With diamonds, as with all gems, one should ask for a written description of one’s purchase; the description may prove useful later if you have reason to believe the jeweler misled you.

(A) one should ask for a written description of one’s purchase
(B) you should ask for a written description of your purchase
(C) a written discretion of your purchase is what one should ask for
(D) a written description of one’s purchase is what should be asked for
(E) a written description of your purchase is what should be asked for

(A) one should ask for a written description of one’s purchase
(B) you should ask for a written description of your purchase
(C) a written discretion of your purchase is what one should ask for
(D) a written description of one’s purchase is what should be asked for
(E) a written description of your purchase is what should be asked for

From the second sentence, we can notice that the subject of the first sentence should be "you". Thus, (A), (C), and (D) are incorrect.

(E) does not specify who asks for the description.

My guess is (B).

Only A and B can be considered and as Gamjatang, I choose B for the same reasons.

B here too. "you" and "one" can't be interchanged in GMAT SC's.

B because the second half of the sentence uses "you"
