The political action group focuses on issues that span from public transportation, the death penalty, and constitutional and tax reform.

A) public transportation, the death penalty, and constitutional and tax reform
B) public transportation, the death penalty, and constitutional reform to tax reform
C) public transportation, the death penalty, to constitutional and tax reform
D) public transportation to the death penalty, from constitutional to tax reform
E) public transportation and the death penalty to constitutional and tax reform

My question is:
Why D is incorrect? D is using correct idiom from x to y and also it is paralleling the X and Y wrt their context:
penalty (from public transportation to the death penalty)
reform (from constitutional to tax reform)

Please explain.

D is right because for correct sentence construction it has to be in the form span from A 'to' B, C 'to' D.

Hope this helps

D seems incorrect to me because public transportation and the death penalty are unrelated. Use of 'to' indicates a range of the issues covered by the group.

E) public transportation and the death penalty to constitutional and tax reform
It is the best formed of all the options.

I go with E. Whats the OA.
