C is my choice..
It is as difficult to prevent crimes against property as it is against a person.

(A) those that are against a
- OUT verbose - those and that
(B) those against a
- OUT need a subject and a verb after as
(C) it is against a
- Good keep this
(D) preventing those against a
- OUT participle use. no parallelism
(E) it is to prevent those against a
- wordy, can be shorter

folks....b, d, e and A are all out...

C it is...

you have to make this statment parallel...

it is ....it is...

so we are down to C and E...

E I dont what those is referring to? plus the construction is overly wordy...C is short and sweet!

I vote for C) it is against a

simple and concise. it is.. it is parallel .. E is verbose and no sure what does the 'those' refer to?

E is correct, but why can't we assume B as

(it is to prevent) those against a ...

with the part in paraenthesis implied ?

Not quite clear about the rule of omission ...

folks whats wrong with C?....

I can see "those" in E to be problamatic....no one has given a good reason why E should be correct? on the other hand, ritesh and my explanation on C sounds pretty OK to me...

those in E refer to crimes.

E is correct but wordy from my point of view... Ofcourse in GMAT, they want a precise and best answer among the choices.

I think it is time for perezhan to post OA and OE

I am more interested in OE.
