Good question i went with the meaning of the sentence.

Eliminated B, D and E since a marketing gimmick needs to be evident in the carnival. A and C left - C seemed a better option than A - Primilary because of " , which" and ",are wave of" context of, are without a noun didn't make sense!

Kudos are always welcome :)

A - Incorrect:

The singular subject a gimmick does not agree with the plural auxiliary verb are and with the plurality of the second subject waves.

B - Incorrect:

The relative pronoun that relates to the preceding noun gimmick, and thus the plural verb attract does not agree in number with the singular noun gimmick.

C - Correct:

The singular subjects a gimmick and a wave agree with the singular verb is. The relative pronoun who relates logically to jugglers.

D - Incorrect:

The problem in this option is the phrase Marketing gimmicky new waves... would mean the performers are marketing waves of street artists, which makes no sense.

E - Incorrect:

The problem is that the singular A wave, which is conceived of as one entity, should not take the plural verb are. Also the use of the phrase at the crossroads twice, while grammatically OK, is stylistically clunky. Check out chapter 8 for more information on the GMAT’s preferred style of writing.


Hope that helps.

Are you KUDOing me? :lol:
