Pick A.

D & E compare educators with Burton's emphasis.
In B, it should be "enjoyING" not "enjoy"
In C, I think "that" is not necessary.

I don't agree with any of the answers. I guess something is missing ot something is wrong. As Gayathri pointed out that D, E are wrong because of faulty comparision.

I will say the correct idiom is "substitue X for Y" not "substitute x to y".

B should have "enjoying".

So I am not going for any option.

Thanks

The OA is B. This question is from GMAT885SC and I posted this here as Idid not get this one.

Can somebody explain why B is the answer?
If the OA is wrong, kindly explain if any of the other choices make sense?

Hi as I mentioned in my above post. B seems to be the nearest one but should have "ENJOYING" other than that option B is perfectly fine. So i guess must have some Typo or something.

I Hope that helps.

Thanks

Straight B. substitute X for Y (not substitute X to Y, wrong). D has a S/V disagreement.

Type it clearer next time please, thanks. I couldn't understand what it was asking at first.

B. we need for, so B and D remains. D has possesive noun so its out.
So B remains to win the race.
