Supporters of tax breaks that local governments award to businesses each year to prevent them from moving consider them vital economic development tools while critics denounce the tax breaks as corporate welfare that helps some localities but weakens the national economy.


Quote:
The takeaway

1. A pronoun should refer to the same antecedent in a sentence-- remove A and C.
2. 'Consider to be' is the wrong idiom in GMAT; if you are preparing for GMAT, remove B and E.
D remains

Correct idiom: Consider X Y
Wrong: Consider X to be Y

So the contenders: A, C and D

A: Supporters of tax breaks that local governments award to businesses each year to prevent them from moving consider them vital economic development tools

What is them referring to?
Correct idiom: Award X not award to X
OUT

C: Supporters of tax breaks that local governments award businesses each year to prevent them from moving consider them vital economic development tools

What is them referring to?
OUT

D: Supporters consider tax breaks that local governments award businesses each year to prevent them from moving vital economic development tools
Correct

Just like that D

Supporters consider tax breaks that local governments award businesses each year to prevent them from moving"," vital economic development tools

Should there be a "comma" after "moving" ? Option D is the best option but i guess a "comma" should have been better.

can anyone shed some light on this one ?
