London is not the object here
The object is "crown jewls of London"

Although it seems which refers to London, you cannot break down the object like this ... "which" refers to Crown jewels of London

Shouldn't there be a comma before the which.

The new crime thriller book is about the crown jewels of London which had been stolen by an international cat burglar who turns out to be the cousin of Prince Harry.
a) which had been stolen by an international cat burglar who
b) that were stole by a famous international cat burglar who
c) which were stealed by a famous cat burglar that
d) that had been stolen by an international cat burglar which
e) who an international cat burglar had stolen and

The OA is a. Don't we need a comma before the which?

Correct answer is A based on the point of elimination technique.

I agree there should be a comma their. I chose B

But which is probably better suited.

which had been stolen by an international cat burglar who turns out to be the cousin of Prince Harry.

As this is a nonrestrictive clause modifying the crown jewels

-since the object is "the crown jewels", E is eliminated since who does not correctly refer to the object.
-no commas were used because the clause are essential refer to MGMAT SC Pg 87.
-stole, and stealed are incorrect, A and C eliminated.
-cat burglar = person. Therefore, "who" is needed after cat burglar, D eliminated.
