very good question. if i remember it correctly, it is from OG:

i chose B for firms to confirm the later expression of "such firms".

same idea here... since firms tend to be very large, firms must survive in the industry

E uses possessive, thus not parallel to firms

B

Can you explain it further Professor?


Since in the non-underlined portion it says "such firms", we need to mention the term "firms" in the underlined portion.
Had it only been "firms" in the latter part, we need not have mentioned firms in the underlined parts. The difference comes b'coz of "such"

...expenditures required of firms to survive in ....., an industry ...... demand, such firms tend to be very large.
