Vivek,

My choice is E.

Whenever you have not only ...but also....you need a parallel structure. In this case you need not only from ...but also from. Hence A and B are out. C and D make it sound like the highly payed professionals are requesting whereas what you need to convey is the highgly paid professionals are requested. E correctly does this by 'requests for whom'.

I initially chose B. But after reading the explanation E will be correct.

Sentence has parallel issue: (not only X but also Y – both X and Y needs to be parallel)

(A) the higher profits made when highly paid professionals are placed, requests for whom (not parallel – eliminate it)

(B) the higher profits that are made in the placement of highly paid professionals, requests for whom (not parallel – eliminate it)

(C) from the requests for highly paid professionals, who make higher profits for the agencies when placed and whose requests (sentence parallel is Ok but has meaning issue – “whose requests” is wrong, it is sounding as though highly paid professionals are making requests. – eliminate it)

(D) from highly paid professionals, whose placement makes higher profits for the agencies and whose requests ( not parallel “from requires a noun/gerund – eliminate it)

(E) From the higher profits made in placing highly paid professionals, requests for whom (Hold it)

Answer: E

The analysis of this question is two-fold:

1) Parallel markers: 'not only...but also' is of course correct idiom - Thus eliminate A and B
2) Modifiers: What did they benefit from? The requests? The highly paid professionals? Or the profits? So therefore E stands

Hope it gives a hand
Cheers
J
