    Plz help! I don't understand this sentence clearly..

    Hi, guys! The answer is (A) but (D) cannot be an answer?
    If not, why it can't be? Plz help. I'd like to hear experts' opinions. ^^
    Oh, one more... 80 and 100 mean the score or the number of people?
    Thank you.

    A result of 80 out of 100 in the aptitude test
    is just ------- the average score achieved by
    our graduate recruits.

    (A) below
    (B) among
    (C) toward
    (D) on

    On ??
    If you want to say:
    "A result of 80 out of 100 in the aptitude test
    is just the average score achieved by
    our graduate recruits.", you don't need "on".

    So (D) is not the correct answer.

    "A result of 80 out of 100" is the score, not the number of people. If it meant to be the number of people it wouldn't begin with "a result".
