Must be (C) for the highlighted errors in other options, as "Only" correctly modifies the intended word "participate"

Hey Abhishek,

Don't you think C says girls will ONLY participate whereas the intended meaning should be - girls would participate actively ONLY in a class that were all girls.

Sumit

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The initial sentence is a mess in terms of word order and clarity. Break down the different options. First of all, would participate is the incorrect tense; the verbs up to this point in this sentence have been in the simple present tense and there's no reason to switch into the conditional would. Eliminate (A) and (D). Next, in an all-girls class is far more succinct than in a class if it is all-girls so take out (B). Finally, (C) is the best of your remaining options because it is less repetitive and is more consistent with the meaning of the original sentence than (E). Go with (C).

The correct answer should be: "that girls will participate actively only in an all-girls class".
This means that the girls would not actively participate if the class were co-ed.
