(A) When deer damage plants, it (it logically refers back to deer, which is incorrect as we are talking about the damage which needs to be prevented
(B) The damage to plants caused by deer - Correct
(C) The fact that deer cause damage to plants - The meaning of the sentence changes to the fact ---- can be prevented.
(D) When deer cause plant damage, it - Again it is incorrect and so is when.
(E) Deer damage plants, which- Which is referring to plants, incorrect


IMO, answer should be B for the above highlighted errors in the other options.

+1 for B.

(A) When deer damage plants, it --> Pronoun error

(B) The damage to plants caused by deer --> Correct, rectifies pronoun and modifier error, and conveys intended meaning

(C) The fact that deer cause damage to plants --> Changes meaning

(D) When deer cause plant damage, it --> Pronoun error

(E) Deer damage plants, which --> Run on and modifier error

Hence, B.

C:the fact can be prevented? wrong meaning.
D:Same error as in A.

(E) Deer damage plants, which


MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The sentence is not correct as written. The damage has occurred but the second part of the sentence talks of preventing the damage. Eliminate A. What can be prevented? Is it the damage or the fact that deer cause damage. It is the damage that can be prevented. Eliminate C. D has the same problem as A. The word ‘which’ is misplaced in E. As it is written ‘which’ refers incorrectly to the plants. B is the correct answer.
