the ans should start with "that"... because "of" doesn't make any sense, also, we need a different clause to explain what is the evidence.
On this basis we can negate option A and B ... and now we have only option C, D and E

Option E uses like to provide an example ... therefore it is out

Option D uses "a person" which makes subject singular ... but if we see the sentence after the underlined sentence it contains pronoun "their" which refers to the same subject ... thus it cant be singular ... it has to be a pleural.

Now we are left with only one option, i. e. Option C... hence it is the answer.

If "ing" was removed from the end of answer C, it would be correct. As they are now, none of the answers are correct.

Hi all,

This is the correct version of the sentence. This should now be easy to solve:

Scientists have found new evidence of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as heartburn--by monitoring what's going on within their bodies.

(A) of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as
(B) of people initially registering emotions such as sadness or anger much the same as experiencing
(C) that people initially register emotions such as sadness or anger in much the same way as they experience
(D) that a person initially registers emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing
(E) that a person initially registers emotions like sadness or anger much the same as

Thanks. :)

Please post the right question... C cant be the right answer, it cant end with "ing". Stacy has the correct question. and yes with the correct question "C" is indeed the right answer.

:shock: something is fishy here.

experiencing isn't parallel with the verb register.It should be experience,I suppose.

Anyways,interesting it is.
