I reproduce what the Manhattan link has in its print. You may see that the answer choices are not the same, as has been claimed. Answer choice C in Manhattan is the same as answer choice E in gmatclub

A
Quote:
n economic recession can result from a lowering of employment rates triggered by a drop in investment, which causes people to cut consumer spending and starts a cycle of layoffs leading back to even lower employment rates.

a. a lowering of employment rates triggered by a drop in investment, which causes people to cut consumer spending and start a cycle of layoffs leading back to even lower employment rates.

b a lowering of employment rates triggered by dropping investment, which cause people to cut consumer spending and starts a cycle of layoffs leading back to even lower employment rates.

c. falling employment rates triggered by a drop in investment, causing cutbacks in consumer spending and starting a cycle of layoffs that lead to even lower employment rates.

d. falling employment rates that are triggered by a drop in investment, causing people to cut consumer spending and starting a cycle of layoffs that lead back to even lower employment rates.

e. falling employment rates that are triggered by a drop in investment, that cause cutbacks in consumer spending and the start of a cycle of layoffs leading to even lower employment rates.

Let's compare the choices

Manhattan C
c. falling employment rates triggered by a drop in investment, causing cutbacks in consumer spending and starting a cycle of layoffs that lead to even lower employment rates

gmatclub E

falling employment rates that are triggered by a drop in investment, causing cutbacks in consumer spending and starting a cycle of layoffs leading to even lower employment rates


gmatclub C

falling employment rates triggered by a drop in investment, which cause cutbacks in consumer spending, starting a cycle of layoffs that lead to even lower employment rates.


You may appreciate that the choices are significantly different from each other of both forums ; The gmatclub e is the verbatim ditto of Manhattan C. The correct answer in Manhattan is C. and therefore the same version that is the gmatclub should be right answer , because there is no change in the stimulus.

2. Yes, in certain situations the relative pronoun ‘which’ may refer to a distant noun other than what it touches; Those situations must be thoroughly understood, before resorting to them at will. I might accentuate that this thread is not the one that has those conditions and therefore unfit to apply those exemptions.

Hope I am clear

+1C

Since the contention is basically between C and E, I would like to take only these two options.

The events take place in the following manner

drop in investment ------ falling employment rates ------ cutbacks in consumer spending ------- cycle of layoffs ------ lower employment rates

1 2 3 4 5

The statement wants to convey the cyclical nature of the process. Therefore each single act should lead to the another single act i.e. 1 lead to 2 lead 3 lead to 4 lead to 5

Option C and E differs in this respect
In option C, “starting” modify cutbacks whereas in option E “starting” acts as a verb for “that”. I do not find this option well structured

:-D
