Looks like B. A,D and E have modifier errors. C implies that class is a graduation requirement and hence C is also out. what is the OA

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



One of the reasons this question is difficult is because except for and aside from do not create modifiers; the phrases they begin don't describe an unnamed subject or object. Once you realize that, you can see that what really differentiates the answer choices is expression, not grammar. Scanning for differences, you can see that have been fulfilled is a passive and wordier alternative to has fulfilled. Eliminate (A) and (E). Next, graduation requirements is superior to requirements for graduation so eliminate (B). Finally, the meaning of (C) is less clear than that of (D) because of the confusing word order of (C). Therefore, (D) wins.

An 800 test taker knows that many sentences are challenging primarily because they contain unfamiliar syntax or sentence structure. He pauses to understand the sentence before looking for familiar errors.
