This is a really hard one.
C and D both seem good but only D conveys the meaning of the original statement. C had a different meaning.

(A) The prisoner was expedited from California to Florida.
Expedited is the wrong word [make (an action or process) happen sooner or be accomplished more quickly]

(B) From California to Florida, the prisoner was expedited.
As above

(C) The prisoner from California was extradited to Florida.
This makes sense. The prisoner was extradited to Florida with from California as a modifier. It would be nice to know where she was extradited from though. Don't think there's anything grammatically wrong with this sentence.

(D) The prisoner was extradited from California to Florida.
Again this makes sense - sent from Cali to Flo. It also makes more sense than C, but isn't grammatically any better. Poor way to differentiate, but D is better than C

(E) From California, the prisoner was expedited to Florida.
Active voice is preferred over passive voice. D

Guys! is it really a GMAT type question. It seems the word meaning is the key to solve. Does GMAT test Vocabulary in SC questions.
