Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by the Sun
and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.

A. Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by
the Sun and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute
particles of dust.
B. Clouds form by the Sun’s warmth evaporating the water in the oceans, which rises
high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.
C. Warmed by the Sun, ocean water evaporates, rises high into the atmosphere, and
condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form clouds.
D. The water in the oceans evaporates, warmed by the Sun, rises high into the
atmosphere, and condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust, which
forms clouds.
E. Ocean water, warmed by the Sun, evaporates and rises high into the atmosphere,
which then condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form as
clouds.

I get C as well.

For parallelism it should be evaporates, rises, and condenses. This rules out A and B.

In E it says they for 'as' clouds.

C does indeed show ||ism, which makes this one very tough. C does not show the sequence required for the formation of the clouds. It just says that oceans water does X,Y and Z.

A could be a possiblity since it correctly shows the sequence.


BUT in the actualy GMAT i would be torn and would lock in C based on my ear. I wouldn't be surprised if A is correct.

C is the most appropriate - A has a disconnect - but I also wouldn't be surprised if A is the right answer - anybody has the OA???

C.

A is wrong because of its use of "condensing", clouds does not condensing in tiny droplets.

This question is really tricky because the answer is a sentence deeply altered in its structure. And it's not a common practice in the SC part.

So just like billy says that A is wrong because of "condensing", right?
I'm wondering whether "is warmed" and "rises" are parallel...can anyone help me? thanks!

My queries:

A.are "is warmed" and "rises" parallel?
C.Does "Warmed by the Sun," modify i. ocean water evaporates, ii. rises high into the atmosphere, ii. and
condenses in... If it is, does not it seems problematic!!!

+1 for (C)
This is a tricky question.
A. Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by
the Sun and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute
particles of dust.PASSIVE INITIALLY BUT ACTIVE IN THE LATER PART-inappropriate
B. Clouds form by the Sun’s warmth evaporating the water in the oceans, which rises
high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.WHICH IS MODIFYING OCEAN-incorrect
C. Warmed by the Sun, ocean water evaporates, rises high into the atmosphere, and
condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form clouds.-Correct
D. The water in the oceans evaporates, warmed by the Sun, rises high into the
atmosphere, and condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust, which
forms clouds."WARMED BY THE SUN"IS MODIFYING "EVAPORATES"-incorrect
E. Ocean water, warmed by the Sun, evaporates and rises high into the atmosphere,
which then condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form as
clouds."WHICH" IS MODIFYING ATMOSPHERE-incorrect

In answer choice C what is modifying what? Can someone please clarify?

C) Warmed by the Sun, ocean water evaporates, rises high into the atmosphere, and
condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form clouds.

Warmed by the Sun REFERS TO ocean water RIGHT? Is 'warmed by the sun' the modifier?

THEN Ocean water evaporates, rises and condenses? RIGHT?

will D be correct if it is:

Warmed by the Sun,the water in the oceans evaporates, rises high into the
atmosphere, and condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust, which
forms clouds.

not really; in this case 'dust' itself is forming the clouds rather than the whole act (process of water evaporating blabla) forming the clouds. makes sense?

A. Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by
the Sun and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute
particles of dust.
B. Clouds form by the Sun’s warmth evaporating the water in the oceans, which rises
high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.
C. Warmed by the Sun, ocean water evaporates, rises high into the atmosphere, and
condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form clouds.
D. The water in the oceans evaporates, warmed by the Sun, rises high into the
atmosphere, and condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust, which
forms clouds.
E. Ocean water, warmed by the Sun, evaporates and rises high into the atmosphere,
which then condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form as
clouds.

For similar questions with number of events, We need to cross check the events for parallelism as well as chronological sequence. This will help to eliminate couple of answer choices. Among remaining option choices, wrong ones will have errors such as Subject Verb agreement, Misplaced Modifier error.
Now let's see specifically in this question.

A. Warmed by the Sun and condensing in tiny droplets are not parallel. Ocean water is more correct way to use than Ocean's water.
B. Sun's warmth evaporating is awkward. Ocean water is more correct than verbose usage of water in the oceans. which has unclear referent. Events are not parallel at all.
C. evaporates.. rises high.., condenses..is absolutely correct parallel construction. Sequence of events also correct before formation of clouds.
D. warmed by the Sun is misplaced modifier(This is done correctly in 'E'). It should be placed after water. Formation of cloud is the major event. Usage of which looks awkward as it is trying make sense of sentence with last few words modified by which.
E. evaporates, rises , which then condenses are not parallel. form into cloud is more correct than form as clouds in terms of meaning.

OA is in fact (C)

Evaporates, rises, condenses are all parallel

P.D. I think that rises high is redundant though, not a GMAT type question
