'The guests that ends up' is an easy SV error to spot and eliminate. D is gone. The idea is not to reduce either guests or their expressions. The idea is to reduce the number of complainants. Therefore, A and C are gone. Between B and E; B has a problem of split infinitive in 'to ultimately reduce', and a problem of superfluity or redundancy in saying ' who end up expressing dissatisfaction. 'Who express' is more direct and dynamic.

Therefore, E remains.


Hi Daagh,
Very nice explanation. I was not able to didtinguish whether the idea was to reduce expression or guest. But u rightly pointed out the issue. Found the meaning of the question a bit hard to comprehend

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 - Illogical - The goal must be “reducing the number of guests” ; express is better than end up expressing
B) with the goal to ultimately reduce the number of guests who end up expressing overall dissatisfaction with the hotels’ service - “goal to ultimately reduce” means that the objective is to eventually reduce the number of guests. The first meaning "ultimate goal of reducing" seems more logical ; express is better than end up expressing
C) ultimately with the goal to reduce expressions of overall dissatisfaction by the guests with the hotel service - it is not clear what ultimately modifies
D) in an ultimate attempt to reduce the number of guests that ends up expressing overall dissatisfaction with the hotels’ service - singular verb “ends” does not agree with the plural subject “guests” ; express is better than end up expressing
E) with the ultimate goal of reducing the number of guests who express overall dissatisfaction with the hotels’ service - Correct

Answer E
