Melatonin is a kind of light-sensitive hormone, so A, B, C out
D, "are indicating" not necessary

E remains

In E, new studies is not a subject to have a verb; it is just the object of the preposition despite ; A pronoun can refer to an object also

Regarding answer E, I fail to understand how to choose despite instead of although and two (that)s seems awkard.
Can any of the experts throw some light on this?

Thanks.

let's understand the meaning of the sentence & split it into clauses:
(1)Although in some women, new studies indicate that
(2-subordinate clause - provides additional information on what new studies indicate) abnormally low levels of the light-sensitive hormone melatonin in them
may contribute to premenstrual depression,
(3) doctors are hesitant to recommend light therapy until additional studies have been completed.

New studies indicate that in some women (now let's see what new studies indicate)
abnormally low levels of melatonin may contribute to premenstrual depression.
melatonin is a light-sensitive hormone.
Nevertheless, even after taking into consideration the above mentioned, doctors are hesitant to recommend light therapy.
The sentence is structured in such a way, that a contrast is needed.

Error analysis:
A has modifier and structure errors


A) Although in some women, new studies indicate that abnormally low levels of the light-sensitive hormone melatonin in them
modifier error

B) Although new studies indicate that levels of the abnormally low light-sensitive hormone melatonin in some women
changes the meaning

C) Although new studies in some women indicate that abnormally low levels of the light-sensitive hormone melatonin
construction error..very awkward...

D) Despite the fact that new studies are indicating abnormally low levels of melatonin, a light-sensitive hormone in some women that
the contrast is not clear.
construction error, missing verb...

E) Despite new studies that indicate that in some women, abnormally low levels of melatonin, a light-sensitive hormone,
looks good.

I am stuck between C and E , the way i thought is E is becoming a run on because in E the sentence starts with Despite xxx, Clause , Clause

whereas in C Althoughxxxxx, Clause

the construction of C looked much better than that of E

abhimahna , Isn't "THAT" in option E kind of misleading? I sensed a pronoun error, but then no other option sounds better. :(

Hi NicoleJaneway ,

I don't think there is any issue with the comma placement.

We are saying Although new studies indicate something, doctors are hesitant to something.

Hence, there is nothing wrong in comma placement.

B seems grammatically correct but changes slight meaning..
Question says "low levels of the light-sensitive hormone " while option B says " low light-sensitive hormone"

Option E seems bit weird with use of "that" but grammatically and meaning wise ,it's perfect. and Hence OA E.

As discussed above, options A,B,C can be dropped because of lack of comma in "the light-sensitive hormone (,) melatonin".

Does GMAT really use this issue?

IMO , there are other errors in A,B,c
A--Them is ambiguous .
B-placement of "abnormally" is not correct.
C-"new studies in some women " is not correct ..one can't do study in a women ...

Agree with you about other mistakes.

But if we assume, there are no other mistakes, what about comma?

E) Despite new studies that indicate that in some women, abnormally low levels of light-sensitive hormone melatonin - will it be right answer?
