My pick is B. But I'm little confused with which part of the sentence is underlined. I choose B sicne "than" compares the prices and the charges.

(C) three times the price that the drug's maker charges for another product

(D) three times the price of what the drug's maker charges for another product

I will go with D, but still I am not able to say why C is wrong.

A new hair-growing drug is being sold for three times the price, per milligram, as the
drug's maker charges for another product with the same active ingredient.

Since the first product sold for three times the price, the drug maker charges another product in the same price.

So, we can use "so" or "as" in the dependent clause.

B. "Than" is to compare one with another. The author is not comparing anything here. He/she is relating two products.

C. "that" - Same thing to compare one with another.

D. and E. "of what" and "at which" - It gave me an awkward sentence.

three times the price ...... the drug's

Logically, speaking the product is sold at 3 times the price of an earlier product.

But I am not sure what is wrong with C. i.e

three times the price, ....that the drug's

for me that is restrictive pronoun for price of the drug.

Can anyone pls explain why of what is better than that here.

Thanks
Amit

IMO A.

Reason : As is used correctly ... and A is followed by a clause that contains a subject and a verb.

water balloons are being sold for 3 times the price, as the water ballon's maker charges for hot air balloons.

water balloons are being sold for 3 times the price, of what the water ballon's maker charges for hot air balloons.

I would pick the second one. I don't see anything wrong in using ''of what''
