A result of the recent election is realizing that in this increasingly urban area, there is now more worry about crime than health care.

A result is the realization , not "realizing" or "a realizing": out A and D.

B)the realization that in this increasingly urban area, they now worry more about crime
C)the realization that in this increasingly urban area, voters now worry more about crime
E)the realization that in this increasingly urban area, concerns about crime are greater

The remaining options are the same till the comma. Then in option B we have"they": who is they? it has no reference: out.

"voters now worry more about crime than health care" or "concerns about crime are greater than health care"? The first comparison is legit: voter's concerns about crime and concerns about health care. The second option states that the concerns (about crime) are greater than health care: not a legit comparison.
E hence is incorrect.

Can someone plz explain the problem with E.


Should be - the realization - Hence, A, D are out
B - They is ambiguous - we dont know what they is referring to
E - Concerns - cannot be greater

We are left with C

[b]Hence, Answer is C[/b]

Option is E is incorrect for two reasons:-

1) Let's have a look at this sentence -
Concerns about crime are greater than health care.
Two entities that are compared are -
a) Concerns about crime
b) Health care (and not CONCERNS ABOUT HEALTH CARE)
How can one compare two items that do not convey any LOGICAL meaning.

2) THAN is used in non- underlined portion, So MORE must be used in underlined portion.

I think that the difference between B and E is of active and passive; Active is preferred over passive, so B is the right option.

A) realizing that in this increasingly urban area, there is now more worry about crime
B) the realization that in this increasingly urban area, they now worry more about crime
C) the realization that in this increasingly urban area, voters now worry more about crime
D) a realizing that in this increasingly urban area, there is now more concern about crime
E) the realization that in this increasingly urban area, concerns about crime are greater


KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



First of all, realizing in the original sentence is wrong because it doesn't really describe a result. Instead, the participle defines a process. Even though the phrasing may sound strange, the realization is correct because, as a noun, realization can logically describe a result. Eliminate (A) and (D). (B) introduces its own unique error with the entirely vague they. Since we don't know what they refers to, the pronoun is incorrect. (C) and (E) remain. (E) sounds fine when read on its own, but if you read it into the sentence you'll see the problem: concerns about crime are greater than [those about] health care. Without those about, the sentence misuses ellipsis. (C) it is.
