Use MGMAT's split and resplit method. convinced that is better than the ones without that. So eliminate B, C, D.
growing number of is better than the fact that the number of. So eliminate D, and E
Answer A is left to be correct choice.
By the way, C, D, and E can also be eliminate with the use of compare to and compare with.

A ;)
Despite and In Spite of are used for phrases; those fragment sentences in which there is not a verb. Despite and "In spite of" show contrast.
"Although" is similar, but it is used in clauses (in this type of fragment, there is a verb. Example: Although I loved her, I had to leaver her).

I think I deserve kudos 8-)

Despite "something" .... that "happened"..

If the construction is like above you can use Despite..
A is the answer IMO.

is "prefer human tellers compared with automatic teller machines" correct?
I picked 'A' based on idiom "prefer human tellers to automatic teller machines"
Please let me know if my approacy is incorrect.

I think option A, just because "airline executives are convinced that, just as one-third..." should be the right approach. Option E also has "THAT" but its usage of "compared with" is wrong.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

The first aberration is the use of the phrase the fact, considered crispless in contemporary writing . So D and E are out. The second clue is that we do require the connecting conjunction ‘that’ to be in place after the word ‘convinced’. ‘Convinced that’ brings out the succeeding factor wholly to merge with the text. Only A uses ‘that’. So B and C are out, leaving A as the right choice.

It will be prudent not to get into the nuance of using ‘compared with’ and ‘compared to’, which is not being tested here; please note the right choice uses neither. IMO, neither ‘compared to’ nor ‘compared with’ is the decider in GMAT SC these days.

Daagh - can you please elaborate why use of "the fact" is incorrect here ? is it always incorrect? can this be used as a thumb rule to eliminate options ?
