+1 for B.

(A) studying lower salaries as to their effects on employees’ morale --> wordy and awkward

(B) studying the effects of lower salaries on employees’ morale --> Correct idiom "Effect of X on Y"

(C) for studying what are the effects in employees’ morale that lower salaries would cause --> wordy and awkward

(D) studying the effects of employees’ morale on lower salaries --> Opposite

(E) studying what the effects lower salaries would have on employees’ morale --> wordy and awkward

Hence, B.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



C is wordy and uses the incorrect expression ‘effects in’. It should be ‘effects on’. D changes the meaning. B is shorter and clearer than A and E. B is correct.
