A. a lowering of employment rates triggered by a drop in investment, which causes people to cut consumer spending and starts a cycle of layoffs leading back to even lower employment rates
B. a lowering of employment rates triggered by dropping in investment, which causes people to cut consumer spending and starts a cycle of layoffs leading back to even lower employment rates
C. falling employment rates triggered by a drop in investment, which causes cutbacks in consumer spending, starting a cycle of layoffs that lead to even lower employment rates
D. falling employment rates that are triggered by a drop in investment, causing people to cut consumer spending and starting a cycle of layoffs that lead back to even lower employment rates
E. falling employment rates that are triggered by a drop in investment, causing cutbacks in consumer spending and starting a cycle of layoffs leading to even lower employment rates

In Choices A, B, and C, the use of which is wrong. The economic recession is causing the cutbacks. But in choices A, B, and C, which modifies investment. So it sounds like the investment is causing the cutbacks.
D sounds funny "people to cut consumer spending"
I am going for E. "causing cutbacks ...and starting a cycle" is parallel.

E uses "cutbacks in spending", not directly conveying clearer meaning than D, so I would choose D is the best. D is more direct.

1. "which" in A, B, and C illogically modifies "a drop/dropping in investment" rather than "economic recession", making A, B, and C awkard, A, B, C out

2. D is the best

clearly between D and E

In D:
"layoffs that lead back to even lower employment rate" --> here it looks like only "layoffs" leading to "lower employement"

In E:
"causing X and starting Y" leading to lower employment
here both "causing X" and "starting Y" are leading to "lower employment"

E conveys correct meaing..


E is the best.

Clearly NO A,B,D

Because people and consumer spending are redundant. consumer spending is an act of people.

Between C & E, it is E as it shows the effect entirely and does not divide it using which.
