(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

1. Being only correct in GMAT if it meants "in process of". Usage here, therefore, is incorrect
2. for clarify, the two portions marked in red need to be as close as possible to each other.

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
