Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
A and B use which and this gives a confusing meaning.
I don't like C and E because they use whose when refering to rules as the thing posessing the effects. I think that strict grammar only allows the use of whose for people, animals and nouns that indicate groups of people (eg country). I think that rules need the form of which. However, I am a bit unsure about D because it does not need to be plural, because construction is singular.
My answer is C. I only had to choose between C and E.
I eliminated A,B and D because there was no comma before it.
Here is a tip from Erins' test magic forum.:
But first, a testmagic tip: GMAT almost always (I say almost always because I've seen two questions that did not follow this rule, but the rule was violated in all five answer choices) wants you to put a comma before which. In other words, if you see which without a comma before it, it's probably wrong. _________________
