A, C and D can be eliminated b/c

The use of gravity waves..will..enable is the proper structure.

E is wrong b/c

you cannot interact with matter such..

I'm going with B. :P

For some reason my ear doesn't like "hopefully will enable" or "will, it is hoped, enable"...

Does anyone else think it's C? "in the way electromagnetic waves do" sounds awkward to me..I'm not sure on this one though...

Use of 'like' or 'such as' is incorrect.
b/w A and B,
I choose B

Going with B

We can eliminate CDE because like and such as is not needed in the sentence because of the meaning.
A, doesnt sound good to me.

in short, the sentence's core is gravity waves do not interact with matter in the way electromagnetic waves interact with matter.
it's not gravity waves do not interact with electromagnetic way.
Thus, C, D, and E are wrong due to the uses of " like and such as" , which make electromagnetic an example of matter of the kind.
Between A and B, I choose B.

*NOTE: As what I've learned about when to use "hope" and "hopefully" from GMAXonline, "hopefully" is commonly used in spoken English to mean "I/we/he....hope". It's fine to use "hopefully" this way in spoken English, even formal spoken English, but not in GMAT! In GMAT, "hopefully" is ONLY used to mean a hopeful frame of mind, for example: " The teacher looks hopefully at his students." ( mean he has hope in his eyes as looking at his students.)

Laxiqv> Outstanding explanation :!: Yes, it is often the case that standard acceptable colloquialisms are not the best choice. I saw a problem very similiar to this on my first official test, so be on the lookout.

Going with B.

(A) - 'hopefully' is not appropriate
(B) in the way electromagnetic waves do, will, it is hoped, enable
(C)- 'like' is not appropriate here as we are not comparing the likeness between gravity waves and EM waves, but the way they interact with matter
(D)- same as C
(E) - 'such as' should be used for examples

B is the best choice
