in B, '20 years or younger' wrongly modifies 'arrests'.... the arrests arent 20 years or younger....the arrests are happenning now.....its the people comitting the crime who are aged 20 years or younger...

hope that helps

SEE THE SENTENCE THIS WAY:

In the United States, more than half of all arrests for serious crimes against property are [u]of 20 years olds or younger.

Now you cant say
1) ARRESTS are PERSONS
2) ARRESTS are 20 YEARS OLD
3) ARRESTS are of 20 yrs olds or younger

These all generates nonsensical meaning and hence are just incorrect.

NOW TO OPTIONS:

a) of 20 years olds or younger

--> This option states that ARRESTS have some age--> ITS WRONG.

b) 20 years old or younger

c) of persons 20 years old or younger
--> CORRECT

d) persons 20 years old or less

e) 20 years old or less


Hope this helps...!!
