With respect to Q 73 -

Ans is C, since phrase ' With no natural predators and expanses of green surban neighborhoods that allow no hunting' is a modifier of the noun deer population... it follows the rule that nouns should always be place immediately after or before the modifier.

FYI this a GMAT Prep question
73. With no natural predators and expanses of green suburban neighborhoods that allow no hunting, wildlife officials estimate the New Jersey deer population to have grown to exceed 175,000

With no natural.....no hunting should modify the deer population and not the wildlife officials. Also New Jersey deer population is not correct: "New Jersey deer" is not a type of deer.

A. With no natural predators and expanses of green suburban neighborhoods that allow no hunting, wildlife officials estimate the New Jersey deer population to have

B. With no natural predators and with expanses of green suburban neighborhoods that do not allow hunting, wildlife officials' estimate of the deer population in New Jersey has

C. With no natural predators and with expanses of green suburban neighborhoods where there is no hunting, the deer population in New Jersey, wildlife officials estimate, has

D. Without natural predators and no hunting allowed in expanse of green suburban neighborhoods, New Jersey has a deer population that wildlife officials estimate to have : New Jersey being modified instead of the deer population.

E. Without natural predators and with expanses of green neighborhoods where there is no hunting, wildlife officials in New Jersey estimate a deer population that has

This is a GMAT Prep question OA is C.

Questions 37 and 38 were posted incorrectly. Please refer to the manhattan gmat forum if you want to confirm what I said.
The correct questions are:

37. In addition to her work on the miocene homicide fosiil record, Mary Leakey contributed to archaelogy with her discovery of the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and painstakingly documenting East African paintings.

(A) Leakey contributed to archaeology with her discovery of the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and painstakingly documenting

(B) Leakey contributed to archaeology by her discovery of the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and by painstakingly documenting

(C) Leakey was a contributor to archaelogy with her discovery of the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and with her painstaking documentation of

(D) Leakey's contributions to archaelogy include her discovery of the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and her painstaking documentation of OA

(E) Leakey's contributions to archaelogy include her discovering the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and painstaking documentation of

(D) maintains parallelism
her work(noun)
her discovery(noun)
her painstaking documentation(noun phrase)

38.George Washington Carver dedicated his life to the economic strengthening of the South with improvement of soil and diversification of crops.
(A) the economic strengthening of the South with improvement of soil and diversification of crops
(B) strengthening the economy in the South with soil improvement and the diversification of crops
(C) strengthening the economy of the South through soil improvement and crop diversification OA
(D) the strengthening of the economy of the South through improving soil and crop diversifying
(E) the economic strengthening in the South with improving soil and diversifying crops

C maintains parallelism:
through X and Y : through soil improvement(noun) and crop diversification(noun).

If you are unable to explain why other answer choices are wrong please google the question stem and see what the manhattangmat guys have to say about it. Ron Purewal and Stacy have literally beaten the crap out of these questions. I can explain them in my words , but it is better if you read their detailed explanations (no point re-inventing the wheel).
