Hi All, This question confuses me. The OA is C but doesn't it contain a double negative??

Q:With no natural predators and expanses of green suburban neighborhoods that allow no hunting, wildlife officials estimate the New Jersey deer population to have grown to exceed 175,000

A. With no natural predators and expanses of green suburban neighborhoods that allow no hunting, wildlife officials estimate the New Jersey deer population to have
B. With no natural predators and with expanses of green suburban neighborhoods that do not allow hunting, wildlife officials' estimate of the deer population in New Jersey has
C. With no natural predators and with expanses of green suburban neighborhoods where there is no hunting, the deer population in New Jersey, wildlife officials estimate, has
D. Without natural predators and no hunting allowed in expanse of green suburban neighborhoods, New Jersey has a deer population that wildlife officials estimate to have
E. Without natural predators and with expanses of green neighborhoods where there is no hunting, wildlife officials in New Jersey estimate a deer population that has

C and D are close but you can ignore D as it is mentioned as New jersy has a population which looks awkward......

Hope it helps

+1 Kudos if it helped

This is a straight modifier problem. In one shot, you can find out what does not hve natural predators. Is it A) wild life officials B) wildlife officials' estimate C) the deer population D) New Jersey or E) the wildlife officials. It is clear only the deer population can have no natural predators. Therefore, C is the instant choice.

Answer (C) is not a case of the double negative. Each ‘no’ occurs in different dependent clauses. The first ‘no’ relates to the absence of natural predators and the second ‘no’ relates to the absence of hunting.

As for the explanation, daagh does a very succinct job of explaining the modifier problem.
