D for me. I think in E it is not clear where the Discrimination is impacting.

I think E is just fine.

I think there is a redundancy in using both words. Discrimination and favors.

D is not correct because it says: ... wages that favors ...

I narrowed the choices to D and E. Even though E is more concise, I would like to choose D.

The only problem I have with E, is that "over the predominantly female " does not clearly refer to the predominantly female jobs. Therefore I go with D.

It cant be E IMO

(D) that favors predominantly male occupations over those that are predominantly female has

(E) paid in predominantly male occupations over the predominantly female has

In E the flaw is it compares male occupations with female so I doubt that

D has a clear comparision with "those"

D....it is

agree that it has to be D though D is not the ideal one.

"Discrimination in wages" paid is wrong.

only "wages" can be paid. "Discrimination in wages" cannot be paid.

D is not correct since that should refer to wages and not to discrimination.

hence E
