Is it 'E'

in other options they is ambigous - journalists and power stations

D.

we need 'think' to add logical sense to the sentence. 'think that' is correct in this case.

Further, I think that 'would' and 'could' are both expressing the same hypothetical situation.

Agree with GK_GMAT's logic... it should be D

D is confusing the "they"

E though long seems clearer. OA?

(A) that they will, or could,
(B) that they would, or could,
(C) they will be or could
(D) think that they will be or could
(E) think the power stations would or could

OA is definitely E.
A) would mean : journalists surveyed nuclear power stations as...but that they...It is unparalleled (as unsafe and that they...). Moreover to what do "they" refer? Furthermore, will and could are unparalleled.
B) would and could are coherent but the mistakes are the same as those indicated in A)
C) identical problems
D) Ok if it not were for :will - could . Moreover....the unclear reference they...
E) it sounds correct

My Answer is E. Whats OQ? They is confusing in all - ---whether referring to power stations or journalists?

Can we have the source . Some of these questions are so dubious, i wonder how close are they to real GMAT questions.

More over I have seen this question so many times, every time we have 2 groups - one for 'D' and the other for 'E'.

If you can post OE that will be great..

Otherwise, we need to strongly establish how 'they' has clear antecedent.. Not that I believe 'E' is error free, but my point is on the quality of such questions..

This question is from 1000SC that do not have OE . I chose E when I did this question but do think that GK_Gmat makes a good point here.
