First of all the 3 options are using "as" and remaining 2 are using "like". We need to determine which one of these is correct.
"As" is used as an adverb while serving as a preposition with the meaning of "in the capacity of". It should be used before a clause, adverb or prepositional phrase. This is exactly what we need here.
"Like" is used before a noun or pronoun, so does not suits here.
Now we are left with A, B, and C.

"As in" is correct usage than "As with".

So we are left with A, and C.

If you look carefully A is ending in "many of which are in" while C is ending in "many of them in". Obviously C is ending correctly.

Tks for the great explaination! Actually I was confused with the use of "like" and "as" here. OA is C

One more point that I missed, "women work" vs "women works". Since women is plural so correct is "women work" that also helps in eliminating 2 choices.

This one is important, too.

I remembered that for "ratio" and "proportion", V always agrees with the main Subject.
In this sentence: "a overwhelming proportion of women"--> "women" is the main Subjest--V should be "work".

Pls correct if I am wrong

C.
The key to this question is to understand how modifier is attached to the end of the sentence. C uses absolute phrase correctly.

The key point in this question is to recognise wether to use like or as. This can be done by rewriting the statement as:
An overwhelming proportion of women work in Hungary,as in much of Eastern Europe, many of which are in middle management and light industry.
Since action is being compared so as would be used instead of like. Hence D and E are eliminated. B is wrong bcos it violates parallelism by using "with" instead of "in". Now b/w A and C, As wrong bcos of usage of "which" (distosts the meaning). C is the best choice

many of them in X? <= That sounds wrong to me.. though I can't find the rule...
many of whom <= sounds correct and gmatish.
many in X <- might also be ok.

Hi mates,

IMO E

Taking into account that "as" is used to introduce sentences (with verb) and "like" to introduce clauses (no verb), A, B and C out

Between D and E, I think "a proportion of women" is plural: so E

OA and Source?

Cheers

For deiciding whether to use LIKE or AS, ritual's explanation is perfect. Since the clause is being compared(an overwhelming proportion of women work), we have to use AS. D and E out of the race.

B is out of the race because of "an overwhelming proportion of women works". Subject - Verb agreement.

The last part of the sentence "many of.......light industry" is a subgroup modifier, trying to descibe a portion of the larger group.

In A, "many of which are in" which cannot refer to people. Hence it is out of the race.

B is my ans.

IMO C

a) as in much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women work, many of which are in – which can’t refer to human beings
b) as with much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women works, many in – as with wrong
c) as in much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women work, many of them in – Correct
d) like much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women works, and many are – like is wrong. Can’t use for prepositional phrases
e) like much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women work, many are in - like is wrong. Can’t use for prepositional phrases

Since we compare action here not nouns, then we should choose "as", not "like". C is the best of the answers with "as".

C

But the subtle part for me is the proportion of [plural noun] + plural/singular

Thanks to the following post, I get the idea
http://www.manhattangmat.com/forums/in- ... t5864.html

the proportion of filipinos living in milpitas has increased --> it's the actual proportion that has increased (filipinos can't "increase")

a large proportion of the filipinos in milpitas work in san jose --> the filipinos themselves work (a proportion can't work)

1. Sub-Verb Agreement

Here the subject is 'Proportion of women' which is plural so verb should be 'work'

so it's between A and C. As you said 'which' can not be used to refer to poeple.

So A is out and B is the winner.

Good try. You meant C is the answer I beleive.

Lets continue exploring the options.
Errors to look for:
1. Subject verb agreement : 'Proportion of women' PLURAL correct
2. How about AS and LIKE : WHich one is correct here?
3. Many or Many of them : which one is correct ?

We must handle all three elements to get most out of it. Try to answer all three points.
Lets just not answer based on options but

@ jeeteshsingh and ms : Sorry , but these responses do not bring any result, no explanations. swatipr had already mentioned C.

@ swatipr : You are on your way, good explanation for like and as .But "Propotion of women in hungary" is not a clause but a noun phrase. look more for explanation .

P.S. I have also corrected the option C . (changed "Many" to "many of them")

Sorry Sir / Madam.... here I go...

In Hungary,as in much of eastern Europe,an overwhelming propotion of women work,many of which are in middle management and light industry.

1. as in much of eastern Europe,an overwhelming propotion of women work,many of which are
many of which is not correct when being referred to Women present in the proportion

2. as with mych of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming propotion of women works, many
as with much is wrong usage...... should be as in much!

3. as in much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming propotion of women work,many of them
Correct - as in much... correctly used... many of them correctly refer to the women in the proportion which is being talked about...

4. like much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming propotion of women works,and many are
many are is not correct as it now directly refers to the proportion and not the women accounted in the proportion. Also works is wrong... it should be work as an overwhelming propotion of women is plural

5. like much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming propotion of women works,many are
many are is not correct as it now directly refers to the proportion and not the women accounted in the proportion. Also works is wrong... it should be work as an overwhelming propotion of women is plural
