Hi folks,

Here comes a new SC problem of this week, just for you. Do post your detailed analysis and we will give Kudos to you if you get correct. :)

A new study suggests that different species of mice have different burrow design: a lab-raised mouse too can build species-specific burrow due to its genes, carrying various DNA combinations of burrow creation in genome.

A. a lab-raised mouse too can build species-specific burrow due to its genes, carrying various DNA
B. a lab-raised mouse too can build species-specific burrow because of its genes that carry various DNA
C. a mouse raised in the lab builds species-specific burrow so that its genes carry various DNA
D. a mouse in the lab can build species-specific burrow as its genes can carry various DNA
E. a lab-raised mouse too can build species-specific burrows because of their genes carrying various DNA

Official answer and detailed solution will be posted after a few responses.
Happy Practicing. :)


of course it is E. Seems like a Classic GMAT problem. What's new? the colon?


Hi docdrizzeally.

E) a lab-raised mouse too can build species-specific burrows because of their genes carrying various DNA

I think E is incorrect because "a lab-raised mouse" is singular ==> "their genes" is wrong. It should be "its genes". IMO, B is correct.

Regards.
