Using the average wage of $200 a day to value workers’ time, and assuming that people who could ask more questions online would, the analyst estimated the search engine’s worth might be approximately $300 annually to the average worker.



A) Using the average wage of $200 a day to value workers’ time, and assuming that people who could ask more questions online would, the analyst estimated the search engine’s worth might be $300 annually to the average worker. --- When you use a word as estimated, then the proper style is to introduce the estimated part by the connector 'that'[color=#0000ff][/color]

Perhaps we can say, the analyst estimated the value 'to be,' but such a choice is not given.
'

B) Using the average wage of $200 a day as a value of workers’ time and the assumption that people who could ask more questions online would, the analyst estimated the search engine’s worth might be $300 annually to the average worker. --- Straight out -- 'using … and the assumption' are not parallel


C) Assuming the average wage of $200 a day as a value of workers’ time and that people who could ask more questions online would, the analyst estimated that the search engine might be worth $300 annually to the average worker. --- 'Assuming the average' is not intended in the original.


D) Assuming the average wage of $200 a day as a value of workers’ time and the fact that people who could ask more questions online would, the analyst estimated that the search engine might be worth $300 annually to the average worker. --- same problem as in C

E) Using the average wage of $200 a day as a value of workers’ time, and assuming that people who could ask more questions online would, the analyst estimated that the search engine might be worth $300 annually to the average worker -- error-free and clear.

There appears to be a comma error in this option which threw me off completely. The comma after workers' time is wrong since there are only two parallel elements in the list. Does this seem incorrect to anyone else?
