The OA B should mention rehabilitation center. I feel it is a poor quality question. Please correct me if m wrong about the rehab center thing.

A. reported an increase both in the number of admissions to hospital emergency rooms nationwide that involved drug abuse and a change in procedures used in rehabilitation clinics.

B. reported both an increase in the number of admissions to hospital emergency rooms nationwide that involved drug abuse and a change in procedures

C. reported an increase both in the number of admissions to hospital emergency rooms nationwide that involved drug abuse and procedures that changed

D. reported an increase both in the numbers of admissions to hospital emergency rooms nationwide that involved drug abuse and a change in procedures

E. reported both an increase in the number of admissions to emergency rooms of nationwide hospitals that involved drug abuse and a change in procedures


A, C, D are out. Because there is no parallelism.
Am I right that we choose B and not E because it is correct to use "nationwide" alone, so "nationwide hospitals" does not pass.

B it is.

First of all... It should be " both and " . " Increase in both " is wrong as a change cannot be increased

Between B and E :

B states no. Of admissions to hospital emergency rooms nationwide.

E states no. Of admissions to emergency rooms of nationwide hospitals .. may imply that nationwide is a franchise of hospitals..and the no. Of admissions has increased only in those hospitals named nationwide.

Your distinction is absolutely right. Nationwide hospitals seems to be a franchise of hospitals...whereas hospitals nationwide means hospitals all over the nation.

I believe the underlined part needs to be corrected. "Rehabilitation clinics" is missing in all choices except A
