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

Exceeding the figures........the ....earning`s.....

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

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

Please explain

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

Put those (dirty clothes) in the washing machine. ---> OK
This year`s profits did not equal those of last year. ---> OK
<or>
This year`s profit did not equal that of last year. ---> OK
