(A)
==> All the student's is awkward? It is the whole class or a student who needs to fulfill the requirement?

(B) Except for needing to take once class in history and one in biology, the student has fulfilled all of his requirements for graduation.
==> 'except for needing to take' is awkward

(C) The student has fulfilled all of his graduation requirements except for one class in history and one in biology.
==> Sounds okay!

(D) Except for one history class and one one biology class, the student has fulfilled all of his graduation requirements.
==> Guess its okay too but prefer (C) for the active voice

(E) Aside from the history class and biology class that he needs to take, teh student's graduation requirements have all been fulfilled.
==> Inactive voice

The OA is D
I was confused between C and D and chose C for similar reasons as outlined by TeHCM
This is from Kaplan 800.
The OE to choose D over C is, "the meaning of C is less clear than that of D because of the confusing word order of C. Therefore, D wins."
I am not convinced of the OA and OE.
Any explanations?

Seems Kaplan needs to participate in this forum before writing a gmat book. we should teach these people that D is confusing not C.

I picked C, can anyone explain me why D is better? I don't think it is as the Professor said.

In D, the phrase "Except for one history class and one one biology class" is followed/modified by "the student", which cannot. if "Except for one history class and one one biology class" were modified by related nown such "all classes orrequirements", it would be ok.
again OA according to kaplan could be D, imo its not correct.

I also picked C...

But looking closely, D looks more parallel - "one history class and one one biology class"

The answer should be D

A) The sentence implies that all students need to take one history class and one biology class.
B) Needing to take……. Wrong
E) Wrong Construction
D fixes the misplaces modifier problem.

E - aside is incorrect
B - awkward - except for needing
A - passive
C - think it as not parallel. <b>class</b> in history and one<u>class</u> in biology
Thus D

It's between C and D.

I would go with D.
I don't think D is confusing rather more clear than C.
In C , I can see 'one class in history' is not || with 'one in biology'
