E looks more concise and better contender to be the potential answer .

But I 've a doubt

the number of guests - who express /es -- Because 'The number of' is always singular opposed to ' A number of ' which is always plural .

Hi soumya170293, whether it should be express or expresses, depends on what who is modifying: if who is modifying guests, then the correct verb is express; if who is modifying the number, then the correct verb is expresses.

From the intended meaning of the sentence, it is quite clear that the ultimate goal of is to reduce the number of guests who express overall dissatisfaction with the hotels’ service.

So, reduce which guests?

Answer: Those who express overall dissatisfaction with the hotels’ service.

Hence, who is intended to modify guests. Hence, the correct verb is express.

The tourism commission has conducted surveys of hotels in the most popular resorts, with the ultimate goal of reducing the guests who end up expressing overall dissatisfaction with the service in the hotels.

(A) with the ultimate goal of reducing the guests who end up expressing overall dissatisfaction with the service in the hotels

(B) with the goal to ultimately reduce the number of guests who end up expressing overall dissatisfaction with the hotels’ service

(C) ultimately with the goal to reduce expressions of overall dissatisfaction by the guests with the hotel service

(D) in an ultimate attempt to reduce the number of guests that ends up expressing overall dissatisfaction with the hotels’ service

(E) with the ultimate goal of reducing the number of guests who express overall dissatisfaction with the hotels’ service


The goal is to reduce the number of guests. Not the guests themselves. A is incorrect.

'ultimately reduce the number of guests' distorts the original meaning which tries to say that the goal is ultimate. Eliminate B.

Goal is not to reduce expressions. 'with the hotel service' should be placed next to overall dissatisfaction. 'ultimately with goal' is not same as 'ultimate goal' Eliminate C.

that refers to guests so should have plural verb end and not 'ends'. Even if you think that refers to number then it conveys illogical meaning since the number cannot express dissatisfaction. 'ultimate attempt' means final attempt. We want to say the goal is ultimate. Eliminate D.

E does not make the above mistakes. who correctly refers to guests and correct plural verb 'express' is used. Correct answer.
