I believe there is a missing preposition in the correct answer:
Failure in the investment of stock
and in other portfolios

otherwise, the sentence is illogical:
failures in the investment of stock
+ other portfolios

caused smth..
this doesn't make any sense.

(A) Stocks and portfolio investment failures
(B) Failures of stocks investments and portfolio investments
(C) Failures in the investment of stocks and other portfolios
(D) Failures of stock and other portfolio investments
(E) Portfolio investment failures, including stocks



In C is "investments of" idiomatically correct? I would say "investments of" should follow a noun who is doing the investments. Ex: "investments of America" or "investments of insurers" etc.

In C "investments of stocks" sounds as if stocks are investing. Errr... illogical!!!

Can somebody explain the POE for this?

Also, is E eliminated just because it's missing comma after stocks?

Super bad question!!

OA is A. It is incorrect because of "role" at the end.

Can anyone challenge my stand??

Can anyone explain to me why D is incorrect, for C to be correct u need a parallel construction. D doesnot have any problem thus
