The sentence presents a few facts. It says that reorganizing the corporate structure of Nitescheleds cause concern in employees.
Then it goes on to support with an example:
Just as hiring a large number of new workers will lead to a sense of instability and uncertainty among company employees,
restructuring the corporation will cause employees to feel anxious.

Quote:
B) like suddenly hiring a large number of new workers does lead to a sense of instability and uncertainty among company employees,

We can not use like to denote examples, A and B are out.
Idiom tested, Just as X, so Y where X and Y have to be parallel.

Quote:
C) the company employees will have a sense of instability an uncertainty following the sudden hiring of a large number of new workers,

Parallelism issue, X = noun (employees) , Y = restructuring (verb-ing denoting action)

Quote:
D) as suddenly hiring a large number of new workers which will lead to a sense of instability and uncertainty among company employees,

now clause before coma becomes a run-on sentence i.e. one without main verb.
Note that usage of which is incorrect too since it, being a noun modifier, can not be used to denote result of action
and is used to incorrectly modify workers here.

Quote:
E) as suddenly hiring a large number of new workers will lead to a sense of instability and uncertainty among company employees,

And we have our winner. X= hiring , Y = restructuring.
suddenly is a modifier modifying hiring. (Think how hiring took place, it took suddenly)

E) as suddenly hiring a large number of new workers will lead to a sense of instability and uncertainty among company employees,

In option A, since "just like" is used, it must be parallel with "reorganizing the structure". This is not the case hence it's wrong.
In Option B, "suddenly hiring..." is parallel with "reorganizing the structure", but "hiring" is a verb and not a noun. So use of "like" is incorrect and instead we will use "as".
In option C, "just the company employees will..." doesn't make any sense at all.

The correct idiom is "Just as...so will.." which can be seen in options D and E, but in option D, the use of "which" is unnecessary. Option E is the best choice and should be the answer.

The answer is E

E) as suddenly hiring a large number of new workers will lead to a sense of instability and uncertainty among company employees,

In D, the word "which" is not suitable.

Idiom is Just as X , so Y
In D, “which” is unnecessary.

So, E is correct

Project SC Butler: Day 55 Sentence Correction (SC2)

Reorganizing the corporate structure of Nitescheleds will be a cause for concern for the employees; just like the company employees who will have a sense of instability and uncertainty following the sudden hiring of a large number of new workers, so restructuring the corporation will cause employees to feel anxious.

A) just like the company employees who will have a sense of instability and uncertainty following the sudden hiring of a large number of new workers,
B) like suddenly hiring a large number of new workers does lead to a sense of instability and uncertainty among company employees,
C) the company employees will have a sense of instability an uncertainty following the sudden hiring of a large number of new workers,
D) as suddenly hiring a large number of new workers which will lead to a sense of instability and uncertainty among company employees,
E) as suddenly hiring a large number of new workers will lead to a sense of instability and uncertainty among company employees,

OFFICIAL EXPLANATION

• Punctuation: A colon (:), semicolon (;), and dash (—) replace connecting words.
They are usually used to draw our attention to the connection between the different parts of the sentence.

• Parallelism: Parallel verbs must have the same tense, but they can be a mix of
active/passive or positive/negative forms

• The structure just . . . so suggests that there needs to be parallelism between
the first section of the sentence and the second one.

• The first section begins with reorganizing the structure, therefore the second part
of the sentence should begin with suddenly hiring rather than company employees.
We need an ___ING word (a gerund) in order to maintain parallelism, not an ___ING word and a noun.

• In addition, because the second section begins with a verb (hiring) and not with a noun,
the correct idiomatic expression is just as, not just like.

Just as . . . so . . . will is a common idiomatic expression, which only D and E follow.

• In D, which is unnecessary and breaks the passive structure of the argument.

gadde22 and Niraphan , welcome!

The best answer is that by adkikani . Kudos!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!
