Range from X to Y to Z is idiomatic

Eliminate C and D

Okie just one more clue

"investing abroad" in the stem and hence "investment in others" ( meaning investing in other schemes or portfilios)

Choose B

A for parallelism.
"in others" must be parallel to "in some countries", hence B is out.
E omits it altogether.

Nicely explained!
It is like range from X to Y, where Y itself is A and B?

I missed the part in others. Need to learn how to catch such things fast in time.

239. Despite its attractiveness, investing abroad can still pose big risks, ranging from the potential for political instability in some countries to the shortage of regulations to protect investors and a serious lack of information about investments in others.
(A) to the shortage of regulations to protect investors and a serious lack of information about investments in others
(B) to the shortage of regulations to protect investors and in others a serious lack of information about investments
(C) and the shortage of regulations to protect investors and a serious lack of information about investments in others
(D) and the shortage of regulations to protect investors to a serious lack of information about investments in others
(E) to the shortage of regulations to protect investors in others and a serious lack of information about investments

C and D are wrong - from ... to (not and)
E and B: in some countries ... in others
A : range from A to B (I think that "to protect investors and a serious" modifies regulations)
