A. is universal, encompassing much of the human condition while occasionally she deals – Subject Verb Agreement - Eliminated
B. is universal, encompassing much of the human condition, also occasionally it deals – Subject verb Agreement - Eliminated
C. are universal, they encompass much of the human condition and occasionally deals
D. are universal, encompassing much of the human condition while occasionally dealing – Avoid ‘ing’ - Eliminated
E. are universal, they encompass much of the human condition, also occasionally are dealing


My thought here....
A, B - Subject Verb agreement and hence eliminated.

Left with C,D & E
D - Eliminated too many 'ings'. GMAT people don't like them.

Left with C & E
E - I find it too wordy and what points to the wrong answer is '......also occasionally are dealing...'

Hence my answer is "C"
What say everyone any changes to the process followed??

C. are universal, they encompass much of the human condition and occasionally deals
D. are universal, encompassing much of the human condition while occasionally dealing
E. are universal, they encompass much of the human condition, also occasionally are dealing => not ||

My Answer : D

@vc019
D - Eliminated too many 'ings'. GMAT people don't like them.

Very True , but here "ing" is fine as it is used a participle immediately following the comman - explaning the clause before the comman.
