther vs further

examining 1st split)

the correct idiom is "study conducted on"

we can eliminate options A/B and C

examining 2nd split)

farther - means " far"

master's degree helps the person move ahead with their career not far away - so we must use further!

option E is the correct option!!
