By merging its two publishing division, the company will increase their share of the country's \$21 billion book market from 6 percent to 10 percent, a market ranging from obscure textbooks to mass-market paperbacks.

A. their share of the country's \$21 billion book market from 6 percent to 10 percent, a market ranging
- company = singular, should be "ITS"

B. from 6 percent to 10 percent its share of the \$21 billion book market in the country, which ranges
- ", which" incorrectly refers to "country". The country ranges? Doesn't make sense

C. to 10 percent from 6 percent in their share of the \$21 billion book market in the country, a market ranging
- same error as "A"

D. in its share, from 6 percent to 10 percent, of the \$21 billion book market in the country, which ranges
- same error as "B"

E. to 10 percent from 6 percent its share of the country's \$21 billion book market, which ranges

E. to 10 percent from 6 percent its share of the country's \$21 billion book market, which ranges

between choice B and E. we see that "market" in E is closer to "which" than in choice B. another point is that "country's book market" in E is better than "maket in the country" in B.

this is hard problem
