(C) where 49 percent of the household incomes are
(D) which has 49 percent of the household incomes
(E) in which 49 percent of them have household incomes

My ans is D

usage of where is to indicate some place and not a group.
Which is a right usage of a group ( like Community )
In E, them is a plural and does not refer to girls ..which is not the intension here.
However choice D correctly indiacates the community ( a group ) having household incomes below poverty level.

(A) where the household incomes of 49 percent of them are. Eliminate this, it is wordy and the use of 49% of them is ambigous

(B) where they have 49 percent of the household incomes. eliminate this one too because they is also ambiguous

(C) where 49 percent of the household incomes are . Best choices

which has 49 percent of the household incomes . this is wrong because its sounds like the community has 49% of the income below the poverty line. Secondly ETS always use which as an intro to a modying clause after a coma


(E) in which 49 percent of them have household incomes . them here is wrong [/color[/b]]

I would pick "C" on this.
them of choice "A", they of choice "B" and them of choice "E" do not have antecedent.
Choice "D" says, community has 49percent of the house hold incomes, which is wrong.

:btw whats the OA ?

C should be it.
:btw "where" does not only indicate location.
From Webster online dictionary: "where" can mean a "case, situation, or respect in which"
Ex: outstanding where endurance is called for--> he is outstanding with respect to endurance
Ex: has reached the size where traffic is a problem
In the above two examples, there is no location involved. Yet, the two uses of "where" refer to what follows it.

The answer is C. The runner-up would be D, but not the winner.

To see why D is not the best answer, simply replace "a community" with the name of a place such as a country. As an example, replace it with "the US" and notice how where becomes a natural choice and which has sounds odd.
