In the exam hall, it might be a good means to go about this question this way; look at who could be uncovered. The workers could be uncovered and not the jobs

IN A and D- ‘jobs who’ otherwise could be uncovered for months. In C and E ‘jobs that’ otherwise could be uncovered for months. In A and D, ' jobs who' is horrible, in addition. So all the four are out.

B is the only choice that skillfully dodges the modification trap by using the co-ordinate conjunction ‘and’, splitting the sentence.

IMO B

(A) establish standards that would guarantee wider access to people with past health problems and to workers changing jobs who -A conjunction is required to join this phrases with original clause.
(B) establishing standards that would guarantee wider access to people with past health problems and to workers who are changing jobs and -ing form correctly modifies the part given before this phrase. "to people" and "to workers" are parallel
(C) to establish standards that would guarantee wider access to people with past health problems and to workers who change jobs that -use of "that" in the end- "....who change jobs that otherwise could be..." sounds awkward
(D) for establishing standards that would guarantee wider access for people with past health problems and workers changing jobs who -incorrect idiom "for establish", incorrect idiom "access for"
(E) for the establishment of standards that would guarantee wider access for people with past health problems and workers who are changing jobs that -"for the establishment" sounds wordy, incorrect idiom "access for"

Hi Daagh sir,

I didn't understand ''jobs that'' part in the explanation, why it is wrong?
Please help.

Thanks.

What does that refer to?we do not cover jobs with insurance; it is theworkers. Am I right? jobs that refers to job that will be uncverd for months. This is not the intent.
