A) Primary schooling is almost universal, today, three out of four children are enrolled in pre- and secondary school.
This sentence has two independent clauses without conjunction so it is fragment.

B) Three out of four children are enrolled in both pre- and secondary school and it is almost universal today.
"it" is ambiguous. It refers to "pre-school" or "secondary school"?

C) Today, primary schooling is almost universal, and three out of four children are enrolled in both pre- and secondary school.
Correct. This sentence is clear and precise.

D) Today, primary school is almost universal, and three out of four children enrolled are in it.
This choice change the original meaning

E) Primary schooling is universal today, almost three out of four children are enrolled in pre- and secondary school.
This choice makes the sentence fragment

Please clarify the OA. As current answer meant 3 out of 4 children are enrolled in both pre and secondary school. Per me, children can be in either one of them, therefore chose D.

Primary schooling is almost universal, today, three out of four children are enrolled in pre- and secondary school.

A) Primary schooling is almost universal, today, three out of four children are enrolled in pre- and secondary school. - 2 Independent clauses are connected without any connector, leading to Run-on. Hence Incorrect.
B) Three out of four children are enrolled in both pre- and secondary school and it is almost universal today. - What is the Antecedent of IT...? Antecedent of IT is "Primary Schooling", but this noun is nowhere present in the sentence. Hence Incorrect.
C) Today, primary schooling is almost universal, and three out of four children are enrolled in both pre- and secondary school. - This option changes the original intent a little bit, but Best option out of the rest.
D) Today, primary school is almost universal, and three out of four children enrolled are in it. - Alters the original intent altogether. Author is talking about PRIMARY SCHOOLING and not PRIMARY SCHOOL. Hence Incorrect.
E) Primary schooling is universal today, almost three out of four children are enrolled in pre- and secondary school. - 2 Independent clauses are connected without any connector, leading to Run-on. Hence Incorrect.
