Such as is correct instead of like, so A and E are out. "They experiencing" is not correct, it would have to be they are experiencing, so C is out.

Between B and D, I chose D because I don't think the registering of emotions is happening at the same time as the experiencing of heartburn, so they should not both be in the present progressive indicating that they are both happening right now. Just a guess!

Because the sentence ends with "within their bodies" - we need plural in underline part. So I eliminated D and E.

In C register and experiencing are not parallel so I eliminated it.

Between A and B, I want to have heartburn different from emotions like sadness. Heartburn is a condition and not emotion.

So IMO B is correct.

B

As far as GMAT is concerned, examples can't be marked with LIKE A. of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as

SUCH AS is the correct way. Plus, registering / experiencing is correct parallelism B. of people initially registering emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing

Parallelism - register / experiencing C. that people initially register emotions such as sadness or anger in much the same way as they experiencing

Parallelism - registers / experiencing D. that a person initially registers emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing

As far as GMAT is concerned, examples can't be marked with LIKE E. that a person initially registers emotions like sadness or anger much the same way as

OA Is B . It has the same -ing form for the word experience and correctly matches the sentence.

B is wrong.

You can not use evidence of...found evidence that is correct usage. Also 'much the same way' is weird.

for the same reason A is wrong. A uses wrong usage of Like-such as should be used.

D and E are out S-V disagreement.

C by POE...but they experiencing is not parallel. Rest everything is correct.

Have you taken this from Gmatprep or you have copied from the forums? I do not think this is the correct version of Gmatprep question.

I thought it was pretty common to use - Scientists have found evidence of life on ........

IMO. when you use - found evidence that ......... it has to be followed by "suggests" ...... found evidence that suggests ....

evidence of is correct idiom. But it is not correctly used here.

evidence of X, X= describes the evidence
evidence that X, X= to conclude

I didn't notice the plural part of the rest of the sentence. I change my opinion from D to B. What is the OA?

The question is from GMATPrep, it's correct and the OA is "C".

If you search in internet, you will see that even MGMAT instructors find this question weird. I'm not satisfyed with their explanation and don't have anything better. Let's pm our instructors

It has been a long time since folks discussed such a wonderful question last time, guys. Let me remind you how tricky SC can be

Scientists have found new evidence of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as heartburn—by monitoring what’s going on within their bodies.

A. of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as
B. of people initially registering emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing
C. that people initially register emotions such as sadness or anger in much the same way as they experiencing
D. that a person initially registers emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing
E. that a person initially registers emotions like sadness or anger much the same way as

a and b out due to wrong idiom usage, D and E uses that a person, but the last part of the sentence says "thier bodies", which cannot refer to a person. But experiencing used makes me sad though

The two options mentioned above can be used as -

Scientists have found evidence of life on Mars. (evidence has been found of life)
Scientists have found evidence that life exists on Mars. (evidence that indicates)

As far as our question of the thread goes, "by monitoring what’s going on within their bodies" -

By monitoring what's going on within the body, they found something that itself is the evidence of similarity {Hence, evidence of.}

or

By monitoring what's going on within the body, they found something that helped them to draw a conclusion that the people register emotions and heart burns in the same manner. {evidence that}

In the presence of the uncertainty, I want to know if the "registering" in option C is small enough error to disregard.

D & E are wrong because the pronoun "their" at the end of the sentence needs the plural subject "people" instead of "person"

Hard to tell whether "like" or "such as" should be used, but I would lean towards using "such as." I wanted to go with C, but it seems like "they experiencing" is not right. I would probably choose B, but I'm not too sure.

As far as GMAT is concerned - like is incorrect. Use such as.

I just found this from MGMAT forum which changes choice C slightly and now it looks correct to me:

the right version of this question is:

Scientists have found new evidence of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as heartburn--by monitoring what's going on within their bodies.

(A) of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as
(B) of people initially registering emotions such as sadness or anger much the same as experiencing
(C) that people initially register emotions such as sadness or anger in much the same way as they experience
(D) that a person initially registers emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing
(E) that a person initially registers emotions like sadness or anger much the same as

"they experiencing" is now "they experience" which is much better IMO

I would choose C with this version of the question.
