According to me the correct sentence should either use the format "as either X or Y" or it should use "either as X or as Y". Only A and E does that.

Answer is A. in E, as shown above, no need to have ", and it will". Other choices have a problem of location of the "as".

I chose A. In B: "either as....or", we need "as" after "or". In C: we have "as either"..."or as"-wrong. In D: the same problem, plus "selling" which is wrong. E affects the meaning of the sentence, because it says that the books will be sold under the "new digital imprint division".

i choose A. (E) breaks the paralelism. We dont use the structure " and it" when we have "it" as referent to the same subject "The largest trade-book publisher in the US". you can study more the grammar point in Ron's explanation here:

hope it helps

A.
E is too wordy and that "it" is quiet unnecessary .

I am unable to spot errors in choice E. I think E does not have any errors. I dont agree with other posters that E is wordy. So I am stuck between A and E. What am I missing?

This is a very good question that exemplifies the importance of understanding the meaning of the sentence in order to arrive at the correct answer:
Check out this video for detailed explanation. Note that I have only discussed choices A and E in the video.


Let me know if you have any other doubts about this :)

works and it will sell them online as either electronic books or as

Reason 1
it and them create an ambiguous PN Issue.

Reason 2
either electronic books or as
Should be "either x or y" "not either x or y as"

Thats why C is wrong.

why would E be wrong, 'them'?

them seems to be referring to 'digital works'.

The catch here is the while the original simply says that the company will publish the digital works to be sold; It does not state that the company itself is going to sell them. May be the selling is going to be through some third party arrangement, whereas, E categorically states that the company will sell them; this is a deliberate distortion of the original intent and hence E is not to be preferred

B. works to sell them online, either as electronic books or
C. works and it will sell them online as either electronic books or as
D. works, and selling them online as either electronic books or as
E. works, and it will sell them online as either electronic books or


Why is C incorrect


The original sentence talks about that publisher will publish some works, but not selling them. Both C & E talks about this extra information and hence they are not valid answers.

In SC questions, we don't try to evaluate the info presented in the question, but we have to do evaluate answers which are not supposed to change question's meaning.
