    41. According to a study published by Dr. Myrna Weissman, only one percent of Americans born before 1905 had suffered major depression by the age of seventy-five; of those born since 1955, six percent had become depressed by age twenty-four.

    (A) only one percent of Americans born before 1905 had suffered major depression by the age of seventy-five; of those born since 1955, six percent had become depressed by age twenty-four
    (B) only one percent of Americans born before 1905 suffer major depression by the age of seventy-five; if they are born since 1955, six percent become depressed by age twenty-four
    (C) of Americans born before 1905, only one percent of them have suffered major depression by age seventy-five, but six percent of those born since 1955 do by the age of twenty-four
    (D) major depression is suffered by the age of seventy-five by only one percent of Americans born before 1905, and by age twenty-four by the six percent born since 1955
    (E) Americans born before 1905 suffer major depression by the age of seventy-five only one percent of the time, but six percent of those born since 1955 did so by age twenty-four

    OA is "A"

    42.According to a survey of graduating medical students conducted by the Association of American Medical Colleges, minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than are other graduates in planning to practice in socioeconomically deprived areas.

    (A) minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than are other graduates in planning to practice
    (B) minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than other graduates who plan on practicing
    (C) minority graduates are nearly four times as likely as other graduates to plan on practicing
    (D) it is nearly four times more likely that minority graduates rather than other graduates will plan to practice
    (E) it is nearly four times as likely for minority graduates than other graduates to plan to practice

    OA is C

    Please explain

    OA is "A"

    Can somebody explain?
    B - incorrect tense
    C - second part of sentence is awkward
    D - incorrect tense
    E - 1% percent of the time or 1% of the Americans?

    Hence A
