KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



First of all, the correct idiom is exposing... to. Eliminate (A), (B), and (С). (E) deeply distorts the original meaning of the sentence. It illogically suggests that the campers fail to lock their cars by exposing the cars and campers to danger, that the exposure creates the unlocked cars. If that makes no sense to you, that's okay because it makes no sense. Eliminate (E). (D) uses the correct idiom and creates a clear parallel structure between who fail and who expose. (D) it is.

+1 for D.

(A) night, exposing their cars and other campers with

(B) night and expose their cars and other campers toward

(C) night, and expose their cars and others campers with

(D) night and who expose their cars and other campers to --> Correct idiom and maintains parallelism

(E) night, by exposing their cars and other campers to --> Changes meaning and is not parallel

Hence, D.

I think the answer should be D.

One doubt - would E have been correct if 'by' was not there.

Arrived at the Correct Answer however would like to add one more point

" Expose to " is idiomatically correct

We have the following forms -

1. expose someone or something to someone or something
2. expose something (or oneself) to someone or something

Please correct me if I am wrong !! :grin:
