Well the OA is E. Anybody why C is wrong?

I have seen two types of usage for 'as'.

1. It means as much to X as it does to Y.

2. It means as much to X as to Y.

Which one is preferrable? Though I do remember seeing example of second type. Pls share your thoughts.

Thanks,
Vipin

^ E ^

Most Corporations pay at least twice as much to full-time employees, if the value of benefits, sick days, and paid vacation days is included in earnings, as they pay to part-time employees, whose hourly wages are often higher than those of their full-time colleagues.

We need "they pay" here.

The comparison is made between the action of paying to full timers and part timers. So if you say "they pay at least twice as much to full-time employees as to part-time employees", the comparison becomes defected.

Just another example:

I eat twice as much as she does or she eats.
not I eat as twice as much as she.
