School desegregation has worked well in Buffalo,
New York, in part because parents and teachers
were given major roles in designing the city's magnet
schools, because extra federal funds were allocated
to make each school unique
, and because the federal
judge enforced desegregation orders.

(A) because extra federal funds were allocated to
make each school unique
(B) because of the allocation of extra federal funds
that make each school unique
(C) because each school is made unique by allocating
it extra federal funds
(D) extra federal funds were allocated in order to
make each school unique
(E) extra federal funds were allocated for making
each school unique

Can some one correct if i am wrong on ans choice E ----it is not parallel. I have a doubt about allocated to / allocated for

+1 A

E is out because it is not parallel.
"To" is necessary because the sentence wants to show that there is a purpose or objective.

option E and D were eliminated because it is not parallel with the rest of the sentence. The questions listed 3 items which must be started with the word "because" but options E and D did not follow this rule.

Among option A,B and C

Option B started with "because of" not "because". so eliminate it.
Option C is in in-direct speech. eliminate it

Answer is A

could somebody explain the usage of allocate.
Whether it is allocate for or to.
BTW in B, because of is followed by a noun phrase and is not parrallel to the the second because clause

When in doubt, one can refer to the gmatclub's comprehensive GMAT Idiom list, which lists 'allocated to' as a gmat idiom.
