(B) but primarily so as to prepare students, by discussing and by thinking ahead, for responsible decision-making that respects terminal patients’ dignity

(C) but primarily for the purpose of preparing them, with discussion and forethought, to make responsible decisions that respect terminal patients’ dignity

Parallelism and Pronoun reference.

Them in CDE have illogical reference.
between A and B

Partly to....but primarily to.. only A makes sense

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

A.

In (A),“but”connects two similar phrases:“To alert . . . ” and “to prepare.” In(B), “so as to prepare,” (C), “for the purpose of preparing,” and (D),“for prepar- ing” break this parallel construction. (E) has “to pre- pare,” but the pronoun “them” is ambiguous, and “so as to” is too wordy.
