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

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!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!
