The correct idiom is the parallel--- 'both about - and about'-, found only in A, the correct choice

E. Corporations need to rethink both (where they focus their philanthropy) X and (how they go about their giving.) Y

Why is answer choice "E" incorrect ?

Idiom could be "Both X & Y"

option C and D are clearly incorrect due to omission of both
as for rest 3 choices we have to check for correct idiom ' both about .... and about ' which is used in option A correctly
option B and E changes the meaning by use of ' how they go about '
correct answer - A

A. Corporations need to rethink both about where they focus their philanthropy and about how they go about their giving.

B. Corporations need to rethink both about where they focus their philanthropy and how they go about their giving.

C. Corporations need to rethink about where they focus their philanthropy and about how they go about their giving.

D. Corporations need to rethink about where they focus their philanthropy and how they go about their giving.

E. Corporations need to rethink both where they focus their philanthropy and how they go about their giving.


Option A has the correct idiom 'both about and about' and mantaine paralellism (by usage of about in both the clause).

Option A is correct.

rethink about - I think it is somehow redundant and wordy...E seems fine to me...

I also think E could be right - could we get an expert to weigh in on this question?
