For A and C, using "enough" with "so as to" is wordy and redundant. You can cross those off.

For D and E, when using "quickly enough", it should follow with something more specific (i.e., quickly enough that... or quickly enough to...). Using "and" does not allow for the correct follow-up after "quickly enough" and can be crossed off.

B is the correct answer.

ruchik and rakeshtewatia0105 ,

I think there is a typo.

Give me a minute, please. I will look.

rakeshtewatia0105 , ruchik , and smita123

Answer B is not correct.

Enough that is unidiomatic.

The good news?
I am sure that many of you caught the mistake,
and I am glad that three of you said something.

ruchik used the most effective way to get a response: tagging
(although sometimes we are very busy and cannot get there quickly)

There is no correct answer to this question.

The following sentence is correct (and this option is NOT available :) - I made it up):

Forward-thinking business leaders can now install technologically sophisticated
communication systems quickly enough to prevent information loss in a lengthy conversion.


I think that what I wrote is the intended meaning.
Even so, that meaning seems a little weird.

What does installing a communications system quickly have to do with preventing
information loss in a lengthy conversion?
What, as opposed to installing such a system slowly?
Who would install a communications system slowly?

/never mind. Talking to myself again.
I should take a page from GMATNinja 's book
and talk about food instead.
Nuclear German pastries, for example.
Chocolate truffle layer cake.

The question is retired.

I hope that helps, everyone.
You were all correct.
