The correct idiom is "Targeted at"

Who should modify children not schools.

+1 A

Hi Aditi

"Who" cannot modify schools. Schools can be modified by that, which and whose.
Here, who should modify "children"

:-D

D. targeted for is incorrect.
C. that cannot modify children
B targeted towards is horrible

A correct


who cannot modify schools in E. so it has to modify to children logically.. so whats wrong with E..
guess A is marginally better than E because relative pronoun should be near to the noun it modifies. . so A wins.

Re: I-slate is targeted at millions of [#permalink] New post 22 Jun 2014, 19:01
i selected E in this question : I-slate is targeted at millions of children in Indian schools who do not have
access to electricity.


A seems wrong to me : "Indian school children" seems to indicate type of children and is wrong for precisely the same reason as the following sentence is wrong : i met a Boston soldier . the correct sentence would be : i met a soldier from Boston

also if someone is ruling out E for the reason that "who" is referring to "schools" and not to "children" then that is improbable because "who" cannot refer to "schools" as MANHATTAN guide clearly says that "who" should refer to "people"
