(A) but primarily to prepare students, through discussion and forethought, to make responsible decisions that respect terminal patients’ dignity

(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

(D) but primarily for preparing them, through discussion and forethought, for deciding responsibly so that they respect terminal patients’ dignity

(E) but primarily to prepare them, by discussing and thinking ahead, to responsibly decide so as to respect the dignity of terminal patients

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.
