I like this sentence a lottt :) :twisted:

During the exam if you do not attack it more aggressive than normal it put you out of ttrack for sure.

In this case all seems correct and the meaning doesn't help me too much this time.

In this situation look at the nuances, scanning all 5 choices at time and eliminate them as soon as possible.

From - generally it is used when we talk about some geographical place

In which - in which a phenomenon, inside it, deep inside have no sense.

Between - is needed because we want a distinction between something ( 2 things and between wants always AND, so stay on the look out, among for several things eventhough there are some exceptions)

All this brainstroming lead me to D.

Indeed, D is the correct answer

You nailed it Carcass! The problem gives two choices "distinguish X from Y" and "distinguish between X and Y". The second one, "distinguish between X and Y', is idiomatically preferred on the GMAT, thus (A) is eliminated. (B) is wordy and awkward. (C) has pronoun "they" with no logical antecedent. (E) does not provide the appropriate parallel structure.

here is the official explanation from kaplan

Answer D - A quick scan reveals the two choices "distinguish X from Y" and "distinguish between X and Y". The second one, "distinguish between X and Y', is idiomatically preferred on the GMAT. Also note that (B) is wordy and awkward because it eliminates the two modifiers (the two "which" phrases) and replaces them with longer dependent clauses ("the first of which . . ." and "the second of which . . ."). Thus we eliminate (A) and (B).

Now we examine (C), (D) and (E). In choice (C), the pronoun "they" has no logical antecedent. Structurally, the antecedent would appear to be "Psychologists", but then we would have the illogical idea that psychologists have experienced blunt force trauma to the head. So we eliminate (C).

Between choices (D) and (E), (D) is better because (E) does not provide the appropriate parallel structure. (E) has the non-parallel "organic amnesia, in which . . . and psychogenic amnesia, which . . .", whereas (D) provides the parallel "organic amnesia, which . . . and psychogenic amnesia, which . . .". Therefore (D) is correct.

I beg to differ with your reasoning. Using 'and' is as meaningful as using 'from' in relation to the word 'Distinguish'. I don't think this question is representative of GMAT, especially, given the fact that options A & D have no errors in them.

Secondly, when you can distinguish A-s from B-s, the emphasis is on the A-s. You are capable of singling an A out, when you see it in a bundle of A-s and B-s. Of course, if you can do that, you can logically do the converse (B-s) too.

On the other hand, when you can distinguish between A-s and B-s, there is no such emphasis. The weight is on the act of distinguishing itself, and A-s and B-s are, so to say, equals.

In the original question, clearly the author is implying to stress that one amnesia is different from the other.

A and D use correct idioma distinguish x from y /distinguish between x and y. I don't see errors in A and D. Plz explain why D is the answer!

"Idiomatically preferred on the gmat" is such a grey area. A seems perfectly alright along with D. I really hope on the actual test it doesn't boil down to having to choose between two correct answer choices.
