Hello experts,
GMATNinja aragonn AjiteshArun Skywalker18

I have read the above explaination but I am still not clear and confused between option D and E ?
How do we realize that noun + noun modifier is required and with approximately is wrong ?
Moreover what's wrong with to an estimate of 20000 ... ?

Here's (D) again:

Quote:
(D) wolves have declined to an estimate of 200,000 in 57 countries, with approximately

First, it's strange to claim that the population of wolves animals has declined to an estimate rather than an estimated number. Also, typically when we have a construction that uses a clause + "with", "with _______" will modify the previous verb. For example, "I ran for several miles with great intensity." In this case "with great intensity" describes how I "ran."

In (D) the verb preceding "with" is "declined." It makes no sense for wolves to decline "with approximately 11,000 of them." One could run with 11,000 wolves. (Not recommended.) One could dine with 11,000 wolves. (Ditto.) But declining with 11,000 wolves? That's clearly wrong.

I hope that helps!

in choice D, "with+noun" works ad an adverb. but this modification between the adverb and main clause is not logic. this is the main reason for which choice D is wrong

1st split wolf/wolves = because them A,B,C - out
2nd split meaning - D out declined to an estimate - sounds bad

The answer is E
