Requesting experts reply on this.

Can anybody please distinguish between the split to borrow money vs for borrowing money.

I was stuck between choice C and E. Finally went with E.

The best way to get an SC correct is to realize that there will always be more than one split between any two answer choices. So, if you can't decide on one split, look for other split.
Work on the other split between C and E - "limitations intended to.." vs "limitations with the intent...".
"with X" generally signify possession, so how can "limitation" posses "intent of protecting". And you are done...

Cheers !!

Limitations intended to protect ....................is a noun+noun modifier.

Limitations for borrowing money is little awkward.
I think we limit to do something and not limit for doing something.

RMD007 "For" vs. "to" in this sentence is just a matter of idiom. You can have "authority to do X," but not "authority for doing X."

can someone please explain to me why C is correct? The reason why I eliminated C is because the part of the sentence after the comma is not a complete sentence. Is my reasoning appropriate?

Hi amegupte0410, the part of the sentence after the comma is called an absolute phrase: Noun (limitations) + Noun modifier (intended to protect taxpayers and the credit of the state government).

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses Absolute Phrases, their application and examples in significant detail. If you or someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section.
