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.
D. A larger percentage of Corporation X’s revenue is spent on insurance than Corporation Y spends 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.


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.
