Can someone explain me this question? I think the bold version is a good choice. but the answer explained in the book says neither of them are correct. Someone has some thoughts?

MGMAT - SC 4th Ed - Page 25 - Q2
==============================

The driver took the people for a ride who had been waiting.

the people who had been waiting for a ride.

* Underlined portion may contain one or more errors. boldface choice changes that. but both of them may also be incorrect.

The answer provided for this question is that both of them, underlined and boldface are incorrect. the explanation is that the boldface corrects the statement that it is the people who had been waiting. but also introduces that it was the people who had been waiting for ride which is not justified saying it changes the meaning and so its not justified. so both the choice could be wrong.!!

The driver took the people for a ride who had been waiting.
'who had been waiting' is supposed to modify 'people', so it should touch the noun it modifies. it seems that 'who had been waiting' is incorrectly modifying 'ride' .. this doesnt make any sense

the people who had been waiting for a ride.
now 'who had been waiting' correctly modifies 'people' ... but 'for a ride' at the end alters the original meaning

the original sentence said ... 'the people who had been waiting' ---> here it does not necessarily mean that they were waiting for a ride
the second sentence now suggests that people were waiting for a ride ... this change of meaning is unjustified.
