Look at sentence specially non underlined part, it will always help to eliminate few options

Like in this sentence : started with Each year and annually (Redundant )

Left with now D and E , here we are talking how company can save in D it says in employee illness (wrong )

The fact is this question is a piece of cake and not as tough as it appears in the first glance.
Sometimes being a little attentive can eliminate 3 or 4 wrong options in 2 seconds

Lets examine this question here.. No need to go into parallelism, sentence construction, meaning etc etc.

EACH YEAR companies in United States could save as much as $58 billion ANNUALLY by preventing illness among employees and gain as much as $200 billion through improving performance of workers if they simply provided offices with cleaner air.

Now see the sentence starts with "EACH YEAR", so "ANNUALLY" in OPTION A, B and C is redundant.

(A) annually by preventing illness among employees and gain as much as $200 billion through improving performance of workers if they simply provided offices
(B) annually if they prevented employee illness and gain as much as $200 billion through worker performance improved by simply providing
(C) annually in employee illness prevention and gain as much as $200 billion through worker performance improved by simply providing

(D) in employee illness prevention and gain as much as $200 billion through improving performance of workers if they simply provided
Improving is incorrect. The companies themselves are not improving the performance of the worker. It's the clean air that will cause improved performance.
The sentence is also awkward. Employee illness prevention is not parallel with through improving performace

(E) by preventing illness among employees and gain as much as $200 billion through improved worker performance if they simply provided

(A) Same
(B) annually if they prevented employee illness and gain as much as $200 billion through worker performance improved by simply providing
(C) annually in employee illness prevention and gain as much as $200 billion through worker performance improved by simply providing
(D) in employee illness prevention and gain as much as $200 billion through improving performance of workers if they simply provided
(E) by preventing illness among employees and gain as much as $200 billion through improved worker performance if they simply provided



[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer says E, however "preventing illness" and "if they simply provided" don't seem to be parallel...Any thoughts? A, B, C are out since "each year" makes "annually" redundant. Yet I don't see a good choice between D and E either

As the sentence already states "Each year companies.....", therefore, use of "annually" is redundant.
Eliminate A,B,C.

Option D has usage error. That is, when we say X entity can save Y dollars, we are expected to specify how exactly that can be achieved. Option E does exactly that. Therefore, Option (E) is the best answer.

Hope this helps. Cheers :-)

Hi,
Please underline the sentence.

(A) annually by preventing illness among employees and gain as much as $200 billion through improving performance of workers if they simply provided - Annually and each year mean the same. Wrong option.
(B) annually if they prevented employee illness and gain as much as $200 billion through worker performance improved by simply providing - Awkward sentence- Wrong
(C) annually in employee illness prevention and gain as much as $200 billion through worker performance improved by simply providing - Wrong choice.
(D) in employee illness prevention and gain as much as $200 billion through improving performance of workers if they simply provided- It seems company has to improve performance of workers. - Wrong choice.
(E) by preventing illness among employees and gain as much as $200 billion through improved worker performance if they simply provided- Here -ing is parallel to -ed. By simply providing is changed to simply provided.- no serious error. so correct.

Eliminate Options A, B and C as these options contain redundancy error -----( sentence starts with each year... and in between 'annually' is used)

Option D)
in employee illness prevention and gain as much as $200 billion through improving performance of workers if they simply provided
usage of through improving is incorrect.

Option E)
by preventing illness among employees and gain as much as $200 billion through improved worker performance if they simply provided.
Correct option.

Hence Answer is E.

Kudos if it helps.
