OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



D. The small underlined portion of this sentence contains three errors. The first concerns the pronoun they, which is a plural pronoun that renames the singular noun spouse. Eliminate Choices (A), (B), and (E). And of course too in Choice (A) means also and thus is wrong. The other error snuck in here is the good ol’ dangling preposition. Standard writing English frowns upon ending a sentence with a preposition like to. Of the remaining two answers, Choice (D) corrects the preposition error.

(A) but they very well might be trying too --> "spouse" is singular
(B) but they very well might be trying to --> same as A
(C) but he or she very well might be trying to --> "trying to" what?? D is better
(D) but he or she very well might be doing so --> correct
(E) but they very well might be doing so--> same as A
