Not clear on IMO

The central issue before the court was how far the regulatory agencies should go in requiring better working conditions in factories.

This question tests more on the diction/idiom part of English. "how far X ... in <gerund action>" is the correct format. Hence A is the correct answer.

Abhi077, GMATNinja, GMATNinjaTwo, generis, hazelnut

Please explain the error in E. It seems A has better diction. I fail to understand the error in E.

A. in requiring better working conditions in factories

B. as far as requiring better working conditions in factories

C. in their requirement that factories should have better working conditions

D. as far as requiring that factories should have better working conditions

E. to require factories to have better working conditions

Helllo!
Eliminate Options B and D as there is no need of a comparison here.

Option E has not placed the words correctly
Option C is not correct. The use of have is not required.

Hence, Option A is perfect in terms of the usage of the words and its implied meaning.

Official Answer-: Option A
Kindly educate me if anything seems incorrect above.

Thank you!

Raunak Damle :please:

Please explain @e-gmat

anks2190 Very challenging split, between A and E. It's true that there are a number of other questions that prefer the "to verb" vs. "preposition verb-ing" structure, so E is tempting, but this is one of several exceptions.

Here are 4 questions with similar splits:

I've attached the official explanation below:

is this from official?

"to do" used after a clause shows the would be action normally. of course, to do in this way can show a fact as in " i go go vietnam just to know that everything is good".

here, to require show a future action. this is not good. the requiring action happen already, not a future action. this meaning is better.

the agencies do requiring and then decide how far they should go in this action. agency dose not go for purpose of requiring which have not happened.
so, choice b is good, choice e is wrong

GMATNinja, this question requires your attention :-P :)
I am getting hard time to understand the difference between A and E.
What I get the meaning is that the agencies require factories to have better working conditions. What exactly E is doing here?

We have to read the sentence by removing all the unnecessary fluff.
The issue was how far the agencies should go in requiring better working conditions in factories.

A. in requiring better working conditions in factories
Seems okay. NO PROBLEM. Keep it.

B. as far as requiring better working conditions in factories
how far ---should go as far as. Does not makes sense at all.

C. in their requirement that factories should have better working conditions
Change in the meaning. There is no requirement of agencies.

D. as far as requiring that factories should have better working conditions
Same problem as B.

E. to require factories to have better working conditions
Agencies do not require factories in this sentence. Wrong

daagh sir. Can you please tell whether my approach is correct?

thangvietnam Yes, this question is from the new product sold at mba.com, "GMAT Official Practice Questions 2". Many of these questions appear to be quite old -- for example, some of the RC passages were originally posted on the forum in 2004.
