Hi guys,

I have a question seems not addressed yet regarding those usage.

such as those of finance and marketing - for me, it sounds awkward. But I can fully get why "those of" here is ungrammatical. So, need help why it incorrectly refers to the "specialized areas"?

Finance and marketing are areas. So, "those" is redundant.

With "those" in the sentence, we have the following:

majoring in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing have been becoming increasingly

The structure of the above is similar to the following:

majoring in specialized areas like the areas of this area and this other area have been becoming increasingly

As business grows more complex, (Subj) students majoring in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing (V) have been becoming increasingly (Mod) successful ...

1. Verb tense
(A) majoring in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing have been becoming increasingly
(D) who major in specialized areas like those of finance and marketing have been becoming more and more
Use of present perfect progressive doesn't make sense when "business grows" is in simple present. It makes it seem like they have stopped becoming successful as business grows.

(B) who major in such specialized areas as finance and marketing are becoming more and more
Simple present to present progressive, OK

(C) who majored in specialized areas such as those of finance and marketing are being increasingly
simple present "Business grows" to simple past "who majored" back to present progressive "are being" doesn't make sense

(E) having majored in such specialized areas as finance and marketing are being increasingly
Present perfect doesn't make sense, why would ONLY those who majored in the past be successful as business grows.
