Can someone explain what the "that" in the sentence refers to? And why?

"That" is use to introduce sub-clauses in sentence, and the sub-clause itself should stand as complete sentence.

In this sentence sub-clause is introduced as "that lying produces emotional reactions in an individual" and than introduce another sub-clause "that, in turn, create unconscious physiological responses". Now in second clause it is not clear what is creating physiological responses, thus incorrect and not required.

The correct sub-clause will be

"that lying produces emotional reactions in an individual creating, in turn, unconscious physiological responses"

A

Sorry for the short explanation. "reactions...create" this is correct agreement between subject and verb (even though not the main subject and verb of the sentence).

OA is A.

Anyone one know why "that, in turn" does not refer to "individual"?

I wont agree and I dont feel this sort of question would appear in GMAT either if answer is A.

That cannot refer to reactions.

"In an individual" is a prepositional phrase which can not act as a subject for the sub-clause.

Hence that will refer to the "emotional responses"

"emotional reactions in an individual" is the subject

A clearly shows that emotional reactions are creating physical res[ponses and not lying

I go for 'A' too.

A. that, in turn, create unconscious physiological responses
B. that creates unconscious physiological responses in turn. Since the comma is missing after 'that', the continuous sentence make it sound like it's the individusl cresting physiological responses.
C. creating, in turn, unconscious physiological responses. Incorrect tense
D. to create, in turn, physiological responses that are unconscious
E. who creates unconscious physiological responses in turn. Responses can never be who
