C it is

Such as is right idiom as we are listing examples of certain commodities

remains is the verb here because market is singular

Please explain why SUCH AS ?
why can't I use LIKE


Because "such as" is used to cite examples whereas "Like" is used to compare similar concepts.

such as vs like. We need such as here since aluminium is quoted as an example of recycled commodities.

So A, B, E are otu.

Between C and D, C is correct. The market is singular and need 'remains'.

C it is.

D.commodities, such as aluminum and other metals , remain

E.commodities , like the commodities of aluminum and other metals , remains

E it is ,,,,thr's my resoning
1) market is singular,,,,therefore " remains" required.
a,d are out!
D is too awkward,,,,
choice is between Cand E,,,,,,there we are talking about commodities,,,,,,,,,C compares commudities with aluminum(metal),,,,whic is incorrect,,,hence it is E.

C) aluminium and metals in general are already commodities, so "such as" gives an example of an commodity.

E) should be out because i dont think that commodities of aluminum exist. what would this be ?

C definitely

i have also noticed that this is a very popular question on the GMAT, and invariably unless we are showing the likening of one subject to something else, we shouldnt use like.

such as is best because it means for example

and invariably like is more wrong than right on the gmat questions, cause they usually would use similar or some word like that.
