MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This sentence is testing your ability to spot improper or ambiguous usage of pronouns. To whom does the ‘they’ in ‘because they usually’ refer? This is not clear. Choices A, B and C are therefore incorrect. In fact, choice B implies that the disciplinary decisions cause less trouble and are more repentant. Choice D has an incorrect comparison: it compares decisions to boys, not girls to boys. Choice E is the correct answer.
