On another note, in my view, usage of "as" in some other options is incorrect because "as" is used to introduce a new clause and in this usage it means: because.





Hello sevenplusplus,

You do raise an interesting point.


A closer look at all the answer choices suggests that only Choices A, B, and C use the word as.



In the first two choices, as has been used as part of the expression recognized as. The two choices basically say that the chief executive recognized X as Y.


In Choice C, as has been used to mean because and is correctly followed by the clause they typically were within the city limits....


Hence, IMHO, there is no issue with the usage of the word as in any of the answer choices.



Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
Shraddha

Is my PoE correct?

Although unhappy with the high rent her company was paying for its suburban office building, the chief executive recognized rental rates for buildings in the suburbs as far lower than it typically is for property that is located within the city limits.

Quote:
(A) rental rates for buildings in the suburbs as far lower than it typically is for property that is located within the city limits

Wrong pronoun usage of IT

Quote:
(B) rental rates for buildings in the suburbs as being far lower than what the rates typically charged within the city limits had been for property located there

I think there is no comparison error here. I am not too sure about usage of being , but I would prefer verb - were lower- here.
As + being - correct usage of AS as role.
the city limits had been for property located there.
Incorrect usage of - had been - There is no sequencing of events to show this event as earlier of two events.

Quote:
(C) rental rates typically being charged for property located within the city limits to be far lower as they typically were within the city limits for the property there.

Incorrect usage of being as a modifier which is used to modify rental rates.

Quote:
(D) that rental rates for buildings in the suburbs were far lower than rental rates typically being charged within the city limits for property located there

Incorrect usage of being as a modifier which is used to modify rental rates.

Quote:
(E) that rental rates for buildings in the suburbs were far lower than those typically charged for property located within the city limits


correct comparison between rental rates for buildings in X than those (rental rates)
were lower is correct verb tense for subject - rental rates - since it is a point of time event in past.

located - verb-ed modifier referring to property.

Do we always use - THAT - after recognized. Is it a deal breaker here?
