(B) to monitor population changes of as many, or
Changes in population is preferred.
'as many' should be 'as many as.'


Better answer would have been 'to monitor changes in the populations of as many as, or', which keeps the original meaning.

However, we must go with C because grammar proceeds meaning in GMAT.

I have seen many other OA with as many as or more than, so what's wrong with A?

And aside from that, why you dont like D and E?

Thanks

In A could for monitoring of population changes of as many as, or of modify annual roadside counts along established routes?
for monitoring : is it a noun modifier or adverb modifier

(A) for monitoring of population changes of as many as, or of
(B) to monitor population changes of as many, or
(C) to monitor changes in the populations of
(D) that monitors population changes of
(E) that monitors changes in populations of as many as, or

[spoiler=C[/spoiler]

I'm quite confused with this SC question. It seems that OA is modifying the meaning of the original sentence.
as many as or more than is not equal to more than...

Even if the contruction seems good, i'm really surprised such a question could have validated a change in the meaning.


Organised in 66 BBS uses Counts …………monitor ……..as many as or more than ……………
You will find that as many / of more than synonymous; A is wrong. Now we have to find which options has used either as many as OR or of more than. Options B does not completely use as many as; as - missing -wrong. Option D &E uses that which wrongly directs the subject as counts rather than BBS; hence wrong. Again its idiomatically wrong to use that monitors than to monitor. Again option D changes the meaning - the population changes !!!. Hece the correct answer C.
