Be careful here. C is a trap for the wrong modifier.

Exceeding the figures........the ....earnings.....

I'm selecting (E) for: (1) the correct modifier, and (2) the proper comparison markere "those of" at the end.

Completelely agree with Matt. (E) correctly compares one amount with another.

MATT are you saying "those in" is incorrect and "those of" is correct ?

Exactly. "Those in~" is NEVER used as a comparison on the GMAT.

This years profits did not equal those of last year. ---> OK
