The subject of the sentence is Relationship and C is the only choice that correctly corelates the subject properly with the predicate --- It is the relationship with his mother which is the most enigmatic of all his relationships with women.

Now in GMAT there is this concept that "which" always modifies the nearest noun - however the general rule, that nouns occurring within prepositional phrases do not get modified by the relative "which or that"; instead only the nominative gets modified -- still holds

C is my choice.

C, for the same reasons explained. B is tempting, but the sentence has no meaning if completed with B.

Straight C.. Emphasis is on relation.. sentence need to say relation is enigmatic not Grace..

Clear C.

But it would have been better with "that" rather than "which".

Eliminate [, Grace,] and the meaning will become clear... you will see that trap with commas and "which"/"who" has been deleted that way...

I also picked C
but the questions is "which" can refer to "the relationship" in GMAT?

Try removing " ,Grace, " from the sentence and I think it makes sense.
Thats my line of reasoning and I may be wrong :roll: .

Clear winner C.

which clearly refers to the relationship. Remove "grace" and the sentence makes perfect sense.

(A) which is probably the most enigmatic of all the women in his life
(B) who is probably the most enigmatic of all the women in his life
(C) which is probably the most enigmatic of all his relationships with women
(D) who, of all the relationships he had with women, is probably the most enigmatic
(E) which, of all the women in his life, is probably the most enigmatic relationship he had


"It is the relationship" requires "which" in the later portion.
Moreover, "relationship" can be compared only with "relationship" and not with "the women".

Only C gives the correct option.
