Bleached, enriched flour, almost like sugar's nutritional value, and much more likely to appear in foods labeled "sugar-free."


(a) Bleached, enriched flour, almost like sugar's nutritional value, and much more likely to appear in foods labeled "sugar-free."

(b) Bleached, enriched flour is almost more devoid of nutritional value than sugar, and much more than likely to appear in foods labeled "sugar-free."

(c) Bleached, enriched flour's nutritional value is nearly as low as that of sugar, and this type of flour is much more likely to appear in foods labeled "sugar-free."

(d) Bleached, enriched flour is almost as equivalently low in nutritional value as sugar, and much more likely than appearing in foods labeled "sugar-free."

(e) Sugar's nutritional value is even lower than that of bleached, enriched flour, and much more likely to appear in foods labeled "sugar-free."

It's C. Correct and precise comparison between nutritional value of sugar and bleached floor.

Let us not bother whatever this convoluted passage means. Let’s just stick to parallelism and we can see that these weird passages succumb in a moment.

(a) Bleached, enriched flour, almost like sugar's nutritional value, and much more likely to appear in foods labeled "sugar-free."

(b) Bleached, enriched flour is almost more devoid of nutritional value than sugar, [size=150]and much more than likely to appear in foods labeled "sugar-free."[/size]

(c) Bleached, enriched flour's nutritional value is nearly as low as that of sugar, and this type of flour is much more likely to appear in foods labeled "sugar-free."

(d) Bleached, enriched flour is almost as equivalently low in nutritional value as sugar, and much more likely than appearing in foods labeled "sugar-free."

(e) Sugar's nutritional value is even lower than that of bleached, enriched flour, and much more likely to appear in foods labeled "sugar-free."

This is a compound sentence and the two connected sentences should be ICs. The first is a verbed sentence while In Choice A, B, D and E, the second part is just a phrase and not a clause at all lacking a verb. So throw them out being unparallel. C survives with verbed clauses on both sides of ‘and’

Hi daagh

With all respect, I think that B is incorrect because of destorted meaning in the first part but not problems with construction.

1. Magoosh claims that noun + simple verb can be omitted in second part. In this case it is [enriched flour + is]
https://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/dropping- ... -the-gmat/

2. Sometimes COMMA ,AND can be inserted for stylistic reason in parallel list (which is not ivolved in IC construction), if the first part is relatively long

As per my opinion C has a problem in the second part because "more likely" with previous AND does't work. More likely than what? than sugar to be labeled or more likely to appear than not to appear? There is no context for comparison. Example from NYT:

Those born into poverty are much less likely to be able to climb out than their counterparts in other races.

The low quality question IMHO.
