A. more so than those who retired
B. which was more than if they had retired => wrong usage of "which"
C. more than when retiring => wrong comparison between "women" and "when..."
D. more than if they were to retire => "if" is wrong
E. which was more so than those retiring => "retiring" is imprecise usage

What does 'more so' mean?


In the case of A, more so means that Women who took new jobs.... more reported so high marital satisfaction than women who retired completely.
