In E, Home wrongly modified festivals. So it should be festivals that featured the preparation of ceremonial foods.

Hi Experts,

Can Someone explain below issue:

D) In her home, Aho, a Kiowa matriarch, held festivals that featured

here can that refers to plural festivals?

then can that refers to variations in below sentence??

Aging is a property of all animals that reach a fixed size at maturity, and the variations in life spans among different species are far greater than that among individuals from the same species.

I have doubt on E, why 'that' modifies but not festivals. Because I read a rule 'that' modifies nearest grammatically and logically eligible word. But this questions seems to be an exception. Please explain....

This is not an exception but an illustration of an important rule used frequently in GMAT, the modifier touch rule.

As per modifier touch rule, a modifier should in general refer to the noun it touches. In option E "that" wrongly refers to "home". In option D "that" correctly refers to "festivals". Therefore D is better than E.
