Welcome to GMAT Club.

the problem is not so much about the article "the" as it is about usage

Quote:
(E) of the America where a population
was

the correct usage is "the" population.

where did you find this SC? i wonder if this is a GMAT quality question.

actually i think the problem is not on a or the but on the correct use of

'whose' and 'where'

they require specific situation and in this particular one, whose is correct.

maybe, but where signifies location and thus is not totally wrong.

Yes...

but when we try to re-phrase the words it is really the population of america ( the point at issue here is the population rather than point of origin - location -)...and although where is not totally wrong as you said, but somehow whose is better suited here.

I agree that this kind of question is quite tricky.
