Not the place where a verbal question should be.

Post it in verbal SC section.

I know I mistakenly posted it here.

Now, can't people worry less about the places it should be at and more about answering a relevant GMAT question ? :\

What's your doubt? The explanation is fairly obvious.

The antecedent of 'it' is fairly ambiguous in C. What does 'it' represent - insulin or isolation of insulin ?
Do not use your common sense to assume it as isolation of insulin. Try to answer the question as if you know nothing about insulin. On GMAT, it has to be clearly mentioned, and pronoun with an ambiguous antecedent is a straightforward killer.

Get the doubt, now ?

No explanation by sairajesh calling it "strt fwd with a bent face" ?

vailad, the mainpoint here is the isolation of insulin..and not insulin itself...
the choice which I suppose you selected (D) mistakenly refers to insulin itself in the second phrase of the sentence..which renders it incorrect.

In option (C) as per your concern, "it" is not ambigous..it correctly refers to "isolation of insulin" introduced in the first phrase...There is no mention of insulin independently hence "it" refering to just insulin does not come...

I chose (C)...however it was tough between C and D.

Hope I was clear...

That was my point. I could now think of rejecting D. D would have been perfect, had it said - "discovery of insulin", "synthesis of insulin" in the second part. (It again brings 'logic' in picture, which should not be the case though)

My concern for ambiguous antecedent in C still remains. But once D out, C is the choice.

Anyways, +1 for iamgame. :)

In C "it" refers to insulin where as "it" should refer to isolation of insulin, and even the meaning is changed so D is the correct choice
