1) D

2) The correct idiom here is ...'from X to Y'

Idiom for between is ..'between X and Y'

D is the answer.

2) E ? I am surprised

E has 2 problems -
- between 1984 to 1988 is incorrect. It should be between 1984 and 1988 ( even then it looks awkward )
- I believe she was plagued by injuries and that is why she sat down. The injuries did not plague her when she sat down.

1) I believe E uses subject form of the pronoun as b]"the man"[/b] is the subject.

I'm surprised that a whole set of people chose D) for 1.

E) is correct (parrallel construction of comparitives and subjective pronoun)

1. D is not appropriate because, the comparitive degree of wealthy is wealthier and not more wealthy. So, the correct one is E.

2.My answer is D. Simple, precise without any grammatical mistakes.
