Need a as much.. as, so (A) is out. Value of benefits, sick days and paid vacation are plural, so need a 'are'. (B) is my choice.

Will go with E
Reasons:
1. "is" is correct ... the value of X is ... (A/B out!)
2. corporations pay twice as much to X as they pay to Y ... is parrallel (is paid kills the parrallelism)

You're right with the idiom. But when we have a list of items following the word value, is it still singular ?

OA is E.

Talking bout a point, which ywilfred mentioned here, I have a quiz.

the average of scores (is / are)
the number of people (is / are)
the total of scores (is / are)
the rest of people (is / are)
half of people (is / are)
3% of people (is / are)

The answers will be followed soon. Let's try!
