I am going to have to go with E

All the other choices seem to emphasize lions playing without the aid of photolens.

if it is fully underlined then most of the time E is the OA.

The OA here is E.

I see that it can be confusing from the other choices, which make it seem like the lions are playing in trees with cameras.

without the aid of telephoto lenses. this modifier should modify visitors. in A,B,C, and D it is modifying Tree.

(D) The visitor to the Lake Manyara Park in Tanzania has the unequalled opportunity to photograph lions playing in trees without the aid of telephoto lenses. same modifier problem

@Sharadhha daagh GMATNinja

would be thankful if you could help me clear my doubt

i chose option c

"The Lake Manyara Park in Tanzania gives the visitor the unequalled opportunity to photograph lions playing in trees without telephoto lenses"

because 1) it retains the original meaning according to which the subject is the lake and not a person
2) e-gmat always asks one to go by meaning , so it doesn't make sense for lions to be playing without telephoto
lenses ,and thus "without telephoto lenses" must modify "to photograph"

option e changes the intended meaning .

could you please help me with this

(E) Even without the aid of telephoto lenses, the visitor to Tanzania’s Lake Manyara Park has an unequalled opportunity to photograph lions playing in trees.


So I read the first sentence (I mean option A) and it says "lions playing in trees without the aid of telephoto lenses" and feel hey that is not right.
Option B,C, and D do the same mistake. :shocked
So I mark E and that is the right answer.

Hence E
