Hi Dharmin,

A new lesson for you. In GMAT one + that is considered redundant. C is out for this reason.
E is correct.

Hi Chung (u post good ones aye)

Here is my explaination why A is wrong and C is correct.

The department defines a private passenger vehicle as one registered to an individual with a gross weight of less than 8000 pounds.

A - The reason A is wrong is that, this sentence makes it sound that the vehical is registered to an individual whose weight is less that 8000 pounds. Hence this is wrong.

C as one that is registered to an individual and that has a gross weight of less than 8000 pounds - Correct one. The inclusion of THAT in both the REGISTERED and for the WEIGHT, clearly explains it.

I hope this helps. This is to clear the difference between A and C, as for your question. The rest is already understood.

It is true that ONE+THAT is redundant.

But choice E does not flow, it is not correct...Let me put the choice E along with the orginal one. Now read it... do u see anything wrong?

The department defines a private passenger vehicle as having a gross weight of less than 8000 pounds and registered to an individual.

Hmmm, how we explain better than this ... alright, let us look at these sentences....

a) Newtons third law defines THAT....
b) The jury defines THAT,

An example for DEFINED AS ( you would have already seen DEFINED AS, tense usage).

It cannot be, Newtons 3rd law defines as :lol:

Defines THAT and Defined AS. Sentence E does not satisfy this, hence it is OUT.

I hope you got my point :-) Again, GMAT tests on picking the best of the choices, even though it is redundant. C is the best choice. I hope this helps.

Regards

The OA is C.

E is wrong because the participial phrases are not placed correctly.

the department defines x as adj and adj.

the participle must be right next to the noun.
the department defines x as one adj and adj.

E isn't parallel, in my opinion.
A is wrong because it sounds like individual weight less than 8000 lbs.

C is right.

D to have a gross weight less than 8000 pounds and being registered to an individual
E as having a gross weight of less than 8000 pounds and registered to an individual


E lacks parallelism IMO; having acts as a gerund (not participle because of it being preceded by AS [in turn acting as preposition --- defines a private passenger vehicle AS (in the capacity of) having a gross weight etc...]); registered of course is a past participle.

Hence there is a lack of parallelism.

Another (perhpas less complicated) way of looking at E is by breaking the parts joined by AND

The department

defines a pvt passenger vehicle

AS

having a gross weight of blah blah

AND

registered to an individual

A defines B AS Y and Z

Now, the parts Y and Z should be independent units in their own right and the sentence should hold if we split it as

A defines B AS Y
A defines B AS Z.

Now look at our sentence

The dept defines a pvt passenger vehicle AS having a gross weight of less than 8000 pounds

AND

The dept defines a pvt passenger vehicle AS registered to an individual --

This actually reverses the meaning - it says a private vehicle is registered to an individual where as the intent of the definition is that a vehicle will be defined as a private vehicle if it is registered to an individual.
