Note: This GMAT question involves a little bit of economics language - inflation, sales, numbers, financial halves of the year, etc. At the core of the sentence is basic English grammar usage. Your job is to figure out if there is a better way to phrase the intended meaning of the sentence.
The amateur GMAT test taker might look at this question and think it's testing you on a basic English idiom:
Is it supposed to be:
increasing expectations THAT
increasing expectations OF
Remember, the GMAT is moving away from GMAT questions that require you to know intricacies of the English language in terms of idioms. So while it seems like this question might be asking you which expression is correct, thinking in this way is actually the booby trap. There's more to this question than the simple choice between "increasing expectations OF" and "increasing expectations THAT" - so don't waste time on stuff that doesn't matter.
