"Try to" and "try and" is a perfect example of how our ear can lead us astray on the GMAT. Even native English speakers grow up hearing people say things such as:

"I'll try and make it to the party."

When we really should have been hearing:

"I'll try to make it to the party."

Unfortunately, we've all been hearing this wrong! It's really an idiom issue, as others have shared above, so it's really not worth trying to explain the grammar behind it; it's just one of those things you have to memorize. There are plenty of idiom lists floating around out there, and I think 15 minutes per day of idiom flash cards is generally a good place to start. This will help ensure that you can identify the correct (and common incorrect) versions of the idioms tested on the GMAT.

Good luck!

Can you suggest any source where I can find free GMAT idiom flash cards?
To try to is the correct idiom? To try for and to try and are unidiomatic?

The non-underlined portion mentions 'this process', so the underlined portion should have something that can be referred by 'this process'.

Could 'to try to recover uranium from seawater' be called a process?

I think 'recovering uranium from seawater' could better be called a process.
