good one..!...

I would go for A....

Paul...I know that 'ranging' is a more appropriate word here....but in option D...there is no indication as to what 95% is representing and that made me choose A...(going for the best choice than the right choice)

D is most concise way of expressing the idea.
More simply put, the sentence can be simplified to: A survey of 72 playgrounds in private child-care centers found that 95 percent had unsafe conditions

The statistics refer to the private child-care centers. "A" is very wordy with "them and they" following each other.

Thanks Paul..!

Agree that A is wordy and the example that you have quoted does make things clearer but in the context of this sentence I think '95 percent' should have some reference to private child-care centers....

Lets see what others have to say.
