In some other posts, I have read that correct idiom for prevent is - TO PREVENT X FROM Y.With this logic, I eliminated B,C,E. D contains ambiguity with "they", so I selected A.
Please let me know if there is anything wrong in my POE.


Your reasoning is correct. But be cautious that it is possible to use "prevent" without "from".

To prevent an accident, I had to steer my vehicle towards right.... correct ("from" is not used with concrete nouns)

However for actions (gerunds) "prevent from" is used. To prevent the busiensses from moving ...... correct

Hello from the GMAT Club VerbalBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

Want to see all other topics I dig out? Follow me (click follow button on profile). You will receive a summary of all topics I bump in your profile area as well as via email.
