28. A representative of the Women’s Bureau of the United States Department of Labor contends that employers who offer benefits which permit that employees can balance home and work responsibilities better, realizing gains in attendance, recruiting, and retention.
(A) which permit that employees can balance home and work responsibilities better, realizing
(B) which permit employees balancing home and work responsibilities better will realize
(C) that permit employees to balance the responsibilities of home and work better will realize
(D) that permit employees a better balance between the responsibilities of home and work, thus realizing
(E) such that employees are permitted a balance between home and work responsibilities, and they will realize


Can some one please explain when to use 'that' and when to use 'which'? I know 'that' is essential modifier and 'which' is non-essential ... but here I am not able to apply that logic.

(A) which permit that employees can balance home and work responsibilities better, realizing
(B) which permit employees balancing home and work responsibilities better will realize

(C) that permit employees to balance the responsibilities of home and work better will realize
(D) that permit employees a better balance between the responsibilities of home and work, thus realizing
(E) such that employees are permitted a balance between home and work responsibilities, and they will realize

Pick C.
Here the part "permit employees to balance the responsibilities of home and work better" is a restrictive clause. So you need to use that. Since its the benefits that permitted the employees to do X which helped in Y.

Which is used in non-restrictive clauses, tells something incidental but does not define the subject of the sentence.

(A) which permit that employees can balance home and work responsibilities better, realizing
// which is non essential modifier. It is used to add information and is preceded by comma.

(B) which permit employees balancing home and work responsibilities better will realize

(C) that permit employees to balance the responsibilities of home and work better will realize
IMO: C
Brevity preferred on GMAT.

(D) that permit employees a better balance between the responsibilities of home and work, thus realizing
// realizing is awkward. That is an essential modifier.

(E) such that employees are permitted a balance between home and work responsibilities, and they will realize
Unidiomatic..
such as is the right idiom
