+1 for E.

(A) the higher profits made when highly paid professionals are placed, requests for whom --> Incorrect idiom

(B) the higher profits that are made in the placement of highly paid professionals, requests for whom --> Incorrect idiom

(C) from the requests for highly paid professionals, who make higher profits for the agencies when placed and whose requests --> Incorrect, changes meaning, benefit is not made solely from the request on its own

(D) from highly paid professionals, whose placement makes higher profits for the agencies and whose requests --> Incorrect, changes meaning, benefit is not made solely from the highly paid professionals

(E) from the higher profits made in placing highly paid professionals, requests for whom --> Correct, rectifies idiom error "Not only X, But also Y", and conveys intended meaning i.e, benefit is made from the higher profits made in placing highly paid professionals

Hence, E.

Temporary-employment agencies benefit not only from the increasing demand for clerical workers but also the higher profits made when highly paid professionals are placed, requests for whom have increased in the recent wave of corporate takeovers.

The intended meaning of the sentence is to say that Temporary-employment agencies benefit from the Increasing demand for X & from the higher profits made through Y.

Parallelism signal is " Not Only....But Also..."


(A) the higher profits made when highly paid professionals are placed, requests for whom - Incorrect Parallelism

(B) the higher profits that are made in the placement of highly paid professionals, requests for whom _ Incorrect Parallelism

(C) from the requests for highly paid professionals, who make higher profits for the agencies when placed and whose requests - Wrong meaning

(D) from highly paid professionals, whose placement makes higher profits for the agencies and whose requests - Wordier

(E) from the higher profits made in placing highly paid professionals, requests for whom - Concise & maintains parallelism


Answer E.


Thanks,
GyM

(A) the higher profits made when highly paid professionals are placed, requests for whom (paralelism issue,"from" is missing)

(B) the higher profits that are made in the placement of highly paid professionals, requests for whom (same issue as with A)

(C) from the requests for highly paid professionals, who make higher profits for the agencies when placed and whose requests (meaning error, the request is for professionals, and option C says that proffessionals request )

(D) from highly paid professionals, whose placement makes higher profits for the agencies and whose requests (same issue as with C)

(E) from the higher profits made in placing highly paid professionals, requests for whom (no parallelism issues. correct meaning )
