Hi there,

lets look at the options:

(A) as one registered to an individual with a gross weight of less than 8,000 pounds.
In this sentence, it seems to be the individual having a gross weight of more than 8000 pounds. :lol:
so this makes no sense.

(B) to be one that is registered to an individual with a gross weight of less than 8,000 pounds.
Again here, the individual is incorrectly modified as having a weight of more than 8000 pounds. Also, x defines y to be seems to be an incorrect idiom, it should be x defines y as

(C) as one that is registered to an individual and that has a gross weight of less than 8,000 pounds.
In this option, the idiom x defines y as is properly used. Also a parallel structure is correctly introduced to modify the one (private passenger vehicle).
So this option is correct.

(D) to have a gross weight less than 8,000 pounds and being registered to an individual.
The idiom x defines y to seems incorrect in the context. Also there is an incorrect parallel structure

(E) as having a gross weight of less than 8,000 pounds and registered to an individual.
In this option, the idiom is correctly used. However, we have an incorrect parallel structure; having... and registered... are not parallel.

Correct Ans: C

Enjoy! :-D

IMO IN OPTION C.
ONE and THAT(together) ===>THIS IS REDUNDANT.
ALTHOUGH option C is the best of lot.

Option C is the best !

D & E - ruled out for HAVING and BEING
A & B - says that a person with a gross weight of 8000 lbs.

C clearly uses a conjunction and best of the lot.

Remember, we are picking the best of the lot in sentence correction..

The department defines a private passenger vehicle as one registered to an individual with a gross weight of less than 8,000 pounds.
(A) as one registered to an individual with a gross weight of less than 8,000 pounds. (What!! IF an individual has a gross weight less than 8000 pound, then his vehicle will be called private passenger vehicle)----- nonsensical
(B) to be one that is registered to an individual with a gross weight of less than 8,000 pounds. ( Define only takes "AS" --IDIOM--)
(C) as one that is registered to an individual and that has a gross weight of less than 8,000 pounds. (//ism----that and that correct)
(D) to have a gross weight less than8,000 pounds and being registered to an individual.
(E) as having a gross weight of less than 8,000 pounds and registered to an individual.

Your KUDOS will inspire me to post more explanations .
