Can someone pls explain, how 'which' is referring to 'falling employment' rather than 'ivestment'. Accoring to MGMAT which always refers to the noun next to it. So I din't even bother looking at the choises A,B and C.
Thanks.


PS, U2, GMAT - Any comments on this particular aspect of the question?

C. falling employment rates triggered by a drop in investment, which cause cutbacks in consumer spending, starting a cycle of layoffs that lead to even lower employment rates.



Guys can you all please help me understand this one? How is the "which" in choice C referring to "falling employment rates" and not "investment" instead?

Quote:
An economic recession can result from a lowering of employment rates triggered by a drop in investment, which causes people to cut consumer spending and starts a cycle of layoffs leading back to even lower employment rates.


In choice A structured similarly, it was mentioned that which refers to "drop in investmement" Why does "which" refer to drop in investment in A but to falling employment rates in C? Is it governed by the verb that immediately follows which, that in C is singular ("Cause") and in A is plural ("Causes"). Would it be right in such cases to take cue from the Verb to decide what the relative pronoun is referring to?

I understand that C is the correct answer, but I do not understand that "starting" refers to "falling employment rates" or "economic recession"???


Thanks
