it is a case of 'rather than' vs 'instead of'
in gmat , "rather than" used to compare clauses(actions,verbs), "instead of" used to compare nouns

this leaves us option D and E.
in D comparison is wrong to go home rather than confinement in

E solves the error in D

motion is not subjunctive so that in B and D wrong, under in C is wrong, motion to is correct

Are you sure about the rule of 'that' in this case? IMO,it is not necessary to use 'that' only for subjunctive mood.

to confine them to a hotel.
(A) to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of to confine them to

them in
(D) that would allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day rather than confinement in
(E) to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day rather than be confined to

I think E is clear.
We can't use "instead of" because the verb following it is not parallel with "to go home", so ABC are ruled out.
"confinement" is a noun so it's not parallel.
In E, "be confined" means "to be confined", and it's parallel with "to go home". Also, "deny to do something" is an idiom, so E is the only correct one.

This post was
BOOKMARKED
Judge Bonham denied a motion to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of
to confine them to a hotel.
(A) to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of to confine them to
(B) that would have allowed members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of confined to
(C) under which members of the jury are allowed to go home at the end of each day instead of confining
them in
(D) that would allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day rather than confinement in
(E) to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day rather than be confined to


E for several reasons.
An easy way to start is the use of rather/instead of. Rather is the obvious choice. This leaves D,E. E is correct (parallel structure, concise) for many reasons, while D is awkward and wordy.

B,C,D looks to me like the motion is what allows the jury to go home. I think the result of the motion is what allows them. change of meaning + other mistakes.
in A 'instead of to confine them to a hotel' is wrong.

Hence E.

Reading A again it seems as if the motion is confining the jury...
Do you agree?

I narrowed it to (B) and (E). ended up picking (B)

I picked (B) because I thought "allowed" and "confined" are parallel.

"Judge Bonham denied a motion that would have allowed members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of confined to a hotel."

can someone explain why (B) is wrong???

Judge Bonham denied a motion to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of to confine them to a hotel.

(A) to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of to confine them to
(B) that would have allowed members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of confined to
(C) under which members of the jury are allowed to go home at the end of each day instead of confining
them in
(D) that would allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day rather than confinement in
(E) to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day rather than be confined to

Rule out all but D and E.
D is awkward... E is better

re opening the thread.
How is 'to be confined' parallel with to go home? Isn't A more correct with present tense of confine which is parallel with go

detailed explanation please

E is the best answer.
A- incorrect. "instead of" should combine with an "-Ing" form, not with an infinitive. Also, the phrase, "rather than" is more suitable here because it signifies preference of one thing over another.
B-: incorrect. "instead of" with "confined to" is simply unidiomatic.
C- Wordier. Moreover, the use of "which" is incorrect as it modifies the wrong word "under" instead of modifying the "motion".
D- Unidiomatic: "rather than confinement"
E: The most concise and grammatically correct answer. Also, it uses the Subjunctive Mood which is perfectly suitable in this context.

that is not the intended ||.
The || is between to go home and be confined.
