B ?

It has to end in "a" because it is referring to a random person. A is wrong. B sounds "righter" :lol:

Although that's true, I don't think GMAT would really test the pluralness vs. singularness of "phenomena", or its latin relatives (e.g. data). Lots of people have trouble with those words.

I think the more obvious problem with D is the misplaced comma (similarly, semicolon in C & E).

I vote (B).

I'll go with B, for the reason of achieving parallelism, although I would prefer it to read as "as it would to a person"
