After the fact that the test format was changed, scored were decreased by more than 25%.

After the changes were made in the test format, scores dropped by more than a 25% decrease.

I think the answer given by Manhattan is not correct. Reason:
dropped by more than a 25% decrease - dropped by more than a 25%

Though, it is idiomatically correct, but I think if we have DROPPED then DECREASE in the end is redundant. Can someone give explanation on this?

"After the changes were made in the test format, scores dropped by more than 25%" is enough..
Dropped and decrease are redundant...NO doubt..!!

Yeah, even I think so. There are so many senetences in Manhattan which seem incorrect or may be misprinting.

Jesus, can they ponder over such issue?

Correct.

Manhattan clearly mentioned that this shows redundancy, but if it knows this then why this sentence is mentioned as a correct one. Just because this new option is less wordy doesn't stand out to the winner.
