Hi Experts,

I don't understand how to attack this question. Nothing comes to my mind. I repeat it twice thrice but I could't get over it
Please explain me this question and the basic way to move forward when I am pathless.

OFFICIAL EXPLANATION : GMAT FREE

Creating a filter: In this question, the phrase "like it is suggestive" is redundant, or maybe nonsensical. Is it actually suggestive, or is it merely like it is suggestive?

Applying the filter: Choice (B) has a similar problem because "as if" is used when something is contrary to fact and that's not the meaning here. For example, it would make sense to say the candidate was acting "as if he were going to run for reelection," if, in fact, he wasn't. Choice (D) is wrong because the preposition "of" cannot introduce a clause, only a noun. Choice (E) has the same problem as (D) and also changes the meaning of the sentence, since a "suggestion" is a recommendation. Choice (C) works nicely because it is succinct and introduces the clause (about what is being suggested) properly with the word "that." The correct answer is (C).
