E.

The idiom is ranging from X to Y.
X and Y should be parallel. In E noun clauses are in parallel.

Sky Airlines recently announced aggressive cost-cutting measures ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks and reductions in the size of its fleet.

A. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks and reductions
Correct Idiom is Ranging from X to Y. X & Y should be both grammatically and logically parallel. Hence Incorrect.

B. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks and to reductions
Correct Idiom is Ranging from X to Y. X & Y should be both grammatically and logically parallel. Hence Incorrect.

C. such as improvement of airport check-in procedures, encouragement of passengers to use self-service kiosks and reducing
This option changes the original intent. Encouragement is not a different activity. Moreover, action noun REDUCTION is required at the end. Hence Incorrect.

D. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks to reducing
Correct Idiom is Ranging from X to Y. X & Y should be both grammatically and logically parallel. In this option X & Y are not parallel. Hence Incorrect.

E. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks to reductions
CORRECT

E is the correct answer

it took me only 51 sec
Shortcut: idiom is "ranging from X to Y" reading vertically at the end of the sentences only option D&E got "to"
Eliminate A,B&C
"reducing" in D is not parallel with "ranging from new airport..." the word after to should be noun... D is eliminated

Make sure to re-read the whole sentence with option E to make sure it fits

B. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks and to reductions

C. such as improvement of airport check-in procedures, encouragement of passengers to use self-service kiosks and reducing

D. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks to reducing

E. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks to reductions


KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



E.

The sentence contains two parallel elements-procedures and reductions-that are incorrectly joined by the construction from...and. The construction should be from...to. Eliminate (A) and (B). (C) changes the parallel structure format with such as, but reducing is not parallel with improvement and encouragement. Moreover, reducing can't be followed by the preposition in, from the original sentence. Eliminate (C). (D) correctly uses from...to but includes the non-parallel procedures and reducing. That leaves (E), which is correct.
