Could someone please help me with this question.Found it in Kaplan GMAT Premier and the OA there is E, but I cannot arrive at E in any way. I believe that E has comepletely done away with the opening phrase in the question, "In an effort to determine whether changes....".. So how can it be correct?

what i could think in this problem that ....
"In an effort to determine whether changes in diet and exercise can reverse coronary heart disease" for this modifier Medicare is doer of action, hence it cannot modify elderly or any thing else .. hence reach left with only D and E .. out of these two E is better..
please correct me If i am wrong or missing something

Agree with this. "Spend...to reduce" sounds better than "spend...for reducing" to me.

Hi Experts, is OA correct? Option E seems to suggest that risks will be reduced in 1,800 elderly patients.

Yes, that is the conveyed meaning in Option E - the program is about reducing life related risk factors in 1800 elderly people. The cost of the program is $12,960,000 - this money will be spent for reducing risk of ONLY those participating 1800 people.

As you have correctly noticed this meaning does not seem quite logical: The correct meaning required to be conveyed seems to be as follows:
1800 People will participate in a program. The program (costing $12,960,000 ) is to reduce reduce lifestyle-related risk factors (IN GENERAL - NOT JUST FOR THOSE 1800 PEOPLE).

the answer should be E
A is wrong as 1800 patients can't be the subject rather should be object and here in option E the medicare is sub.

Hi sayantanc2k,

B is wrong because ".....over the next three years in a program to reduce.."
Is my understanding correct?
