Unlike the original National Museum of Science and Technology in Italy, where the models are encased in glass or operated only by staff members, the Virtual Leonardo Project, an online version of the museum, encourages visitors to “touch” each exhibit, which thereby activates the animated functions of the piece.

A. exhibit, which thereby activates
B. exhibit, in turn an activation of
C. exhibit, and it will activate
D. exhibit and thereby activate
E. exhibit which, as a result, activates

This is an interesting question. I dont understand why the Answer is the OA. It does not make logical sense. Please try and see if you can figure it out. Thanks in Advance.

The key to this question is to understand the logic. The project encourages visitors to touch the exhibit and as a result of the touch the animated functions get activated.

A: exhibit is not activating the function
B - nonsensical
c: 'it' is not clear
d: correct, the users are encouraged to touch and thereby activate the functions
e: which is not used in proper GMAT way: which vs that

To late for this discussion :)

However, just one query ,my interpretation of question stem is

visitors to “touch” each exhibit, which thereby activates the animated functions of the piece.


Encourage visitors to TOUCH each exhibit,WHICH thereby activates

A TOUCH WHICH THEREBY ACTIVATES .

What is wrong with above usage .

Plz Advice !!!

The "which" in this context tends to refer to exhibit, meaning that each exhibit activates...
The intended meaning is the touch that activates animated function.
This is very subtle usage of which.

here each option A B C and E intends that the exibit activates something..... INSTEAD is the touch that exibits AND then activates something (as a result)

E would be correct the only problem is, one gain in which, that refers to exibit instead of touch

Only D says or suggests this meaning and for this reason is correct

the visitors touch and activate (1)

this is logic meaning

in A, the exhibit activate (2)

is not logic in the contexe of this sentence. if (2) stands alone, (2) can be correct. but if two choices stand together, one of them is considered the intended meaning.
