Is there anything wrong with the transcription? There is a semi-colon, but there is no IC after that in all the five choices. Also, none of the 'which' choices has a comma preceding it. Looks like an upstart job.

Is this from MGMAT?

Probably, if we change the semicolon into a colon, we may choose A.

Dear Sir,

There is a mistake i made while uploading the question. I missed changing the punctuation in the answer choices.
Edited the same now.

Note here that this options SEEMS parallel but the last sentence gives it away as being incorrect. "but lose all data" is wrong grammatically.


This question isn't so much about when to use "that" or "which", instead, it requires good comprehension skills to be able to see that parallelism can be met without only looking at black and white, rote memorized parallel grammar rules. The GMAT tests test takers in that it will make questions difficult by making it hard to just use rules. A little comprehension goes a long way. So it's important to up your reading of high quality articles during your study sessions (Economist, New Yorker etc). Option C is the only clear parallel and correct answer choice.

C.) A personal computer contains two principal types of memory: ROM(Read Only Memory) which cannot be altered, and RAM, usually in the form of DRAM(Dynamic Random Access Memory) which can be changed but loses all data if power stops. The "and RAM" is followed by a comma and a description of said RAM, do not let that deter you into thinking it MUST be parallel too. What follows is "which can be" and this is parallel to the earlier "which cannot be" marker.
