Straight A. We need "anyone" here. "disposing of" is idiomatic. "disposing of or servicing" is parallel.

(E) someone who disposes or repairs


1. "those" cannot be the main subject of the sentence, B out
2. "disposing" and "services" can not be parallel. C out
3. "the disposal or repair of" cannot capture the chlorofluorocarbons", D out
4. the logic wrong, E out

A wins the game

Agree with A.

But i have a question in the subject verb agreement here.
"must capture" doesn't agree with the singular subject.(anyOne). Is it like we should use plural verb when we use "must", "should".

please clarify?

A also.

I only wanted to modify to anyone who xxxx or yyyyy; but the choice is not available. Hence, A.

must works with any singular or plural.

Agree with others - A is the best.

B is incorrect because the correct idiom is dispose of. It sounds strange to say that someone will dispose something.

Did you rule out D and E seeing repairs? Original sentence is not talking of repairs. I feel E also meets all criteria, its just that it talks abt repairs....disposes and repairs are parallel in E

(A) anyone disposing of or servicing
(B) those who dispose or service
(C) anyone disposing of or who services
(D) the disposal or repair of
(E) someone who disposes or repairs


B- those who cannot start a sentence
C- not ||
D wrong because of the usage
E - should be anyone.

A wins...

Why can't 'those' be the subject of the sentence like in option B?

"Those" is usually a pronoun on the GMAT (see the section on pronouns in our Topic of the Week on "that" -- "those" is just a plural demonstrative pronoun), and in this case, it has no referent.

To be fair, I'm not 100% sure that you couldn't use "those" by itself on the GMAT, but I've never seen it used that way in an official question. And I don't think that this one is an official question, so you should take it with a huge grain of salt. (Friendly reminder: please please include your sources whenever you post new questions on the verbal forum!)

And there are other problems with (B) anyway, as others have mentioned. But I don't recommend wasting much time on this question, unless somebody can confirm the source.

Thank you for your reply GMATNinja

I have been practising questions from non -official sources and some are not very clear and making me more confused.
Should I just stick to Official guide 2017 and verbal review 2016?

Will it be of any help to solve such questions from other sources?
I am targeting 680 or so, will that be achievable by just using OG? Please help.

Option B would be better if it was:

Well, you've probably heard me say over and over that nothing will EVER be as good as official GMAT questions, as discussed in our beginner's guides to RC, CR, and SC. Whenever possible, stick with the official stuff -- the non-official questions will often leave room for debate in ways that would NEVER happen in official questions.

In terms of your score goals, though, everybody is different. Some people can roll out of bed, barely study anything at all, and get a 750. Some people can do every single official GMAT question and hundreds of LSAT questions, and still struggle to get a 650. Life is unfair. But official = good. :)

I hope this helps!
