    Temporary-employment agencies benefit not only from the increasing demand for clerical workers but also the higher profits made when highly paid professionals are placed, requests for whom have increased in the recent wave of corporate takeovers.

    (A) the higher profits made when highly paid professionals are placed, requests for whom

    (B) the higher profits that are made in the placement of highly paid professionals, requests for whom

    (C) from the requests for highly paid professionals, who make higher profits for the agencies when placed and whose requests

    (D) from highly paid professionals, whose placement makes higher profits for the agencies and whose requests.

    (E) from the higher profits made in placing highly paid professionals, requests for whom

    You need a "from" for parallelism. Discard A and B.

    Also you need something parallel to "increasing demand for clerical
    workers". So, discard D.

    C incorrectly says that agencies benefit from the requests for
    highly paid professionals and also has an awkward construction for
    the remainder of the sentence

    E has good parallelism and uses correct form "whom"

    I think the answre should be E...since thats the only construction which maintains parallellism...

    from the increasing demand....from the higher profits made
