A result; which may, as an example, be the phrasing of
which refers to its previous noun which is "result"---> wrong modification
"as an example" is sandwiched.. the sentence will be: result may be the phrasing..

B result, such as to be phrasing

C result, like to phrase
like is used to introduce example.... wrong usage

D result, as an example, to phrase
again "as an example" is sandwiched... the sentence will be" "to support an intended result to phrase!!!

E result; pollsters may, for example, phrase
pollsters may phrase--- makes sense

good explanation, though, pretty much a long thought process.

The meaning is to explain something in two indipendent clauses. as such, you need semicolon: A and E, A is completely wrong and even reading it is totally a mess.

E in 10 seconds

Hope this helps

Clause post ";" needs a subject "polsters" to stand on it own , only option E has it , hence the answer.

Hey, this might sound stupid but why "to be phrasing" is wrong in B?
Mayny thanks :)
