(A) leading neither to lower standards of living, more of an unequal distribution of income, or - usage should be "neither...nor"
(B) leading neither to lower standards of living nor a more unequal distribution of income, or - correct usage "neither...nor"
(C) not leading to either lower standards of living nor to more of an unequal distribution of income, and neither is it - wrong usage, it should be "either...or" or "neither....nor"
(D) not leading to lower standards of living, more of an unequal distribution of income, and it is not - wrong structure, no continuity
(E) not leading to lower standards of living or to a more unequal distribution of income, nor is it - awkward, or should come with either.

Answer is B. What is OA?

It would be good to know what the OA is. I did think about the "to" in B. It's up for discussion.

Thanks.

But doesn't option E violates the rule of double negatives??
Can someone explain what's the correct idiom used in opton E? because I don't think I've seen an idiomatic structure like this before. thanks
