C seems to be the best.

"three times the price" of what?

"three times the price that the drug maker charges on similar products".

Hi mates,

uf! for me these short questions are the most difficults! Thanks for posting it!

IMO C

But I'm not sure becasue That should be close to the word that modifies, which in this case is price:

A new hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price that the drug's maker charges for another product with the same active

However, "in milligrams" is in the middle, so that makes me think if E would be correct...

But I bet for C

OA?

Cheers

"three times the price" of what?

"three times the price that the drug maker charges on similar products".

On a second look, this sentence looks as if it is in the comparative form. Hence, "than" is more appropriate. I will go for B.

B wrongly compares the price with a verb (drug maker charges)

I'll go with D

I think "three times the price...... requires "of"

OA..?
