(A) are in danger of contracting
(B) are in danger to contract
(C) have a danger of contracting
(D) are endangered by contraction
(E) have a danger that they will contract





(A) are in danger of contracting==>CORRECT
(B) are in danger to contract
are in danger to contract disease==>to contract means they want to contract disease....hence its incorrect.
in danger of contracting==>correct usage

(C) have a danger of contracting
use of present perfect tense(have) makes it wrong...its not the case of past coming into present.
(D) are endangered by contraction
completely changes the meaning by the use of endangered(fear to get extinct)
(E) have a danger that they will contract
incorrect use of present perfect tense(have)////use of they is ambiguous(as it can refer to officials or africans)

Tricky one. Though in danger to is concise, in danger of is the correct idiom.
Correct answer A :D
