The doctors, not the non-union members, are spending less time with patients.

For convenience, I am pasting Ritesh's explanation (In the above thread Laxie mentioned OA is C:

Try breaking the sentence.

Among lower-paid workers, union members are less likely than nonunion members to be enrolled in lower-end insurance plans

it does 3 things.

1. plans THAT impose stricter limits on medical services,
2. plans THAT require doctors to see more patients,
3. and plans THAT spend less time with each

in 3rd, what is EACH referring to. I think it should refer to patients. Right.

Now ATLEAST 2 problems with this question.
1. The plan can not spend time with each.
2. To be parallel, we need repetition of word THAT after each predicate. Check OG question (many of the dioxins that are uncontrolled and that north americans are exposted to. Choice C, which is wrong in that sentence too because of missing THAT)

I think D is the answer

I thought it was C, but the explanations make sense and so another one for D

late, but agree with D.

"impose stricter limits on medical services" and "require doctors to see more patients" are two seperate charecters and "and" seperates them properly.

"require doctors to see more patients, spending bla bla bal" - here "," is needed because the second part of the sentence " spending bla bla bla " is connected to ( result of ) "require doctors to see more patients".

Why not E?

D is almost ok, although "spending..." participial phrase has no clear antecedent "doctors" or "plans"

I prefer " E", though is a bit wordy...

Hmm.. E has problem with "," position. I think E comes out as if "requiring docs to see more patients and spending less time with each patient as two stricter limits imposed". This is not the message implied from original message. Original message is more in the line of saying because of the stricter limits that require docs to see more patients, docs can't spend more time with each patient.

E is wrong because requiring and spending become parallel.
but spending refers to doctor, so it cannot be parallel with requiring.

D is correct as the OA says.

In D how do we know spending is reffering to docs?

is spending related to docs? how?
