A. as likely to leave their jobs than those who -read sentence as 'more than ...as likely to leave ..THAN..- correct tone and comparison
B. more likely to leave their jobs compared to those who - more - more repeated
C. as likely to leave their jobs as those whoincorrect comparison - 'as those who' - we can't compare those who feel respected to those who don't
D. more likely to leave their jobs as those that'those that' - incorrect; usage of 'that' means you're comparing some specific issue about the employees
E. as likely to leave their jobs compared to those that same as D

C it is.
Since "more than three times" is already present in the statement, using "more likely" will cause redundancy error. Hence B and D are out.

Among a/c/E, C is correct because of "idiom as likely as".

+1 kudos if it helps .

VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL SOLUTION:



This problem tests the proper idiomatic structure of a comparison. A few comparison structure rules are important to know:

-Comparisons using "as" should be paired with a second "as" (e.g. "as many as" or "as qualified as"). Do not pair "as" with "than" as choice A does.

-Comparisons using "more," less," or adjectives ending in -er ("taller," "faster," "stronger") should be paired with "than." Mixing these with "as," as in choice D, is incorrect.

-When you're using a comparative adjective (such as "more," "less," "taller," etc.), do not use the phrase "compared to" or "compared with" - this is redundant, as the adjective itself already shows that a comparison is being made! You can use "compared to" along with adjectives that do not already suggest a comparison.

CORRECT: He is short compared to LeBron James.

CORRECT: He is shorter than LeBron James.

INCORRECT: He is shorter compared to LeBron James.

Choices B and E commit these "compared to" errors, leaving choice C as the correct answer.
