We are providing the reason for the action 'why countries found ...' hence it should be because of and not due to
due to only modifies noun

Narrows down to A and E
a specific time in 2000 the cases were reported hence reporting is wrong form used in E ( avoid the parallelism trap reporting & spreading)

A is the ans .

I initially struggled a lot on sentences which use because or due to.

The correct answer is A.

Hey GMATNinja mikemcgarry chetan2u

I don't think this sentence is correct!

"Spreading panic.....regions" is a result of "bovine spongiform encephalopathy" . Why do we need "and" to separate the two parts?

If option A is the right answer then the sentence means
- Many countries faced trade bans because of
a) The cases in bovine spongiform encephalopathy
b) Spreading panic...regions

This doesn't make sense to me.

Experts please correct me if I am wrong. Thanks

Should be 'A'

The cases and spreading panic are parallel.. Since both are nouns in this case
