Dear SajjadAhmad,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

This is another question I solved in less than 5 seconds. The structure "either . . . or" is a parallel marker. We have "either to purchase," so we need another infinitive after "or." Only (E) works.

If the difficulty of real GMAT is like a Formula One race tournament, then then difficulty level of this question is like riding a pedal tricycle. Much as riding a tricycle will not prepare you for Formula One racing, this question will fall abysmally short of preparing you for the GMAT.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

B. or they must acquire it (Same as A)
C. or they acquire it (Same as A)
D. or acquiring it (Same as A)
E. or to acquire it (Parallel and correct)

Kudos please if you like my explanation
