1) I can't understand why "those" in B and C is redundant? I'm thinking "those" refers to the "corporate contributions" given by the large companies. Is it not?
In B and C, the referent for those seems to be contributions, implying the following:
contributions given by large companies.
A contribution = SOMETHING GIVEN.
Thus, it is redundant to say that SOMETHING GIVEN was GIVEN by large companies.
@GMATGuruNY

Can you please also explain why E is correct? I thought the " 's " is unnecessary, because it would mean corporate contributions from Petercom's? What am I missing here?

OA: Few of the corporate contributions to the earthquake relief fund, apart from Peterocom's [contributions], departed significantly from the usual amounts.
The word in bracket iz omitted but implied.
Conveyed meaning:
Few of the corporate contributions departed significantly from the usual amounts.
Peterocom's contributions are an EXCEPTION: they DID depart significantly from the usual amounts.

Mitch!
though, there is no verb after as but its presence is understood..right?
The cost of running nuclear plants is about the same as [the cost] for other types of power plants.

Nice discussion,
Is D, in second question, also incorrect because it has no verb after as?
This line of reasoning is not valid.
The OA to SC107 in the OG13:
The cost of running nuclear plants is about the same as for other types of power plants.
Here, no verb follows as.
