(A) anyone disposing of or servicing
(B) those who dispose or service
(C) anyone disposing of or who services >> 'disposing of' and 'services' not parallel.
(D) the disposal or repair of >> Changes the intended meaning. disposal or repair can't capture CFC.
(E) someone who disposes or repairs

OA - A. Please explain all the options and the reasons for eliminations. Thanks
The main reason that applies to all the options is that 'Dispose' and 'Dispose of' differ in meaning. Here the required term is 'dispose of'.

Refer the following link for difference in meaning between 'dispose' and 'dispose of' : http://www.beedictionary.com/common-errors/dispose_vs_dispose_of

Hi Vinayak,

I got a bit confused.
The information on the link seems to be contradicting.

Could you help me overcome this confusion -

1. "Dispose of" is used when one wants to get rid of something
2. "Dispose of" is also used when referring to a deal

I could not find when is "Dispose" (Without of) is used?

Well, even I am not that familiar with the word 'dispose'; I've always used it with 'of'.

The oxford dictionary says that 'dispose' means arrange something in a particular order, or to make somebody behave in a particular way

Eg: a drug that disposes the patient towards sleep

(E) someone who disposes or repairs - disposes of
