A) approach toward the opposite directions

E) approach from opposite directions

The farmer is planning to reinforce the windows on the eastern side of his barn, even though most wind storms develop to the west and approach toward the opposite direction (of his barn).

The farmer is planning to reinforce the windows on the eastern side of his barn, even though most wind storms develop to the west and approach (his barn) from the opposite direction.

Which of the two above are logically correct and make sense to the ear?

i analyze the question in a different way. i dont know whether my analysis is right or wrong. most storms develop to west, so technically there is one opposite direction of west not several directions. on this ground A, C and E are out. i dont know whether APPROACH TOWARD is right or wrong but in this sentence it distorts the intended meaning. i think B is not parallel wind storms approach from x develop to y....please correct me if i am wrong

The farmer is planning to reinforce the windows on the eastern side of his barn, even though most wind storms develop to the west and approach toward the opposite directions. This is said in context of the window on the Barn. He is placing the barn on eastside while the storms develop on west side and approache from opposite of where the window is placed.

A) approach toward the opposite directions
B) approach toward the opposite direction
C) often approach from opposite directions
D) approach from the opposite direction
E) approach from opposite directions

This is the meaning issue. Use split 2/3

(1) toward/from => A,B/C,D,E => From is correct, so A and B are out.

(2) direction/directions => B,C/A,C,E => direction (singular form) is correct. => A,C,E are out. B and C remain

From (1) and (2), we get the C is the finalist.

IMO D too, since if the storm goes toward the opposite direction, "even though" does not make sense.
