My Choice is E

A. satellites that is a part of 15 years effort of subjecting the interactions of Earthâ€™s atmosphere, oceans, and land surfaces

B. satellites, which is a part of a 15-year effort to subject how Earthâ€™s atmosphere, oceans, and land surfaces interact

C. satellites, part of 15 years effort of subjecting how Earthâ€™s atmosphere, oceans, and land surfaces are interacting
Pronoun needed for the restrictive clause to manitain continuity in the sentence

D. satellites that are part of an effort for 15 years that has subjected the interactions of Earthâ€™s atmosphere, oceans, and land surfaces

Singular Plural verb Noun agreement

Satellites are Plural

that refers to Satellite

We are down to D and E

an effort for is idiomatic.

Excuse me,

I would like to ask why do you think for sure that the relative pronoun "which" refers to "satellites" rather than to "one".

I mean on the basis of the subject-verb agreement , "which" might refer to "one"?

chunjuwu, "that" and "which" always modify the word to what the follow. However, beyond singularity and plurality, there is one more driving point here i.e. parallelism
See, how "B" and "E" satisfy parallel structure with non-underlined part:

(B) satellites, which is a part of a 15-year effort to subject how Earthâ€™s atmosphere, oceans, and land surfaces interact to detailed scrutiny from space

(E) satellites that are part of a 15-year effort to subject the interactions of Earthâ€™s atmosphere, ocean, and land surfaces to detailed scrutiny from space

Choice "B" mistakenly uses singular "is" for "which" that refers to satellites. So choice "E" should be correct answer.

sorry, Dharmin

I remember the relative pronoun can modify any preceding noun and

doesn't necessarily modify the nearest preceding noun; in fact GMAT always does so. Right?

So, I originally supposed that the relative clause can modify the "one".

That means "AM-1 is a part of a 15-year effort ........ "

any wrong?

thank you.

It's E.

Twenty-two feet long and 10 feet in diameter, the AM-1 is one of the many new satellites that are part of a 15-year effort to subject the interactions of Earthâ€™s atmosphere, ocean, and land surfaces to detailed scrutiny from space.

Here 'that' is used to modify 'satellites'.
As per my knowledge goes, we should have used "which" if we had to emphasize on "one of the".
