I would go for C.

Two independent clauses CANNOT BE CONNECTED WITH a Comma. A&D out.
E violates too...to structure. E out.
B violates too......to +VERB structure. Hazard is not a verb.
C is my answer.

Correct idiom.... hazard a guess. All of the other choices incorrectly express the idiom. In addition, the idiom completes an independent clause

we need more data to draw a real conclusion is also an independent clause; they cannot be separated with a comma

A. to guess hazardously, we need - comma splice: two independent clauses are connected only with a comma: we need FANBOYS or ";"
B. to hazard a guess; we need - the error from (A) is fixed, but another error is introduced: change in meaning: "to guess hazardously" is not the same as "to hazard a guess"
C. to be hazardous with a guess; we need - same as (B); plus it is always better to use active verb rather than change a form to "to be hazardous" (to be +adjective instead of an active verb - not good)
D. to hazard guessing, we need - mix of errors from (A) and (B): comma splice; change in meaning
E. for guessing hazardously; we need - the leftover, so correct :)

' cannot be used to join to independent clause.

Hence option A, B and D are out.
In option C and E

C changes meaning by adding to be hazardous to guess.

IMO E

Official Explanation:



Correct Answer: B

The correct idiom is hazard a guess. All of the other choices incorrectly express the idiom. In addition, the idiom completes an independent clause, and we need more data to draw a real conclusion is also an independent clause; they cannot be separated with a comma, so choices a and d are also incorrect.
