Many car dealers provide leasing services that allow an individual uninterested in purchasing a car to be able to use one when needed and to put an initial payment toward a purchase should the consumer later decide to buy the car once the contract has expired.

A. services that allow an individual uninterested in purchasing a car to be able to use one when needed and to put ------to be able to use is superfluous and wordy ------ wrong

B. services that allow an individual uninterested in purchasing a car to use one when needed and to put --- good choice. The correct one.

C. services; that allows an individual uninterested in purchasing a car to use one when needed, to put ---1. ‘that’ as a stand-alone demonstrative pronoun is grammatically wrong 2. To use and to put should be conjugated by a conjunction ’and’. --- wrong

D. services, which allows an individual uninterested in purchasing a car to use one when needed, putting --- 'services, which allows' is SV number error. --wrong

E. services, which allow an individual uninterested in purchasing a car to be able to use one when needed, putting -- to be able is wrong 2. Putting modifies the subject of the previous clause namely services, implying that the services are putting up the initial payment and not the individual. --- wrong

OFFICIAL EXPLANATION

When we read through this sentence, we should immediately be wary of the construction "to be able to"; there is almost always a better way to phrase that. After we've taken a closer look, we can see that it's redundant with "allow."

Since (A) and (E) have this redundancy, we can eliminate them both.

Choice (B) works: "that" introduces a needed clarification about "leasing services." Choice (C) uses a semicolon, which leaves us confused about what "that" is referring to (car dealers? leasing services?) now that it's the subject of a connected,
but distinct thought.
Using "which" to introduce the additional, non-vital information about leasing services in (E) might have worked, but it doesn't matter because "putting" attaches that action to "leasing services," and that doesn't make sense at all. Leasing services cannot put down a payment.

The correct answer is Choice (B).
