44. The Environmental Protection Agency frequently puts mandatory controls on toxic substances that present as little risk as one in a million chances to cause cancer.
A. as little risk as one in a million chances to cause
B. as little risk as one chance in a million of causing
C. as little risk as one chance in a million that it will cause
D. a risk as little as one chance in a million for causing
E. a risk as little as one chance in a million for it to cause
Can anyone explain this question?
"it" in C and E has no antecedent. Eliminate them.
In A, "to cause" means purpose, not the intended meaning of sentence. In this case, we can use "chance to", England has a big chance to participate in World Cup 2016.
In statistic, we have to use "chance of". Another usage is also wrong such as "chance for", so eliminate D.
The comparison in all answer choice have no problem.
Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks. Hope that helps
