(A) are regarded as salary, than

(B) are regarded as salary, as

(C) is regarded as salary, than it pays

(D) is regarded as salary, as is paid

(E) is regarded as salary, as they pay


+1 for E

(A) are regarded as salary, than --> Singular 'Effect' required singular 'is'

(B) are regarded as salary, as

(C) is regarded as salary, than it pays

(D) is regarded as salary, as is paid

(E) is regarded as salary, as they pay --> Idiom As Much X as Y is correctly used

Why do we not use "are" here?

Effect is the subject here which is singular hence the singular verb is is used and not are.

Hope this helps!

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The first thing you have to look at is subject/verb agreement. To what does the verb ‘to be’ refer? It refers to the effect, which is singular. That means you have to say is regarded. That leaves you with choices C, D and E. Choice C disrupts the as/as idiomatic phrase that you so often see on the GMAT. Choice D uses a passive construction. Choice E is the correct answer.
