Building large new hospitals in the bistate area would constitute a wasteful use of resources, on the basis of avoidance of duplicated facilities alone.
(A) on the basis of avoidance of duplicated facilities alone
(B) on the grounds of avoiding duplicated facilities alone
(C) solely in that duplicated facilities should be avoided
(D) while the duplication of facilities should be avoided
(E) if only because the duplication of facilities should be avoided

I was wondering why "solely in" is not the correct answer
is it (E) however it looks like not strong enough? could someone clarify the weakness of each option, pleassssssse

IMO A, what is wrong with it?
in E, 'if only because' doesn't sound good... is E OA?

(A) on the basis of avoidance of duplicated facilities alonelooks redundant..on the basis of avoidance..is same as to avoid.. hold
(B) on the grounds of avoiding duplicated facilities alonehold
(C) solely in that duplicated facilities should be avoidedsolely in that... does not refer to anything specific.. awkward.. Out
(D) while the duplication of facilities should be avoidedwhile changes the meaning...
(E) if only because the duplication of facilities should be avoidedif only because... looks awkward construction..and if and because.. don't go together.

B is wrong because the idiom is grounds for. grounds of is incorrect.

It comes down to A & E.

This looks like a conditional statement if X then Y. I would take E over A for that reason and also because A has avoidance, which seems to be a noun. I feel that avoid should be used as a verb here and NOT as a noun.

Solely in that is wrong for the same reason as it does not fit the conditional clause. It would not be a waste of resources if duplication of facilities does not need to be avoided.

E for me as well.

I think 'Duplication of facilities' is the correct term here, duplicated facilities is incorrect
'Duplicated facilities should be avoided' refers to the facilities themselves
'Duplication of facilities should be avoided' refers to the act of duplication, which is what we want to avoid.
