KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



D

This sentence attempts to describe the crimes committed by the deported British convicts. The original (A) is awkwardly wordy and the pronoun they has more than one possible antecedent. In (B), the verbs linked by and aren't parallel; "were convicted" doesn't match "ranging." (C) is awkward and unidiomatic. (E) is wordy, and also, the second part of the sentence doesn't relate clearly to the first part. That raises the question, 'The range of what?" (D) is the best choice. Note that it's also the shortest (The most concise answer choice is often (but not always) the correct answer on the GMAT.)
