D and E are both viable options.
I would ignore this SC.

IMO E

D corrects the modifier error, but it was the policies of hitler that caused not the hitler in this context.

Correct me if I am wrong.

A, B and C incorrectly refers to policies instead of hitler. Eliminate.
D has meaning error. Hitler did not the deaths, his policies did. cannot change the original meaning of the sentence.
E should be correct.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This question involves a dangling modifier. Were the policies Germany’s most infamous leader? No. Then they should not go first in the second part of the sentence. That eliminates choices A, B and C. Choice E is not as efficient as D. Choice D is the correct answer.

Dear Bunuel

Why do you tag the source of the question as 'others', while it is Manhattan's question. This will cause problem during the search under Manhattan question.

D: Hitler caused millions of death-deaths may be accidental or may be actively pursued.

E: Hitler pursued policies which led to millions dead. This options conclusively identifies that Hitler pursued policies which led to deaths.

I assume meaning and context beats concision.

I think E should be the answer. What am I missing???

Your thoughts on D Vs E

Hitler caused? A person caused?
Rather than his policies?

THAT should refer to a singular noun, but here it is referring to policies (plural). so choice E is incorrect.

Doesn't option D changes the meaning entirely? His policies were responsible for the slaughtering 6 million Jews but option D states, he himself was responsible. Confused between D and E

A B C is wrong (Modifier issue).
D changes the meaning. It tells that Hitler caused the slaughter, as per the intended meaning , policies have caused the slaughter.
So E should be the answer
