C- is parallel. Adjective......present participial is parallel,because both are working as adjective.
why A and B is incorrect.We need that to indicate belief,hypothesis,evidence .without that the sentence seems awkward.read the option A and B-what are they meaning?
D and E have agreement error.we need people not a singular subject.their is in non underlined part.
c remain the best choice

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 way as experiencing
C. that people initially register emotions such as sadness or anger in much the same way as they experiencing
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 way as



i pick C. one split is such as/like so A and E are out. in my point of view "experiencing" is a dangling modifier so B and D are out. please correct me if my thought process is wrong.

Choice 'c' seems awkward as written. "as they experiencing heartburn.." seems wrong to me

Strike 1 => idiom a, b out
Strike 2 => such as (example) vs like E out
Strike 3 => verb tense (plural) D out

Looking back I think if u keep verb tense D and E fall out. Right idiom A and B fall out! Quicker!

Scientists have found new evidence of people ....... vs scintists have found new evidence that...

I mean why do we opt sentence with "that" instead of "of "


that followed by a sentence segment is a restrictive clause which shows the importance of the matter which follows "that"
"of"makes it very general and has larger scope under consideration

out of all 5, i shortlisted b and c, and the only reason i could digest c was that b uses 'ing' that is not preferable in GMAT. Otherwise i'm not clear why new evidence in the question is to follow 'that' insted of 'of'
