Nice job...

Computational analyses of data is used for the construction of models of neural processes; these models are not intended to represent actual neurological systems.

A. Computational analyses of data is used for the construction of models of neural processes; these models are not intended to represent actual neurological systems.
A. "Analyses" is a plural subject and does not match the singular verb "is." Second, "for the construction of" is wordy.

B. Models of neural processes are constructed by computational analyses of data, and it is not intended to represent actual neurological systems.
B. Passive voice, "models… are constructed… by analyses", is stylistically weak and usually incorrect in the GMAT SC.

C. Computational analyses of data are used to construct models of neural processes; these models are not intended to represent actual neurological systems.
C. Correct. "Analyses… are…" maintains subject-verb agreement, the infinitive "to construct" is concise, and, lastly, "intended to" is idiomatically correct.

D. Computational analysis of data is used to construct models of neural processes and are not intended for the representation of actual neurological systems.
D. "Analysis" is a singular subject, and the second verb "are" is plural.

E. Models of neural processes and that are not intended to represent actual neurological systems are constructed by using computational analyses of data.
E. As in B, passive voice is used incorrectly. Second, the prepositional phrase "of neural processes" is not parallel to the relative clause "that are not intended…"

Analyses - plural subject
hence verb has to be plural.

Hence correct answer choice is C.

B -out--- use of "it" is ambiguous
C - out-- use of "are" for singular computational analyses is wrong
E - out --"intended to represent" changes the meaning of the sentence

A & D: "used for" seems more logical than "used to". We cannot construct a model using a data(Can we?) . We can only use data analysis as an input to create models.

Therefore A looks good.

Revise my answer to C after reading the explanations. Totally tricked me.

Is analyses plural or singular?

i believe its singular because analyses is which something we come into some conclusion so we don't have two conclusions.so i think A should be the answer

If u say analyses is plural then C is the answer.......

Plz explain me.....

Clearly C.

Plural "analyses" requires "are".

Is this really 700-level?

Between A and C I chose C,as analyses was plural and S-V agreement was satisfied by C.
