This is a comparison question
X more likely ..than Y
Here X and Y should be parallel and 'than' should be immediately followed by a noun or pronoun.

POE:
(A) what men experience : perfectly correct as what represents financial management difficulties. Hence X and Y are parallel.
(B) men’s experience would : Incorrect --> here X and Y are not parallel
(C) are those that men experience Incorrect --> than should be followed by noun/pronoun
(D) financial struggles of men : Incorrect --> X and Y are not parallel
(E) men’s financial struggles do : Incorrect --> as X and Y are not parallel

Option A is the answer

(E) men’s financial struggles do



Here we're comparing difficulties that women experience to difficulties that men experience
(A) what men experience - this can be read as ' difficulties that women experience than difficulties men experience' - Seems unparallel. Eliminate
(B) men’s experience would - this can be read as ' difficulties that women experience than men’s experience would' - Not the right comparison. Eliminate
(C) are those that men experience - this can be read as ' difficulties that women experience than are those (difficulties) that men experience' - Right comparison and parallel. Hold onto this one
(D) financial struggles of men - this can be read as ' difficulties that women experience than financial struggles of men' - Not the right comparison. Eliminate
(E) men’s financial struggles do- this can be read as ' difficulties that women experience than men’s financial struggles do (experience)' - Not the right comparison. Eliminate

Hence C

Results of a recent study suggest that the financial management difficulties that women experience are slightly more likely to lead to bankruptcy filings than what men experience.

This question tests your ability to understand the meaning and the correct comparison.

The comparison is between financial management difficulties that women experience and financial management difficulties that men experience.

Now let's get to POE.


(A) what men experience
This is incorrect as we don't know what "What" refers to.

(B) men’s experience would
This is incorrect since the comparison is wrong.

(C) are those that men experience
This choice is correct because of the correct comparison.

(D) financial struggles of men
This is wrong because of incorrect comparison.

(E) men’s financial struggles do
This again is wrong because it changes the meaning.

IMO C is the answer.

The answer is C.

(A) what men experience - the comparison is to the financial management difficulties that women experience, so "what men experience" is not in line with the comparison. It needs to be about the financial management difficulties
(B) men’s experience would - the comparison is to the financial management difficulties that women experience, so "men's experience" is not in line with the comparison. It needs to be about the financial management difficulties
(C) are those that men experience - yes, this makes the comparison to the financial management difficulties of women so it is correct
(D) financial struggles of men - this is close, but not right because the meaning of financial struggles is slightly different from financial MANAGEMENT difficulties (the management of finances is the difficulty, not the finances)
(E) men’s financial struggles do - the "do" at the end has an incorrect usage

This one is about parallelism.

Results of a recent study suggest that the financial management difficulties that women experience are slightly more likely to lead to bankruptcy filings than what men experience.

Error Analysis

Here we have to identify the entity that is being compared, which is financial management difficulties that women experience are, so after "than" we need something like this one... are financial management difficulties that men experience in order to mantain parallelism.

(A) what men experience - Incorrect per error analysis
(B) men’s experience would - not parallel per error analysis
(C) are those that men experience - Seems good
(D) financial struggles of men - Incorrect comparison, financial difficulties vs financial struggles and also we do not have the helping verb "are"
(E) men’s financial struggles do - not parallel per error analysis

So (C) is our answer.

D IMO.

Below are my reasons to eliminate each option.

Results of a recent study suggest that the financial management difficulties that women experience are slightly more likely to lead to bankruptcy filings than what men experience.

(A) what men experience
Wrong. Comparison is supposed to be between "financial management difficulties" of women to "financial difficulties" of men. "what" here can be anything.

(B) men’s experience would
"men's experience" is wrong because "experience" can be anything. Not necessarily "financial difficulties"

(C) are those that men experience
"are those" is wrong. Now it reads "financial management difficulties that women experience are slightly more likely to lead to bankruptcy filings than are financial management difficulties that men experience".

(D) financial struggles of men
Correct. Accurate comparison.

(E) men’s financial struggles do
"do" is unnecessary. Wrong

This is a comparison question.
Comparing difficulties faced by women vs difficulties faced by men.

A - "what" is ambiguous --> does not clarify whether it is referring to the difficulties faced by men.
B,D,E --> difficulties of women is not compared with the difficulties of men in the statement.
Meaning and parallel structure issue

On the other hand C clearly compares the difficulties of both women and men.

Hence, C is the answer.

(A) what men experience
(B) men’s experience would
(C) are those that men experience
(D) financial struggles of men
(E) men’s financial struggles do


Meaning: comparing how the financial MANAGEMENT difficulties that women experience are worse than are those [fin mgmt difficulties] that man experience.

(A) "what men experience" comparing difficulties vs experience, illogical comp;
(B) "men’s experience would" same as above, illogical comp; also, what is "would" referring to? unclear;
(D) "financial struggles of men" this implies financial difficulties, not financial MANAGEMENT difficulties, illogical comp;
(E) "men’s financial struggles do" same as above, illogical comp;

Answer (C).

IMO correct answer is C

Results of a recent study suggest that the financial management difficulties that women experience are slightly more likely to lead to bankruptcy filings than what men experience.

(A) what men experience - Use of "that" in place of "what" will be more profound.
(B) men’s experience would - "would" is used for a hypothetical situation, but according to the intended meaning of the sentence, the result is obtained from a study, not a future hypothetical situation is being portrayed here; also "men’s experience" is not parallel with "financial management difficulties that women experience"
(C) are those that men experience - Correct usage, use of "those" maintaining the correct comparison; also parallel structure is maintained
(D) financial struggles of men - same error as B, it is compared "financial struggles of men with" - "financial management difficulties that women experience" - Incorrect
(E) men’s financial struggles do - Again same error as B - Discard

The question deal with comparing the "financial management difficulties of women which may lead to bankruptcy than what men may experience".

(A) what men experience (INCORRECT - This incorrectly compare the financial difficulties of women to what men experience instead of the financial difficulties of men)

(B) men’s experience would (INCORRECT - "Men's experience would" is a wrong usage of verb tense in the comparison - "would" which is talking about the future is been compared to what is currently happening to women)

(C) are those that men experience (CORRECT - This is correct as it correctly compare the "financial management difficulties of women" to those men experience)

(D) financial struggles of men (INCORRECT - This changes the meaning of what is been compared from "financial management difficulties" to "financial struggles")

(E) men’s financial struggles do (INCORRECT - This repeats the error in "D" above)


Hence answer choice C.
