(B)

(E) might be usable if the last part is "nor is it leading to ..." but it is still redundent.

Can you plz point out the split infintive in B ? In E, should it end with it is instead of is it?

split infinitive is when you place an adjective or prounoun between an adverb or verb, for example

to boldly go where.....

here boldly is spliting the verb "go" from its adverb "to". this is wrong...the statement should read "to go go boldly where...."

in the problem

we have leading neither to...clearly we should have leading to neither...

so B is probably wrong...but looked nice, E might be it....whats the OA?

OA is E but I am not convinced the way E is ending. So splitting of infinitiive is not alllowed in GMAT land?
