In D , the clause " when they vote " seems to modify places rather than people .

In general - modifier should be asclose to what it is modifying.

A,C,E are out for meaning .

So hecnce B remains and is gramatically correct also!

Hope that helps:D

I was not sure with my choice, but still went for it.
Now I realize what is the problem.
Thanks.

Somewhere in this forum I read that Infinitive is not preceded by COMMA.

B. places when they vote, to curb potential fraud

And if my memory is not wrong the post was written by MARCAB.

Yes its correct that an infinitive should not be followed by an infinitive, infact thats what so far I learnt.
D changes the meaning by making "when they vote" to non essential when it should not be a "non-essential".
B retains the meaning and is hence correct.
Hope that helps.

@Marcab

But if I am not wrong ,somewhere in this forum I read your post which said that.

An Infinitive cannot be followed by a COMMA .

Plz clear the air.

Remember, this is not an official question. In official ones, an infinitive will not be followed by a comma.
The rule is valid for official questions but can't say the same for non-official ones.

A proposed law would require people to bring photo ID to polling places when they vote to curb potential fraud.

A.places when they vote to curb potential fraud
B.places when they vote, to curb potential fraud
C.places, when they vote to curb potential fraud
D.places, when they vote, to curb potential fraud
E.places, to curb potential fraud by voting

Can some one tell how to decide placement of command and the subject , which is modified by the "to curb" phrase?

A. places when they vote to curb potential fraud
Vote to curb fraud - wrong meaning

B. places when they vote, to curb potential fraud
Correct placement of modifier. To curb fraud, a law would require people.......photo id to polling places when they vote" correct.

C. places, when they vote to curb potential fraud
Vote to curb fraud - wrong meaning

D. places, when they vote, to curb potential fraud
",when" here comma is not required.

E. places, to curb potential fraud by voting
to curb potential fraud by voting - wrong meaning

wrong meaning is - people are not voting to curb the fraud. it's the that require people to come with the ID when they vote so that fraud could be curbed.

A. places when they vote to curb potential fraud
B. places when they vote, to curb potential fraud
C. places, when they vote to curb potential fraud
D. places, when they vote, to curb potential fraud
E. places, to curb potential fraud by voting

when "when" comes after a comma, it should be with reference to time, not places, so C,D are out,
E : voting is not curb potential fraud,

B gives the proper meaning, A proposed law would require people to bring photo ID to polling places when they vote
to curb potential fraud.
