1
I. The current changes in the tax rate would raise significant revenue.
 
II. Analysts believe the new tax rate would be very progressive.
» Explain it
E
Both statements supplement each other i.e. they add to each other and carry forward the idea. The best fit is option E-

I. In addition to the current changes in the tax rate raising significant revenues, analysts believe the new tax rate would be very progressive.

II. Analysts believe the new tax rate would be very progressive and furthermore, the current changes in the tax rate would raise significant revenue.

I. Organizations want to cut costs and improve their agility to meet constantly changing consumer demands.
 
II. Today's employees crave flexibility and control of work in their hands.
» Explain it
C
Both the statements have the same tone while stating different sides of the same coin (organization and employees). Since they state perspectives which have the same direction, but cannot be used and option A is eliminated.
 
Option B is also incorrect since thereafter indicates something happening after another event. This is incorrect as there is no indication of a timeline here.

Option D is incorrect as from is used to indicate the point in time at which a particular process starts and is incorrect here. Beside means next to and is incorrect.

Option E clearly does not fit in meaningfully.

Option C is correct-

I. Whereas organizations want to cut costs and improve their agility to meet constantly changing consumer demands, today's employees crave flexibility and control of work in their hands.

II. Organizations want to cut costs and improve their agility to meet constantly changing consumer demands while today's employees crave flexibility and control of work in their hands.

Option C: Further takes forward the same idea and is incorrect as both statements convey opposite ideas.
Option D: Again is incorrect.
Option E: Both the words are incorrect.
Option B: Both the connectors are correct-

Option D- Both do not fit in meaningfully.
