According to a survey of graduating medical students conducted by the Association of American Medical Colleges, minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than are other graduates in planning to practice in socioeconomically deprived areas.
(A) minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than are other graduates in planning to practice
(B) minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than other graduates who plan on practicing
(C) minority graduates are nearly four times as likely as other graduates to plan on practicing
(D) it is nearly four times more likely that minority graduates rather than other graduates will plan to practice
(E) it is nearly four times as likely for minority graduates than other graduates to plan to practice
Since the first part of the sentense is a modifier, hence, the subject i.e. "it is nearly four times as likely as" should come first.
Hence, we are left with D and E.
Out of the two, D is more accurate 'coz E uses "as likely...than", which is odd.
A is wrong...you can't likely...in something
B is wrong...you can't likely....who someting
C is my answer...likely...to do something
D....rather isn't used correctly here
E you could maybe make a case for but I feel there is something wrong here. I just can't place it
I vote for A. There are too many prepositions that are distractions. If you read without the prepositions A is very clear choice. According to a suvery ... minority students... are more likely .... to practice ... in certain areas.
