What is wrong with D ?


Is C the right answer then.? :idea:

I did not pick up D because I thought 'so that ' immediately placed after a comma(,) looked incorrect.

The gurus will give better explanation.

(D) so that they manufacture their own antifreeze

(E) thus the manufacture of its own antifreeze


D) so that they manufacture their own antifreeze

I see two problems with D

one,
Usage of so that usually requires a referant. Also, so that usually ends with a conclusion
For example,
I need to study grammer so that I get a better verbal score in GMAT
second,
usage of manufacture doesn't fit well with the sentence


On the other hand

in choice C, "in effect manufacturing their own antifreeze" a appositive phrase acts as a modifier keeping the sentence clear.

yeah, we need appositive here. "C" should be it.
