D is wrong but E is a little bit weird to me that
it sense of taking time, 2 years, to lowest level
rather than The lowest level of period 2 years

But anyway I pick E

same here. D or E. E sounds better though. It would be interesting to know the OA/OE.

Hmm, as with everyone else, D vs E.
But i want to choose D.

I would have been really happy if the sentence were
decrease in unemployment level to a two year low
But i am happy with moving 'level' around a little.
decrease in unemployment to a two year low level

I will go with E. We need to use 'sperlative' form as the comparision is between more than two months (24 months).

D, I think...

'two year low' is idiomatic and means 'lowest level in two years'...

Uh uh. I know what you're thinking. "Is the answer A, B, C, D or E?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

Will go with E.

IMO Lowest level in two years is better than two year low level.

It was easy to eliminate all but D & E in this case, and E was the only one that made sense.
