Could someone please explain why not B

Thanks

B is out because it actually suggests that there may be no proof of electromagnetic fields which distorts the intention on the author.

C is best in my opinion.

(C) that electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances pose any threat to health
(D) that poses any threat to health from electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances
(E) for any health threat posed by electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances

C is correct.

(A) of electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances posing any health threat - WRONG because although + clause, not noun phrase.
(B) of electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances that pose any threat to health - WRONG because "that" modifies "appliances", --> change meaning
(C) that electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances pose any threat to health - CORRECT
(D) that poses any threat to health from electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances - WRONG, change meaning, because "that" modifies exists --> doesn't make sense.
(E) for any health threat posed by electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances - WRONG, although + clause, not noun phrase.

Although + clause ==> A, E are out.
B is out because of wrong modifier "....household appliances that pose........"
D is out because of wrong modifier "no proof yet exist that poses.............."
C is correct.

I just dont know why but I just cant understand this question and differentiate between its ans choices. I have spent an entire evening and I see that everyone out here finds this particular question rather easy.. Could someone please point out all the reasons a particular option will be crossed out.. An elaborate explanation will probably help.. thanks so much!!

I think 'E' is not correct because the verb is "posed" which is in past tense - The verb should be "pose" present tense because the subordinate clause tells the facts.

The reasoning is wrong. "Although+clause" is valid. e.g.,
Although I was sick, I went to school..... correct

Hi - I'm still not following, sorry. Is it that the first clause incorrectly is modifying 'scientific evidence'?

A and E cannot be eliminated because of the reason stated by pqhai. There is no problem with a subordinate clause starting with "although".

Option A implies that there is no proof of electromagnetic force ( i.e. there is no proof that electromagnetic force exists). The part "generated by household appliances posing any health threat" is a modifier of "electromagnetic force ". However the intended meaning is that no proof exists of the fact the EMF poses threat - this meaning is not conveyed in Option A.

Similarly option E implies that there is no proof of health threat ( i.e. there is no proof that health threat exists). The part "posed by electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances" is a modifier of "health threat ".

E) proof for = eliminated
D) proof that poses any threat = eliminated => proof is not posing any threat
B) household appliances that poses => house hold appliances are not posing any threat Eliminated
A) household appliance posing => ing without comma modifying household appliances Eliminated
C is correct=> proof that em fields( generated by hh appliances )pose any threat to health

Quote:
(A) of electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances posing any health threat

Ahh, we have (of)PREP+NOUN+VERB-ing (of + electromagnetic fields + posing) construction, which is mostly considered to be wrong in GMAT(As quoted by Ron Purewal). Because here Action of the sentence is the intended object of the preposition.In that case meaning of the sentence will be distorted. So we can safely eliminate option A
Quote:
(B) of electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances that pose any threat to health

Is household appliances that pose any threat to health? No, so we can eliminate this option.
Quote:
(C) that electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances pose any threat to health

Sounds good and technically correct. So let us hold this option.
Quote:
(D) that poses any threat to health from electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances

Is proof poses threat to health? Eliminate this.
Quote:
(E) for any health threat posed by electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances

Here the idiomatic usage is wrong. Correct idiom is proof of something or proof that+clause. There is no such things as proof for something.
