A seems to be the best fit

Team E,

Maybe I even didn't think about it.
My opinion is that "other's" here is too vague.

Ok so here comes the answer

a. of drug dependency and others`prejudicial treatment as well.
b. both of drug dependency and also of prejudicial treatment. – Wrong Idiom

c. both of drug dependency and also from prejudicial treatment. – Wrong Idiom

d. both of drug dependency but also from prejudicial treatment. – Wrong Idiom

e. both of drug dependency and of prejudicial treatment as well.

ok so B, C & E are easy to eliminate.

Now comes the devil A & E

Option E:
We know that E is using a idiom both X and Y BUT but it is also introducing a redundency "as well" so the sentence structure becomes
both X and Y as well - Hence eliminate

the only devil which remains is A

Let me know if I am thinking correct

I chose E. I would have liked to stick to A, but what buggers me is that "otherS" and the apostrophe. Are these typos?

IMO E - Both X and Y (x and y should be parallel)

There is a very slim chance that this is an OG question or a well written question. I would love to know the source of this.

My opinion is A, but only because B-E are wrong.

This is from Bet the GMAT forums...

OA is (e).

I want to know when we use both , why do we need as well....
All of the answers are horrible - this is neither a real GMAT question nor a reasonable facsimile thereof either.

Hi Folks,

Let me chime in by saying this problem looks fishy to me--(A) is probably the best of the available answers, but the GMAT will generally consider "and" and "as well" as redundant. But without the source of the problem, I can't probe further. Unfortunately, since the original post was from 2007, I doubt we'll see the first poster explaining what was the source of this problem.
