IMO E.

The purchase of color-printing division is what makes the company the largest manufacturer

In Options A, B, C it appears that the 'part if deal is making it the largest manufacturer ..'
Option D changes the meaning... It means that the purchase was done to make the company the largest manufacturer. However what original sent means is that the purchase makes it the largest manufacturer .. The purchase was not made with the intension to make it the largest manufacturer.

(A) .... -> $950 million is not the part of the deal
(B) million, a part of a deal that makes -> $950 million is not the part of the deal
(C) million, part of a deal making -> making is incorrect
(D) million as a part of a deal to make -> changes the meaning buying leads to making it largest manufacturer
(E) million as part of a deal that will make -> this is correct


IMO E


OA is E.

COuld you explain why 950M is not part of the deal?

and what does the term "as part of a deal that will make " modify?

the statements in A,B and C says $950 million,a part of the deal which means they say $950 million is a part of a deal clearly and does not associate with entire sentence of buying the firm for 950 million
hence eliminated In E it rightly says invests $950 million as part of a deal WHICH makes the company .....

I hope this clears
