AMD employees used their creativity, intellect, and ingenuity to develop faster processors than those offered by many competitors, to enable them to gain substantial market share from rival firm Intel.
Correct Answer: E
It is incorrect to compare AMD employees to the Intel firm. You must compare a firm with a firm.
There are two main problems with the original sentence.
(1) the infinitive form to enable needs to be replaced by a phrase that modifies to develop faster. The correct modifying phrase cannot be in the infinitive form and should instead be a participle: enabling
(2) it is not grammatically correct to compare AMD employees (i.e., them) to the firm Intel as you cannot compare unlike parts. Instead, you must compare like parts: a firm (i.e., AMD) to a firm (i.e., Intel).
The correct choice should include to gain substantial market share from and not market share with, which changes the meaning of the sentence.
