In an unprecedented display of bipartisanship, the House of Representatives are expected to unanimously approve a bill that will result in as many appropriations for national parks as have been made during the last four administra- tions combined.

(A) are expected to unanimously approve a bill that will result in as many appropriations for national parks as have been made during the last four administrations combined

(B) is expected to unanimously approve a bill that will result in as many appropriations for national parks than have been made during the last four administrations combined

(C) are expected to unanimously approve a bill that will result in as many appropriations for national parks than have been made during the last four administrations combined

(D) is expected to unanimously approve a bill that will result in as many appropriations for national parks as have been made during the last four administrations combined

(E) is expected to unanimously approve a bill that will result in as many appropriations for national parks as the last four administrations combined

First do the 2-3 split since the House of Representatives is a single entity not plural. so we take out A and C and left with B C E. Now B has idiom error 'as many than',and should be 'as many as' now left with D and E the comparison in the E is wrong since the appropriations cannot be compared with administrations,so we are left with D,which is correct.

you mean we are left with D, which is correct. Am I right? left with E must be a typo.

I think split infinitive -> "to unanimously approve" is not supported in GMAT
