A. 'to do it' is awkward construction. Whenever some action is to be referred, we use 'do so' rather 'do it'. 'would' is necessary to indicate the 'probable future'.

B. Same as A.

C. 'this' wrong pronoun.

D. Correct.

E. Same as A. Except 'would' part.

The correct usage is "to do so" not "to do it".
only D has the correct usage.

Hi,

OG presents this as a pronoun reference error because of use of 'it' and 'this'. Need help in understanding why so. Help please.

(A) to do it rewards
(B) doing it rewards
(C) to do this would reward
(D) doing so would reward
(E) to do it would reward

Correct answer D...

It has no proper antecedent...
so A B E eliminated.
C awkward structure.

D îs correct since "doing so" is the idiom/phrase correctly used here.

So 'it' and 'this' cant be used to refer to an action and they can be used to refer to only a concrete noun?


Some experts, please confirm this...

Parliament did not accord full refugee benefits to twelve of the recent immigrants because it believed that to do it rewards them for entering the country illegally.

it is relative pronoun and GMAT doesn't like it to refer to action. - :)

(A) to do it rewards - Incorrect
(B) doing it rewards - Incorrect
(C) to do this would reward - "to do so would reward" - is correct
(D) doing so would reward - doing so is the perfect idiom to denote an action.
(E) to do it would reward - Incorrect
