C and D are close but you can ignore D as it is mentioned as New jersy has a population which looks awkward......


Hope it helps

This is a straight modifier problem. In one shot, you can find out what does not hve natural predators. Is it A) wild life officials B) wildlife officials' estimate C) the deer population D) New Jersey or E) the wildlife officials. It is clear only the deer population can have no natural predators. Therefore, C is the instant choice.

Answer (C) is not a case of the double negative. Each ‘no’ occurs in different dependent clauses. The first ‘no’ relates to the absence of natural predators and the second ‘no’ relates to the absence of hunting.

As for the explanation, daagh does a very succinct job of explaining the modifier problem.
