I picked up 'E' initially which is incorrect - Can anyone share the details how we can eliminate this. Thanks.

Correct answer is C - In preparing for a major earthquake that is predicted to hit the state, the California Office of Emergency Services is building a satellite-based computer network to identify

why "hitting the state" is a wrong modifier?

(B) In preparing for the prediction that a major earthquake will hit the state, the California Office of Emergency Services is building a satellite-based computer network that will identify= not parallel with infinitive form

(C) In preparing for a major earthquake that is predicted to hit the state, the California Office of Emergency Services is building a satellite-based computer network to identify=> correct answer clear and direct

(D) To prepare for the prediction of a major earthquake hitting the state, a satellite-based computer network is being built by the California Office of Emergency Services to identify=> passive and prepare for prediction

(E) To prepare for a major earthquake that is predicted to hit the state, the California Office of Emergency Services is building a satellite-based computer network that will identify= not parallel with infinitive form

i dont like this prolem or there is inconsistency in gmat thinking.
there is problem " to keep it from being stolent, charcoal is burried..." you can google to find this problem
in this problem, "to do " is used and is not refered to the subject of main clause. (this sentence is from og 10) . if this sentece is correct, choice d above is also correct.
if gmat thinking changes, gmat dose not accept "to do" not refering to subject, it is clear that d is wrong. because our question here is newer, i think gmat accept the idea in choice d.

so, I see the INCONSISTENCY in gmat thinking here.

Archaeologists in Ireland believe that a recently discovered chalice, which dates from the eighth century, was probably buried to keep from being stolen by invaders.

(A) to keep from
(B) to keep it from
(C) to avoid
(D) in order that it would avoid
(E) in order to keep from

I wish you to dicuss more on this port.
