[quote="leeye84"]73. Alaska regularly deposits some of its profits from the sale of oil into a special [u]fund, with the intention to sustain the stateтАЩs economy after the exhaustion of its oil reserves.[/u]

Straight (C)

(A) fund, with the intention to sustain the stateтАЩs economy after the exhaustion of its oil reserves
--- worng: 'the exhaustion of its oil reserves' is awkward; in addition, I don't think that using ', with...' is correct...
(B) fund, the intention of which is to sustain the stateтАЩs economy after they have exhausted their oil reserves
--- worng: pronoun 'they' is wrongly referring to the subject 'Alaska' (singular)
(C) fund intended to sustain the stateтАЩs economy after oil reserves are exhausted
--- correct
(D) fund intended to sustain the stateтАЩs economy after exhausting its oil reserves
---- wrong: changes the meaning; 'after exhausting its oil reserves' sounds like if the 'fund' were exhausting the oil reserves!
(E) fund that they intend to sustain the stateтАЩs economy after oil reserves are exhausted
---- wrong: again, same problem with the pronoun 'they', the subject is 'Alaska' (singular)

In addition to Aim Higher's comments - exhausting points to funds - creating a false impression that the funds would exhaust the oil reserves.

Why is the answer C but not D?


D- Changes the meaning of the sentences. It means the funds are exhausting the oil reserves
