Answer should be straight A

B- multiple errors. Which is referring to the workforce and it conveys an illogical meaning. Second: would be cut is incorrect as we have a simple past (was) in the sentence. Third the phrase "expected a reported" sounds very weird compared to "expected to report"

C- not parallel and "expected a reported" phrase

D- Conveys an illogical meaning. Option D is saying that "the company's announcement" is "expecting" to report a loss when it should be the company itself. Please note the word company is in apostrophe and "expecting" cannot refer back to the apostrophe company.

E- Same illogical error as option D. Furthermore, the word "its" does not have an antecedent as the the word company is in the apostrophe

logicness and clearness is the standard gmat want from us.
in choice b and c, it is not clear who will do cutting, so, the meaning is not clear. B and C are gone
