We must use "whether". So D and E are out.

I think C.

1. "visit game parks to see rhinoceroses" is better than "visit game parks and see rhinoceroses"
2. "their" has no clear referent in A and B.

"Have been" in C looks dicey


"and" in A subtly changes the meaning of the sentence.

(C) seems like the safer bet dude.

go C go.

for:
1) using the scared form of GMATical comparison - "whether"
2) resolving the ambiguous reference of pronoun "their".

andy,

In A, "their" in second part can refer to people or rhinoceroses. Can people have their horns trimmed? May be if this park is on a different planet :lol:

go C go...


'D' & 'E' are out.

A - "whether tourists will continue to visit game parks and see rhinoceroses" 'and' spoils the game here.
Sounds as if there are two problems but problem is only one.


B - 'one'? Avoid this. If nothing is better then come back to this.

C - Wow, this is it!

This question was in OG as well

C is the correct answer for the correct tense and modifier
