## issues with listing items

The political action group focuses on issues that span from public transportation, the death penalty, and constitutional and tax reform.

(1)public transportation, the death penalty, and constitutional and tax reform
(2)public transportation, the death penalty, and constitutional reform to tax reform
(3)public transportation, the death penalty, to constitutional and tax reform
(4)public transportation to the death penalty, from constitutional to tax reform
(5)public transportation and the death penalty to constitutional and tax reform

idiom should be "from x to y" right? But let's consider a list of four items - a, b, c, and d.
Which is it?
"from a, b, c, to d" or
"from a, b, to a and d" or
"from a and b to c and d"

the part I mark red is obviously wrong, since it cannot from a, b, to a and d.

In the case of four items, we should use "from a, b, c, to d".
while the case in the question, "constitutional and tax reform" should be taken as one part

Yes, the answer should be E

IMO: E
IDIOM tested: span from x to y.

(1)public transportation, the death penalty, and constitutional and tax reform -->INCORRECT, due to absence of 'to'
(2)public transportation, the death penalty, and constitutional reform to tax reform -->INCORRECT, wrong usage, how can i thing span from 3 things to 1.
(3)public transportation, the death penalty, to constitutional and tax reform -->INCORRECT, to end a list and should be used; here public trn, the death penalty 'and' is missing .
(4)public transportation to the death penalty, from constitutional to tax reform -->INCORRECT, missing 'and' again before from to show 2 things.
(5)public transportation and the death penalty to constitutional and tax reform -->CORRECT,correct span from X&Y(should be taken as single noun clause) to A&B( another noun clause)

Sorry, there was a typo; It should be "from a, b, c, to d" Do you think this is a correct list pattern?"

Contenders B and E. IMO B.

(1)public transportation, the death penalty, and constitutional and tax reform - incorrect. 'to' is missing.
(2)public transportation, the death penalty, and constitutional reform to tax reform - seems correct. reforms to reforms.
(3)public transportation, the death penalty, to constitutional and tax reform - incorrect. 'and' is missing
(4)public transportation to the death penalty, from constitutional to tax reform - incorrect. 'and' is missing
(5)public transportation and the death penalty to constitutional and tax reform - the pattern of the things spanned doesn't seem apt.

what is wrong with C?

In C the structure look like this - from X, Y, to Z (Z is constitutional and tax form)

Yes , even i think that the answer is B bcz, .

For example " A sentence can cover almost everything from verb, prepositions, idioms to mood. "
