Good question. Got it wrong Chose C blindly, despite of "and he" looking odd.
Agree with A and love the below explanation.

learner wrote:
This Q requires knowledge in ||ism, comma splice and participle modifier

A) attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis and developing
- correct 'receiving... and developing ...' acts as participle phrase for the main clause, 'attended the swiss ...'

B) attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis and developed

here attended , receiving and developed are not ||.

If I were to correct this option it would have read either

attended the swiss ..., received ... and developed - making the sentence ||

or

attended ... ;receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis, he developed... - This case,puntuated with a comma , has 'receiving in-depth training' as participle modifier

C) attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, received in-depth training in quantitative analysis, and he developed - note the comman before and .

The correct form for this option is either

attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, received in-depth training in quantitative analysis and developed

or

attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich and received in-depth training, and he developed.. - in this case 'and he developed' is a conjunctive clause preceded by a comma, avoiding a comman splice .

D) attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, received in-depth training in quantitative analysis, developing - not ||

The correct form would have been

attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich and received in-depth training in quantitative analysis, developing... - in this case 'developing..' acts as a participle phrase . I am not sure whether this would become a dangling modifier.

E) attending the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis, and developing

- there is no verb and the sentence structure is seriously flawed in this option

The sentence represents superficial || but for me looks weired.
1. AE attended while he was receiving training....but should be like
He received such training ...while attending that School.
similarly
developed ..foundation while attending the school
not
He attended the school ....developing foundation.

After moving to Switzerland in the 1890’s, Albert Einstein attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis and developing[b][/b] a foundation for his future work in mathematical physics.

(A) attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis and developing
Recieving ..... and developing ...... are the actions/results/consequences Albert's attended the class...thus Recieving...and developing should be II to each other...correct
(B) attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis and developed
(C) attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, ]received[] in-depth training in quantitative analysis, and [b]he developed[/b] he is not required(independent clause)
(D) attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, received in-depth training in quantitative analysis, developing
(E) attending the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis, and developing IS he still attending?thus incorrect

I see a lot of complicated explanations involving the use of grammatical terms. While most of these explanations are accurate , i believe that when we prioritize grammar over
the meaning, we may miss the sky for the stars. We have 3 verbs in the sentence.If we recognize the correct sequence of the actions, then the keys to the kingdom will be ours.

The 3 verbs in the sentence are

- Attend
- Develop

a) We need to understand is the sequence of EACH OF these verbs. The actions which are parallel need to be in same tense.
b) "AND" is usually a parallelism marker. The word "AND" can either indicate a set of events that happen AT THE SAME TIME, or indicate a SEQUENCE of events that happen one after the other.
c) Remember for a list of 3 or more items that are described using the word "AND", GMAT always uses a ,comma to separate the last item.
E.g: red, blue ,and green.
E.g : John, jane, jacob ,and Chris

A detour :-
Look at these examples. Full Disclosure : These examples are based on a couple of examples that i have seen Ron Purewal use. Somehow, the act of visualizing someone eating, burping and slurping burns these examples into one's memory and hence are suited best to drive home the basic principles.

John ate the pizza, slurping loudly and burping regularly - IMPLIES THAT JOHN ATE THE PIZZA AND DURING THE PROCESS OF EATING, HE MADE SLURPING AND BURPING SOUNDS.
John ate the pizza, slurped loudly and ,burped regularly - IMPLIES THAT JOHN ATE THE PIZZA FIRST AND THEN AFTER EATING , HE MADE SLURPING SOUNDS (second) AND AFTER HE MADE SLURPING SOUNDS, HE MADE BURPING SOUNDS(third).
John ate the pizza, slurping loudly and burped regularly- IMPLIES THAT JOHN ATE THE PIZZA AND DURING THE PROCESS OF EATING, HE MADE SLURPING SOUNDS and AFTER HE FINISHED EATING(and slurping), he MADE BURPING SOUNDS.

Back to the question :-
MEANING OF THE GIVEN SENTENCE :
Albert Einstein attended some college and during his period of attendance, he received training and developed something. The main verb of the sentence is is "Attended" and the other terms "Receive" and "develop" are VERB-ing modifiers that describe the how Albert Einstein attended college.

(A) attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis, and developing

Let's look at a few examples. Full Disclosure : These examples are based on a couple of examples that i have seen Ron Purewal (MGMAT fame) use. Somehow, examples that require one to visualize someone else eating, burping and slurping turn out to be the ones that kinda burn concepts into our memory .

John ate the pizza, slurping loudly and burping regularly - IMPLIES THAT JOHN ATE THE PIZZA AND WHILE EATING, JOHN MADE SLURPING AND BURPING SOUNDS.
John ate the pizza, slurped loudly and ,burped regularly - IMPLIES THAT JOHN FINISHED EATING THE PIZZA FIRST AND THEN AFTER EATING , HE MADE SLURPING SOUNDS (second) AND AFTER HE MADE SLURPING SOUNDS, HE MADE BURPING SOUNDS(third).
John ate the pizza, slurping loudly and burped regularly- IMPLIES THAT JOHN ATE THE PIZZA AND WHILE EATING THE PIZZA, HE MADE SLURPING SOUNDS and AFTER HE FINISHED EATING(and slurping), he MADE BURPING SOUNDS.

Typically -
[*]A ,COMMA VERB-ing modifier (E.g : burping and slurping in the above examples) tends to describe the main verb in the preceding clause.
[*]A VERB - ING-modifier WITHOUT A COMMA is attached to the preceding noun.

A couple of Examples :-
[*]John watched Sam running around a tree. (Meaning - Sam was running around a tree and John saw him. Note the absence of a COMMA)
[*]John watched Sam,using a pair of binoculars.(Meaning - John used a pair of binoculars to watch Same)

Back to the question :-
MEANING OF THE GIVEN SENTENCE :
Albert Einstein attended some college and during his period of attendance, he received training and developed something. The main verb of the sentence is is "Attended" and the other terms "Receive" and "develop" are VERB-ing modifiers that describe the how Albert Einstein attended college.

A lot of the approaches for this question revolved about elimating the wrong answer choice-which is fine. What I didn't get was how a noun modifier could be so far away from the noun it modifies. It seems as if receiving is modifying school (or Zurich?) rather than Albert Einstein. To me that is incorrect

Could someone explain how we are to know that it modifies Albert Einstein grammatically?

Hi manimgoindowndown,

Comma followed by an -ing word generally does not modify the noun right before the comma. i.e. , a "comma -ing" set-up is not a traditional noun modifier; it is an adverbial modifier (modifying things other than nouns).

The phrase "receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis and developing..." is not a noun modifier but and adverbial or ing-modifier which is modifying the complete clause "Albert Einstein attended the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich"

Anything that modifies a noun should have the effect of an adjective.

Tired from cleaning the whole apartment, John took a nap. --> the phrase "Tired from cleaning the whole apartment" is modifying the noun John.

Using the mop, John cleaned the apartment --> here "using the mop" is adverbial modifier which modifies the whole clause, whose subject is John.

Hope that helps,

Vercules

(E) attending the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, receiving in-depth training in quantitative analysis, and developing

EXPLAIN the correct answer as well as why other options are wrong..

Option A: Einstein attended the ....in Zurich, (subordinate phrase starts) receiving A and developing B (subordinate phrase ends). This is correct usage.
Option B: Einstein attended the ....in Zurich, (subordinate phrase starts) receiving A and developed B (subordinate phrase ends). If there was a comma after "receiving A", then this statement would have been correct. Because then A would act as a subordinate phrase and B would be a continuation of the original sentence and should be in simple past.
Option C: The pronoun "he" is not needed.
Option D: "developing" is wrong. It should be "and developed".
Option E: This is entirely wrong. Continuous form should be complemented with simple past.

Dealing with list of actions Einstein performed, and hence all the 3 must be parallel. In the non underline portion of the sentence, we have "Moving", hence the correct usage of the other 3 verbs must be in -ing form.

IMO it is A.
