A is not answer since "those" donot match with "spinal coloumb" which is singular.


Can any one tell me why not E

I think It is B

A a spinal column is compared with plural
B Correct
C Chimpanzees should be the subject ..otherwise ‘so were’ doesn’t match
D Chimpanzees should be the subject
E Chimpanzees should be the subject

D would also suggest the spinal columns are walking, in my opinion.

agreed

CDE are all out b/c they state that the spinal columns are walking.

I like B better than A b/c it's shorter although PR says gmat likes using those/that of for apples and oranges.

B.
It should be either "a spinal column that resembled an ape's" or "spinal columns that resembled those of apes' ". Only the former is correctly expressed in B.

I dont think THOSE was referring 'spinal column' I thought it was connecting to apes'. I think A & E has missing apostrophe though I dont know what the right answer is. I throw in my towels. whats a OA and OE?

I really think that all of them are wrong. But in the rush, I'd pick B, after all, the others try to say that the poor monkeys had a few columns each. Quite heavy to accept! :oops:
