Hi chetan2u,

IMO, in D the modifier "used to.." is quite clear and there seems to be no ambiguity. Can you please explain why C is preferred over D

C is preferred over D because of following reasons:

1. in D, the sentence means multiple exit polls are used to project one winner while the original sentence says exit polls for winners. So, there is ambiguity in D while the original meaning is maintained in C.
2. An Election's Winner vs Winner of an election --> Remember, GMAT prefers the latter unless we don't have any option to select the former.

Hence, though close contenders, C is preferred over D.

Posted from my mobile device

Notice the word "winner" in original sentence and in option D. In the original sentence, we are talking about multiple winners but in D we are talking about only one winner "Election's winner".

Original sentence says there could be many winners of an election not just one, but in D we are told that we have only one winner. So, somewhere I could see meaning is getting distorted. Moreover, as per my point 2 above, I would always prefer to reject D. I hope it is clear now.

Which one would you prefer "pages of the book" or "book's page"?

my reasoning:
eliminated A - wrongly compared
B- seems for two purpose these exit polls are used so wrong and also run-on
D- modifier error
E- same as A
