For the first one B and E are out since "they" refer to rural migrant worker. C is too wordy. Between A & D i would go for A.

For the second one since the sentence is of a subjuctive form it should be in present tense. hence A and B are elimnated. E is too verbose. Between C and D. Ddoes not make sense Hence C. :)

How could I not see this first time...D is the answer for the first.Here's why:

A and C are out as it seems that the question itself is doing the assessing.
B and E lack a referent for 'they'.

For the second one...C is clearly the answer:It is the fee that ranges from X to Y and not the months as stated in A.Also the correct idiom is 'requires X to do Y' if 'requires that' doesn't fit in.

For first - D
Correct modifier. Clear pronoun reference for 'they'.


For second - C
'requires X to do Y' is the correct idiom.
A and B are supposed to use subjunctive mood. D and E are unidiomatic.

Can you please explain the modifier problem here ?? How is the question itself doing the assessment??
