Hi,

In option B we need a comma before "a number".

Also as per the meaning of the sentence it is the "consultants" modifying the clause.. "In order to make skiing smoother, safer, and more enjoyable"

but rightly speaking, the action is taken up by "the resorts". so B is out.

C is wordy and not parallel. Also "in the interest of" is a wrong usage as per the context of the sentence. usually it means favoring something.

A as such has no errors.

Kindly underline the portions in the question which are said to have the error.

Regards,
Dom.

B is missing a comma , C , D, E distorts the meaning. by PoE, A is the answer.

Why not B or C?



My answer:
=======

A

A] In order to make skiing smoother, safer and more enjoyable, a number of resorts have hired consultants.



B] In order to make skiing smoother, safer, and more enjoyable a number of consultants have been hired by resorts.
Misplaced Modifier.


C] In the interest of making skiing smoother, safer, and able to be enjoyed, a number of resorts have hired consultants.
Poor Grammatical construction.


D] To make skiing smoother, safer, so that you can enjoy it, a number of resorts have hired consultants.
Poor Grammatical construction.



E] To make skiing smoother, also safer and enjoyable, a number of resorts will have hired consultants.
Poor Grammatical construction and Tense Issue.





Feel free to correct me, if I am wrong anywhere. :-)
