The difference is in the modifiers. "For the protection of" is a noun modifier, so it would (incorrectly) apply to development. "In order to protect" is an adverbial modifier, so it can refer back to the action: "follow rules."

This kind of switch between noun and adverbial modifiers is fairly common. For instance, in the problem linked below, notice how "of the 1930's"--a noun modifier--incorrectly applies to "daytime hours," creating an absurd meaning. Other answer choices fix this by using "in the 1930's"--an adverbial modifier--to refer back to the verb, "moved."

B was the official answer. I rechecked! Sorry.

and here is the explanation

A. No. Idiom ("require...to...in order to").

B. Yes. Idiom ("require...to...in order to").

C. No. Idiom ("require...to...in order to").

D. No. Meaning. The plan is to limit development in order to protect the elephant. Here it seems as if the development we're limiting is "development for the protection of the elephant."

E. No. Idiom ("require...to...in order to").

Hope this helps! :)

Isn't there a difference between the phrases "follow rules strictly" and "follow strict rules" used in option B and D respectively? What is the intended meaning of the original sentence? I marked D because B doesn't follow the phrase as given in original sentence.

Hi,
Isn't there a change in the meaning in B? "follow strict rules " to " follow rules strictly"

It's an easy one but I still got it wrong because of "strictly"

adverbs DO NOT modify noun or pronoun, BUT "limiting", gerund, is acting as a verb here.

The confusion around this question is because of use of strictly between rules and limiting .
But strictly is an adverb so it must modify anything other than nouns here it is modifying limiting so it is correct .
I think a comma before strictly limiting would have been more appropriate

Experts any thought on this ?

Hi gmat experts, just for my understanding, do we use "follow" instead of "to follow" if the sentence is as such (note the comma before "who" and after "habitats":

B and D both seem correct. How do we eliminate one of these?
