The use of lie detectors | is based on the assumption |
that lying produces emotional reactions | ..blah..blah..blah..| that, in turn, create unconscious physiological responses.

My take is A. the given sentence is the way it should have been. If not, am making a grave grammatical error. what's the OA?

you r right...
I cannot understand why is not E,
I though that the subject of the last phrase could be " an individual" becouse the pronoun refers to the closest noun... :cry:

in A the reactions create.....
in E the answer is saying the individual creates
In other words they are both saying two different things.
The pronoun who does refer to individual but changes the meaning. In other words, a pronoun error is not involved.

(B) that creates unconscious physiological
responses in turn

A is the correct answer

(E ). If responses are unconscious - how can indiviual create them? use of who is wrong

(D) to create, in turn, physiological responses that are unconscious: to create gives the sense of purpose- this means that lying created emotional reactions to create unconscious physiological responses – that is for the purpose of creating physiological responses. This is a wrong implication.
(C) creating, in turn, unconscious physiological responses: again, ambiguous subject and wrong use of in turn
(B) that creates unconscious physiological responses in turn : that can be either lying here or emotional reactions. Since the sentence is using creates- it is taking a singular subject – that means lying – but then the use of ‘in turn’ is wrong . If both actions are done by lying, then in turn can’t be used.

Can "that" as a pronoun be used to refer to plural antecedent? in this case emotional reactions?

@ashwinkumar96

Sure, it can do.
For example: My book is one the most interesting books that were issued last year.
