Judge Lois Forer's study asks why do some litigants
have a preferred status over others in the use of a
public resource, the courts, which in theory are
available to all but in fact are unequally distributed
among rich and poor.

(A) do some litigants have a preferred status over
others in the use of a public resource, the
courts, which in theory are available to all
but in fact are unequally distributed among
(B) some litigants have a preferred status over
others in the use of a public resource, the
courts, which in theory are available to all
but in fact are unequally distributed between
(C) do some litigants have a preferred status over
another in the use of a public resource, the
courts, in theory available to all but in fact
are unequally distributed among
(D) some litigants have a preferred status to another
in the use of a public resource, the courts, in
theory available to all but in fact not equally
distributed between
(E) does one litigant have a preferred status over
the other in the use of a public resource, the
courts, in theory available to all but in fact
they are not equally distributed among


I thought D to be the ans..but OA says B..isn't 'prefer over' wrong idiom.

To me "preferred status to another" sounds awkward.
Hence D is not correct.

Prefer X to Y is correct Idiom.

But, here main verb is not prefer but is in an participle form (adjective) for the noun 'status''.
So, this use should not be compared to the use of prefer to/over.

Also, Comparison between some litigants (plural) and others (plural) is correct in B.

I go with B.

Prefer X to Y...X and Y should be nouns , so it doesn't apply here.
eg. I prefer coffee to tea.

Here we are talking about preference, so prefer over is correct.
