There's been a lot of chaos to this question's answer explanation. Could you please explain D over E?


In my opinion both D and E are wrong. One standrad practice in GMAT is NOT to use the same pronoun in a sentence to refer to two different antecedents:
In
"....companies with a brand-orientated approach achieved twice as much return on their equity..."
and
"...as those that placed their focus elsewhere..."
the pronoun "their" refers to two diferent sets of companies.

Moreover, in
".....with little relation to whether their marketing was creative ...."
the pronoun "their" is ambiguous.

This question appears to be faulty.


Hi,

can you please elaborate on "two times" vs "twice". Is it safe to say that "two times" will always be used with a comparative degree. For example: 2 times LARGER than .....2 times stronger than .... will it always be followed by a "than"?

Regards
