SC continues to be my nemesis...but let me try

would welcome any comments / corrections to my approach

gist of the original sentence is "ranging from.......". so correct use of idiom says, it should read
"ranging from A to B". But in this case the sentence is talking about multiple things
'shortage of regulations to protect investors' and 'lack of information'. So my take at the right use of GMAT english is to try "ranging from A and B to C".

Only D fits and that's my pick for an answer...

Raging from x to y....so C and D out and in remaining three options B and E are not making any sense due to the position of "in others"....therefore IMO A

what is OA?

"in others" seems to be misplaced. B seems to be fixing this. Hence, I will go with B.

scthakur,
IMO "in others" should be for both "the shortage of regulations to protect investors and a serious lack of information about investments"

B may be incorrect because it puts "in others" for only "a serious lack of information about investments"
