I'd with A.

B and E don't end with "in others" (some...others) and C and D shouldn't even be considered because they don't begin with "to" (from...to)

Please help me understand where i am wrong

I understood this as from XtoY and Z and therefore was trying to make X and Y parallel..
In option E ranging from the potential for political instability in some countries to the shortage of regulations to protect investors in others and a serious lack of information about investments

X=the potential for political instability in some countries
Y=the shortage of regulations to protect investors in others
Z=a serious lack of information about investments

Thanks

Ahaaa!!! the correct logic is ranging from X to (Y+Z). Y& Z must be made parallel to X. You can not simply make Y parallel to X. Try to view the concept in entirety.

There is no such option given as 'ranging from X to Y to Z'. So there is only one condition that substitutes Y. So Y = Shortage of regulation & lack of info. Now make Y parallel to X & you'll have your answer.
