Many companies pay almost twice as much to men, if the effect of faster promotions, more bonuses, and better benefits are regarded as salary, than to women, who earn 77 cents for every dollar their male counterparts earn in base salary. ApoorvaBhardwajEffect is the subject here which is singular hence the singular verb is is used and not are. Hope this helps!

(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 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.
