I will go with A. I debated between A and B. However, B seems to change from Active to passive voice. Information is not lost by whom?

go with A.
I think B is wrong because passive, and I m nto sure whether "...enough that.." is correct. The idiom I know is ... so . .. that ..".

Is the original sentence written wrong? I think "so" should be underlined in the original setence.

I think B is the right answer.

B. Business leaders can now install sophisticated systems quickly enough that information is not lost in a lengthy conversation.

C. Business leaders can now install sophisticated systems quickly enough so that there is no lost information in a lengthy conversation.

D. Business leaders can now install sophisticated systems quickly enough and thus not lose information in a lengthy conversation.

Even thought I have picked â€˜Aâ€™ but on a second thought, I have never seen â€˜so asâ€™ being used anywhere before. So, I feel that it may be a wrong choice.

To the guys picking â€˜Bâ€™, can you share your rationale behind not picking either â€˜Câ€™ or â€˜Dâ€™?
I actually would pick 'C' or 'D' first before 'B'.

I go with C. The correct idiom here is so....that... or enough ...not...to...as there is no other variant except for so..that...I went with C. Everything else looks unidiomatic to me.

I am with B too, i dont think "no lost information" is as idiomatic as "information is not lost"
