A makes the comparison well.

In B, "in Corporation X" indicates that a larger percentage of the revenues of X is spent on employee salaries in Corporation Y.

In C, "they" wrongly refers to "Corporation X"

In D, the sentence is awkward.

In D, the meaning is unclear.

Will go with A

X spends larger % on ..... than Y does on .....

Logical and correct comparison. Parallelism is maintained in the sentence.

I was wondering if the following construction would have been correct (parallelism and grammar wise)?

A. Corporation X spends a larger percentage of its revenue on insurance than does Corporation Y on employee salaries.

B. In Corporation X, a larger percentage of the revenues is spent on insurance than is spent on employee salaries in Corporation Y.

C. In Corporation X, they spend a larger percentage of revenues on insurance than Corporation Y does on employee salaries.

E. Of the Corporations X and Y, a higher percentage of revenues is spent on insurance by the former than the latter spends on employee salaries.


KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



A

The sentence compares the percentage of revenue that Corporation X spends on insurance with the percentage that Corporation Y spends on salaries. Since these two things have the same form, the comparison is clear and grammatically correct. (A) is correct.

In (B), the phrase In Corporation X modifies the rest of the sentence, illogically making it seem as if X spends a percentage of its revenue on employee salaries in Corporation Y. It also needlessly uses the passive voice. In (C), they has no clear antecedent. (D) compares Corporation X's percentage with Corporation Y's actual amount. (E) is awkwardly worded and seems to compare a percentage to an amount.
