Only (E) properly completes the definition of CA with "uses".

Andy - there are other errors in D that make it incorrect...

"...disease that involves the introduction"...seems like its the disease that involves the introduction. It distorts the meaning.

Agreed. Don't let all the junk in the middle fool you. Utlimiately, the sentence is "CA.....uses..."

I think, its betwen D and E. Correct idiom is "to diagnose"

I go for D.

I vote for D for the following reasons:

to diagonse is more idiomatic correct i think..

also rest of it sounds good.. since a sophisticated is a sub clause... so fi you remove it..

Coronary angiography,,subcaluse...blah blah...,is now administered selectively, because it uses x-rays to observe cardiac function.

"it" points to the right subject too.. so this soudns the best..

i guess the toss up is between to diagnose and for diagonsing..

if not dm, it has to be A..

Only 'C' is good.

All other choices are faulty.
I'm also finding it slightly difficult to kick out 'A'.

What is the OA?

Thanks professor for your summary.

I have a question regarding the use of the word "involving"- would it be fair to say that the manner in which this word used here means that it is the disease and not the angiography involves introduction of the dye etc.

I have seen in cases of ||isms involving seperation by commas, the part between commas usually seeks to "define" or "explain" the noun. In this case CA is defined or explained as "a sophisticated method of diagnosing coronary disease" and then the sentence follows the logical
....,involves....uses etc.

So it is clearly C.

even though it took longer than normal, chose C since "involves" is used instead of "involving"
