What I am confused between "to them" and "to themselves" is that I interpret the sentence as "some companies let employees pick benefits for themselves," and I think this shows reflexive.

.To attract the most talented workers, some companies are offering a wider range of benefits, letting employees pick those most important to them.

We will discuss some of the important points here; GMAT is mainly testing here with “ THAT” ,“PARALLELISM”

(A) benefits, letting employees pick those most important to them

Letting is correct as its referring to the benefits. ( THOSE: Plural and it should refer to a plural Noun (Correct)—> So Benefits ( Plural) So use of those is correct.

letting employees pick “benefits” most important to them ( CORRECT)

(B) benefits, letting employees pick the most important of them to themselves. ( use of themselves is incorrect): There should be a proper noun. Ram,Mike any proper noun should be there to refer. Use of THEM is correct here. (SO this opt is WRONG)

(C) benefits and letting employees pick the most important to themselves

Same as B. And benefits and letting is not Parallel ( SO WRONG)

(D) benefits and let employees pick the most important to them

Same Parallel issue ( SO WRONG) how the benefits and let parallel. We know if we are using AND both the side should be parallel. And moreover LET is a verb. Benefits should not be parallel with a VERB ( SO WRONG)

(E) benefits and let employees pick those that are most important to themselves

Same issue as D and B.( WRONG)

B "pick the most important of them" really implies that all employees are picking the most important benefit and thus should all be picking the same benefit.
Do we really need to say "to themselves" also? No. It's really an inefficient version of A that articulates quite clearly that first: benefits appeal to talent, and the companies (b) let employees pick, from the benefits, those most important to them


(A)To attract the most talented workers, some companies are offering a wider range of benefits, letting employees pick those most important to them.

(B) To attract the most talented workers, some companies are offering a wider range of benefits, letting employees pick the most important of them to themselves

C, D and E really simply make as if the "letting employees pick" the benefits aspect is something that the companies intend to use to attract the "most talented workers". To attract X, companies are Y and Z.....
This doesn't make logical sense as the range of benefits should be what appeals to talent
