Unlike most severance packages, which require workers to stay until the last day scheduled to collect, workers at the automobile company are eligible for its severance package even if they find a new job before they are terminated.

(A) the last day scheduled to collect, workers at the automobile company are eligible for its severance package
(B) the last day they are scheduled to collect, workers are eligible for the automobile company's severance package
(C) their last scheduled day to collect, the automobile company offers its severance package to workers
(D) their last scheduled day in order to collect, the automobile company's severance package is available to workers
(E) the last day that they are scheduled to collect, the automobile company's severance package is available to workers

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Yesterday, I choose correct choice, but it is b/c I remember from one post by Walker. It is not my skill. It is difficult for me to differenciate btw the correct and the near correct!
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

E. comparision ans correct expreesion. E is clearer than D.

"the last day that they are scheduled to collect" in E is better than "their last scheduled day in order to collect" in D.

D for me

Only D and E have correct comparison between "severance packages"
However, in E, you have the following:
"Severance packages require workers to stay until the last day that they are scheduled to collect"
The bold part modifies "last day", and it sounds like workers are collecting the "last day".

D for me.

A, B, and C are out because for comparision issues.

Unlike X, Y is the correct form, or in this case:
Unlike X, modifier, Y...

Only D and E compare severance packages to automobile severance packages.

(D) their last scheduled day in order to collect

This is saying that they have to stay until the last day they are scheduled so that they can collect.

(E) the last day that they are scheduled to collect

This is saying that you have to stay until the last day you are schedule to collect.

There is no day that you a 'scheduled to collect' for a severance package.

Very good, BKK. Your SC skill is good.
When I took this question, I had the familiar logical thinking as U said: workers schedule to collect the "last day".
I choose D too.

It has to be btw D & E as both of this options are doing right comparison
D doesn't sound correct because of last scheduled day
Hence E
OA plz

A. wrong comparison -- packages with workers
B. same as A
C. wrong comparison -- packages with company..

D and E, both uses the corect comparison.

But D is more concise than E and E is wordy as well..Also, in E. workers can not be scheduled.. :) :)

So, D is the answer..

D

It can't be A or B because "Unlike most severance packages,...,workers" is not proper parallelism

It can't be C because "Unlike most severance packages,...,automobile companies" is also not proper parallelism

So it's down to D or E

E is out because "the last day they are scheduled to collect" is wrong

It is D because the worker has to stay until their last scheduled day "in order to collect" which is the proper usage

'E'.

Because of 'in order' seems wordy and akward.

If I m not wrong official answer is D.... GMAT prep ques...

I think E is wrong bcoz "that they are scheduled to collect" is dependent clause...but it lacks an independent clause to depend upon :) ....any other reasons....??

E Changes the meaning of the sentence

...which require workers to stay until...

...their last scheduled day in order to collect, - this implies the workers must stay until their last scheduled day of employment in order to collect the pension.

...the last day that they are scheduled to collect - this implies the workers must stay until the last day they are to receive their pension payment, which is illogical, how could someone receive pension payment if they were still working.

D it is

D) their last scheduled day in order to collect, the automobile company's severance package is available to workers
each worker would have his own date for collecting severence package - use of "their last scheduled day" is correct
E) the last day that they are scheduled to collect, the automobile company's severance package is available to workers
"the last day that they are scheduled to collect" - this means all workers are set a single date for collecting severence package which is wrong

Unlike most severance packages, which require workers to stay until the last day scheduled to collect, workers at the automobile company are eligible for its severance package even if they find a new job before they are terminated

1) the last day scheduled to collect, workers at the automobile company are eligible for its severance package
2) the last day they are scheduled to collect, workers are eligible for the automobile company's severance package
3) their last scheduled day to collect, the automobile company offers its severance package to workers
4) their last scheduled day in order to collect, the automobile company's severance package is available to workers
5) the last day that they are scheduled to collect, the automobile company's severance package is available to workers

[highlight]The correct answer is 4[/highlight], i originally pick 4, could you please explain what is the difference between " their last scheduled day" and " the last day that they are scheduled" and explain the overall topics being tested on this question

thank you very much

u need not consider "their last scheduled day" and " the last day that they are scheduled" this in to consideration while answering this Question Infact i still dint read this part of the Question to answer this.


The usage of Unlike X,Y is tested here in the Question(here X&Y should be of same Tense)

Unlike most severance packages,(Packages should come Here) This happens only in D


Unlike most severance package, [strike]which require workers to stay until the last day scheduled to collect[/strike], ,the automobile company's severance package is available to worker
