well..according to me, 'C' seems to be the best. If we go by the conventional method of elimination, sentences with 'instill' should be eliminated because 'instill' means to introduce slowly, mostly used for liquids or feelings. So 'A' and 'D' gone.
B- 'breath alcohol detection was installed' is incorrect.
C- Sounds good to me.
E- No. 'Pennsylvania installed' is not right because Pennsylvania is not an individual.
So I go for 'C'.

Does GMAT SC even test on interchanging words... as in would they trick you with the instill/install word choice? I was reading it so fast and was convinced that A was the correct answer but didn't notice the instill/install trick. That's sneaky...

I don't like answer choice E) because it sounds too colloquial. Essentially they are saying pennsylvania when they mean a governing body of legislators. Furthermore, they alter the meaning of the sentence when they separate the law and Pennsylvania... whereas before it was Pennsylvania's Ignition Law, now its just the ignition law, as if there were some national ignition law that everyone knew about.

I would actually pick C even though the placement of the fragment is a bit off, just because all the other answers are bad.

Peterson's is a terrible test company and you should not be wasting any time on their materials. This question is just one of the many examples why Peterson's sucks.
