IMO A

The right idiom is "damage to" . B,C,D,E are out

Federal legislation ................. permits (the legislation permits, discard the rest of the stuff in between)

(A) compensating state governments for damage to

In C,D, and E --- giving is redundant as Compensation implies giving

Ans A

Here is an explanation I found on the web for this problem.

Cheers.

In the second one, A, B, and C have modifier issues. "That" introduces an essential noun modifier, but the information following the word "that" is not essential in order to understand the meaning of the words coming before the word "that" - rather, the stuff after the word "that" makes an additional, but separate, point. Also, "that' introduces a noun modifier, but the noun before is not what they're trying to refer to - they're trying to refer to the fact that they work an excessive amount of overtime. That's a whole clause, not just a noun.

To know whether something is essential, try stopping the sentence at the word "overtime." Do you still understand everything that was written to that point? Sure. You've lost the meaning of the extra words, but it hasn't messed up the meaning of the words up to the word "overtime." Then look at choices D and E - they introduce "that" after the words "a practice." Can you stop at "a practice" now and still know what they're talking about? Nope.

Now, between D and E, you do have to know that they consider "has the potential for causing" wordier than "can, potentially, cause. Fewer words, yes, but also just using the verb form (since we're talking about an action, that's preferred to writing the verb in noun form).

Oops is something missing i hope the Question :-D :roll:
hey ,
Kindly post in the question too

You mean A right
OA is A
correct idiom is A
B say for the damaging compensation is given, for the damaging is wrong usage
X permits Y for Z

B


i mean A is right.. I corrected the same in original post.
