OG2018 SC 743- To attract the most talented workers, some

    To attract the most talented workers, some companies are offering a wider range of benefits, letting employees pick those most important to them.

    (A) benefits, letting employees pick those most important to them
    (B) benefits, letting employees pick the most important of them to themselves
    (C) benefits and letting employees pick the most important to themselves
    (D) benefits and let employees pick the most important to them
    (E) benefits and let employees pick those that are most important to themselves

    OA: A.

    This question is testing PRONOUNS and PARALLELISM.

    (A) benefits, letting employees pick those most important to them
    No error.

    (B) benefits, letting employees pick the most important of them to themselves
    Pronoun confusion. We should use "them" to refer to "benefits" while using "themselves" to refer to "employees" within the same clause.

    (C) benefits and letting employees pick the most important to themselves
    - "the most important"... what? We need something to stand in for "most important benefits"

    (D) benefits and let employees pick the most important to them
    - same issue as in C
    - "are offering... and let..." is not parallel

    (E) benefits and let employees pick those that are most important to themselves
    - "and let" not parallel
    - reflexive "themselves" not necessary
