Between A and B is what we need to decide.

One way of looking it also from the point of comparative "more".

Rule: We use comparatives (more, fewer, bigger, smaller) for situations with just two elements.

Here we are comparing 6 measures. So more is wrong. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Despite the increasing popularity among financial analysts of "operating cash flow" as a measure of a company's viability, a combination of six more conventional measures has been shown to be more accurate to predict business failure.


(A)has been shown to be more accurate to predict business failure

(B)has been shown to predict business failure more accurately

(C)were shown to be more accurate to predict business failure

(D)have been shown to more accurately predict business failure

(E)have been shown to predict business failure more accurately

We need "has been" and not " have been"

It's (B) as (A) is wordy and awkward.

C,D,E are wrong due to SV agreement.
combination takes singular

A is wrong
I) wordy as compared to B
II)B makes more sense as it is talking about predict accurately than accurate to predict in A
