Hi Natics,

A - incorrect, the sentence includes two conjugated verbs placed one after another
C - incorrect, the verb "seem" should be followed by the base form of a verb with "to", not V-ing form
D - the part "that making no biological sense" should be a clause, however, it does not include a conjugated verb and therefore it is a fragment

Hi Kasia,

E-gmat does not have an E answer, but I just made it up for completeness

Thank you for explanation, It's good to know about "seem to " Because I did not see a difference between choices B&C.

I was confused between B and E and almost picked up E, but then I realised that E does not have "may",
Hence change of meaning led me to chose option B.

But is there any other reason to discard E?
