After reading the question, I eliminated choices A,C,E.
The fight was between
1. between and among
2. prefer to and prefer over

I chose B, but the answer is D. can someone tell me why 'over others' is correct, and 'to another ' is not.. its litigants , not litigant...

one of the reasons of choosing D over B is that "prefer to" is the correct idiom.. i accept that..
but then.. my question is comparing litigagantS to another, not otherS...

(B) it should be. '...a preferred status to another' in (D) is incorrect.

(B) is hardly a perfect sentence, but among the given choices it is the best.

(D) is the correct answer.

(A), (C), and (E) are easily eliminated ('why do some litigants....' , 'why does one litigant....' are both incorrect constructions and clearly grammatically wrong).

(B) is wrong because it means that the courts are unequally distributed between rich and poor, whereas it is the resources that are unequally distributed, not the courts.

(D) fixes this and is grammatically correct, therefore the best choice.


Hi Gyanone,
Can you please elaborate your point why "'why do some litigants....' , 'why does one litigant....'" are wrong.

Hi Friends,
I got the answer right but Apart from this we have other good differences here for learning.
1. Others/other vs another
2. Unequally vs not equally.

Please share your understanding.

For other vs another I have got some material.
Another
1. One more 2. Use another with single countable noun 3.Also means "a different one" 4. One thing in many things
Ex. Can I have another crisp?
Yes you can have another one.
Would you like another.
I think I will try another snack

Can I get another pencil Vs Can I get other pencil ( In later part there were only two pencils available)

Other
1. Other also mean a different one.
I prefer the other idea
I am going to vote for other one.

2. Before a noun other does not has "S".OR On its own other can have an s
This egg is unique.There aren't any others.

3. Other also means people who are not you.
The others are waiting.

4. Other is a pronoun or determiner, Other is not used exactly like an adjective.Other can not usally have an adverb before it. Other cannot usally be used after a link verb.

rphardu,
It is incorrect to use direct speech without enclosing it in quotes. The said options have direct speech but it is used as thought it were part of the entire sentence, which merges both direct and indirect speech. This is incorrect.

A key take-away is that prefer is not being used as verb. So the question of prefer to vs prefer over does not arise.

D has a serious problem of pronoun reference. It is notclear whether the pronoun ‘another’ is elliptically standing for another litigant or another resource. If it is another resource, what is that another resource other than the courts? With such a blatant ambiguity, I wonder whether D could be the right answer, even if the OA happens to be that.

Is this an OG question? If so, ssshhh, let me bury my doubt quietly.
