it's between B and E. I think, recoup (reimburse) for is right. charged...entitled (not entitle)

E??

1 min. B for me.
I believe it is "recoup the amount". It is similar to when you say "recoup your losses". You just don't say "recoup for your losses"

but, is Entitle correct in B. Shouldn't this be Entitled? Or, is it a typo?

I'm sure it is a typo B must be it for E does not make sense with "recoup for"

Given that this is not typo, will you still choose the same answer?
I think dj's point is more valid.

I think it's E. Because the "he or she" doesn't specify if the sentence is talking about the employer or the employee, and I believe the idiom is to recoup for

B for me. We need to be clear about who can recoup , so eliminate any choices with he or she ... that leaves B and E. out of those two, B is better .. i think

IMO B.

I don't think recoup require "for" after it.

I think recoup should be used without for. But sometimes you can use for with it. I am not really sure. Anyone has a definete rule for it? Thanks
