Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
A is same as B but as well as is not as concise as B
C implies that a drop in oil prices should lead to fear about inflation which is wrong and changes the meaning of the sentence. The drop in oil prices should lead to a lowering of fear...
D; passive form to be avoided and also lack of parrallellism
E; again passive form and even more convoluted
One view of economy contends (something)
a large drop in oil prices (noun)
should eventually lead to
a lowering of interest rates (effect=noun) and a lowering of fears about inflation , a rally in stocks and bonds, and
a weakening of the dollar.
Only B and C are parallel because these choices use "a" before each noun.
"along with" is either used as adverb or adjective. What you need is a
conjuction to combine two nouns.
