Violence in the stands at soccer matches has gotten so pronounced in several European countries that some stadiums have adopted new rules that aim to identify fans of visiting teams and that seat them in a separate area.
(A) to identify fans of visiting teams and that seat them
(B) to identify fans of visiting teams and seat them
(C) to identify fans of visiting teams for seating
(D) at identifying fans of visiting teams so as to seat them
(E) at identifying fans of visiting teams and that seat them


Please, can you give example for proper use of "so as"

B.

A and E have incorrect parallelism.
D has incorrect idiom. "so as to" is not right.
C sounds awkward.

I remember reading somewhere (mgmat sc?) that "so as to" is always wrong.

B is correct
A & E has incorrect parrallelism
"aim to" is better than "aim at"

i love this question.

it tests subordination.
Only A & B are grammatically correct and it is only B that connects the idea without subordinating the "seat" clause.
