4)While most graduate students find that their education has prepared them well for their future careers, some express concern over their education lacking real-world application, having, for example, been given homework that is unrepresentative of realistic scenarios or having been assigned to group projects that do not adequately consider the skills of the individual participants.

A) Unlike elite runners, whose times are calculated from the starter's pistol to the finish line,
B) Besides elite runners, whose times are calculated from the starter's pistol to the finish line,
C) With the exception of elite runners, times for whom are calculated from the starter's pistol to the finish line,
D) Unless the runner is elite, in which case the time is calculated from the starter's pistol to the finish line,
E) With the exception being elite runners, whose times are calculated from the starter's pistol to the finish line,

Not sure why ?


the meaning of the sentence:
if the runner is not elite, the marathon times are calculated using smth.
if the runner is elite - then the time is calculated differently. so basically, we compare how the times are calculated.

A - can't be - compares elite runners with marathon times.
B - besides - out right away.
C - exception of - better exception for - so not good.
D = same as the intended meaning.
E - exception being - wordy. neither of the cases where being is used correctly is present here. so can't be correct.

D for me.

My 2 cents:
C) With the exception of elite runners, times for whom are calculated from the starter's pistol to the finish line,
D) Unless the runner is elite, in which case the time is calculated from the starter's pistol to the finish line,
...marathon times are calculated using a computer chip attached to each competitor's shoe.
The i choose D instead of C was that the structure of D was somewhat sensible - sub-ordinate clause, modifier, main clause
In C we have - modifier, non-essential part, main clause
& also wrong comparison. Thus C is wrong!!!
