Teratomas are unusual forms of cancer because they are composed of tissues such as tooth and bone not normally found in the organ in which the tumor appears
A.) because they are composed of tissues such as tooth and bone
B.) because they are composed of tissues like tooth and bone that are
C.) because they are composed of tissues, like tooth and bone, tissues
D.) in that their composition, tissues such as tooth and bone, is
E.) in that they are composed of tissues such as tooth and bone, tissues
I'm not able to choose between C & E. Can someone explain the answer, please? I will post the OA later.
A - "not normally found..." modifies "bone"
B - "that.." modifies "bone" again
D - Composition = tissues ? One is singular, the other is plural.
In gmat "like" is used to show similarity whereas "such as" means example. By this reasoning we straight away eliminate choices B, C.
Further "because" is used to express a simple relationship whereas "in that" qualifies the previous statement. In this sentence use of because is wrong, also in Gmat "in that " is preferred over "because". _________________
