We are working on a new set of Verbal Tests for GMAT Club. Several members have responded to our "Help Wanted Ad" and submitted their questions. I am posting the first batch and would love to hear your feedback about the questions. I would also like to know your opinion about how close this question is to the Real GMAT (or Official Guide if you have not taken the GMAT yet) on a 1-5 scale where
1 is not close at all
2 is not close
3 is average/undecided
4 is close
5 is exact match

I will post the OA and Explanation in 1-3 days, depending on how many takers we get. Your feedback will help significantly and very much appreciated!

Here is the OA and Explanation: Now that the OA and explanation are posted, can you rate this question in terms of difficulty?
Let's keep the 1-5 scale with 1 being easy and 5 hard.

Answer: A

Relative pronoun ‘which’ and ‘that’ refer to the noun or noun phrase that comes exactly before them. It is the treaty that forbids the testing of nuclear weapons.
A – This is the correct answer.
B – This uses the participial form to create a run-on modifier with the latter half of the sentence.
C – It is the treaty that forbids the testing of nuclear weapons and hence the relative pronoun should relate to treaty, not the countries.
D – As above
E – As above

If A is a right answer, we have non-essential part with "which" that we can omit without loses. At the same time, without "which....explosions" part, "including" part has no sense". So, "had signed ... CTBT...including ...testing" or "forbids...including...." is ambiguity.
