VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL SOLUTION:

Explanation: The easiest answer choice to eliminate is (B) as the past perfect is clearly incorrect in this case: it suggests they were tied to insider trading before they were at the fund. Also (D) is incorrect as the semi-colon is incorrectly used in that case – it should be separating an independent clause. In (A), the past tense could be correct, but the structure at the end is not parallel and it is imprecise. The “and more likely” does not make it clear what is more likely and does not logically follow the structure before it. In (E), “the more are likely” is also incorrect as something needs to follow it because the structure before cannot be logically put after it. You cannot say: “four have pleaded guilty and more are likely have pleaded guilty” Only (C) gets the second part correct: the semi-colon is used to separate an independent clause and it uses the proper “to do so” after “more likely” to show that “four have pleaded guilty and more are likely (to plead guilty). Answer is (C).
