Straight A. We need "anyone" here. "disposing of" is idiomatic. "disposing of or servicing" is parallel.

(C) anyone disposing of or who services
(D) the disposal or repair of
(E) someone who disposes or repairs


1. "those" cannot be the main subject of the sentence, B out
2. "disposing" and "services" can not be parallel. C out
3. "the disposal or repair of" cannot capture the chlorofluorocarbons", D out
4. the logic wrong, E out

A wins the game

Agree with A.

But i have a question in the subject verb agreement here.
"must capture" doesn't agree with the singular subject.(anyOne). Is it like we should use plural verb when we use "must", "should".

please clarify?

A also.

I only wanted to modify to anyone who xxxx or yyyyy; but the choice is not available. Hence, A.

must works with any singular or plural.

Agree with others - A is the best.

B is incorrect because the correct idiom is dispose of. It sounds strange to say that someone will dispose something.

Did you rule out D and E seeing repairs? Original sentence is not talking of repairs. I feel E also meets all criteria, its just that it talks abt repairs....disposes and repairs are parallel in E

(A) anyone disposing of or servicing
(B) those who dispose or service
(C) anyone disposing of or who services
(D) the disposal or repair of
(E) someone who disposes or repairs


B- those who cannot start a sentence
C- not ||
D wrong because of the usage
E - should be anyone.

A wins...

I have one doubt about choice B. what if it said "those who dispose of or service" ...would this be correct.
