Option A is wrong because the salvage company is collecting salvage items {collects X such as...... , verb ing(discarding)}. Here it means that the salvage company is discarding the electronic items, whereas the intended meaning is items that have been discarded is being collected and sent to state facilities for recycling.....hope this helps.

If you analyze the question properly even the option B is incorrect! There shouldnt have been a comma before "that" in option B.

A and C have been discussed. Lets check other statementes one by one-

The new “e-waste” salvage company collects electronic waste items, such as old cellular telephones and broken personal music players, discarding them as trash, to transport them to state facilities for recycling.

B players, that have been discarded as trash and transports
-In this sentence the comma before "that" is incorrect
D players, which have been discarded as trash and transport
-company collects and trasport? Very obvious SV error. dont even need to analyze further the correctnes of modifier etc.
E players, that are discarded as trash and transport
Same error as D.

Ans B is best among given choices and could have been ideal if comma was not there.

B- Correct
C-there is no verb
D & E-plural verb transport instead of transports.
Hope this helps.

RED= verb BLUE = subject
The new “e-waste” salvage company collects electronic waste items, such as old cellular telephones and broken personal music

A: wrong.Discarding here means to say that the company is discarding the electronic items. This changes the meaning of the sentence.
B:wrong. You cannot have a comma before that.
C:wrong. There are two verbs in the clause "that are discarded, as trash in order to transport" which are not properly connected in a sentence. You need to have either and,or etc. to connect the two verbs. Or You can say "transporting" instead of "to transport".
D:wrong. SV agreement error. Company needs a singular verb tranports.
E:wrong. You cannot have a comma before that.

B would have been correct if there was no comma before that.

I mentioned above that "that" cannot come after a comma, but there is a special case when this is correct. The case in B is that case so B is the correct option.
The usage of that is correct in the following case, when that is follows a noun-modifier.:
Noun,noun-modifier,that clause

Hii vips,
I have a slight disagreement over what you said regarding comma usage with "that".
1) comma along with that can't stand in situations such as relative clause
2) comma along with that can stand in situations where that is part of a modifier. If you remove the context between the two commas, the sentence can stand equally well.
By the way, moving to the question, first thing that should strike one's mind is parallelism. TRANSPORT should be "transports", which is parallel to "collects", as per SVA.
Hope that helps.

Hi Marcab,
Thanks for your feedback - however if you notice, 1. a relative clause is also a modifier. 2. In this question 'that' is used as part of relative clause only.
Therefore, I stand my ground - B is the best among given choices, but the B would have been ideal had the comma not been there.
Hope it is clear.

hey vips.
Many thanks for the reply.
Regarding the explanation you gave me just now, I totally with you and to your explanation that if "that" is in a relative clause then it can't be preceded by a comma.
But not to forget that we can easily remove the context with the two commas and hence remove the precedence of "that" with a comma.
Your explanation had been correct, if "that" modified "players" BUT since its modifying "trash" then "that" is correct in such usage.
Hope that helps.

Hii Vips. How are you doing?
Btw, I found an article regarding the precedence of "that" with a "comma".
According to MGMAT, when a short non-essential phrase intervenes and is set off by commas, then such a construction is needed.
Ex-Our system of Presidential elections favors states, such as Delaware, that by population are over-represented in the Electoral College.
If you have MGMAT SC 5ED, then its given on page number 239.
Hope that helps.

That's exactly what I'm thinking. I picked B because the "e waste" salvage company must go with singular verb "transports". Only B is correct except the comma before "that".
