Choice A clearly conveys the author's message that 'Some companies intend to offer a wider range of benefits to their employees, so that the employees can choose the benefits that are most important to them (the employees)' --> Correct

Choice B distorts the meaning with the use of 'most important of them'. --> Pick the most important of the benefits to themselves... Incorrect

Choices C, D, and E have parallelism errors. Incorrect

is it from og?

the serious problem with D is "pick the most important". this phrase make unclear meaning. wrong
choice A, "those" refers to "benifits" and so, make clear meaning

a hard problem. I think

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


The answer is A

Present Participle letting correctly modifies the preceding clause .
A correct
B is wrong as it is redundant for use of themselves.
C the clause after and does not have subject hence wrong and wrong to use themselves here .
D Parallelism is not maintained here
E Again parallelism is not maintained here and use of themselves is wrong here

Hi egmat,

I have two questions regarding C .
If themselves in C is replaced with them , will it make C correct? or Do we need to bring in Subject after and in C to make it correct ?

Thanks,
Arvid

Can't believe no one has made a thorough explanation for this one yet!

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

I don't love it. But it's correct. The pronoun locations aren't beautiful IMO. But they are better than they are in Option (B)

Parallelism between "offering" and "letting" is good.

Pronouns: "those" refers to "benefits". "themselves" refers to "employees"


(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.

"of them to themselves" looks nasty to me. But that doesn't necessarily mean its wrong.

Let's look at the pronouns: "them" and "themselves" Okay, if "them" refers to "benefits" and "themselves" refers to "employees" then the sentence will make sense. But the pronouns located after both of the nouns, so we can't be sure. Therefore we can rule the pronouns as ambiguous.


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

This is the tricky one! -- "pick the most important to themselves" doesn't make sense here. "pick the most important... what?" Pick the most important benefits? Okay, that's what we want. But we need some kind of a referral word to clearly convey that we are talking about "benefits". A pronoun would be great. Perhaps 'those".

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

Parallelism Error! "offering" is not parallel with "let"

(E) To attract the most talented workers, some companies are offering a wider range of benefits and let employees pick those that are most important to themselves.

Parallelism Error! "offering" is not parallel with "let"
