a lowering of employment rates triggered by dropping investment, which causes people to cut consumer spending and starts a cycle of layoffs leading back to even lower employment rates.

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.

falling employment rates that are triggered by a drop in investment, causing cutbacks in consumer spending and starting a cycle of layoffs leading to even lower employment rates.


I know that this question has discussed 'n' number of times then also I have some doubt in this....OA of this question is C....however how come 'which' refers to investment in C, as per my understanding goes it should refere to drop and not investment. what is wrong in E? D is wrong since cycle is singular so it should be leads and not lead.

in C, "which" refers to fallind employment rates" , thus the singular "cause"
in E, "and starting" is wrong. "Starting a cycle of layoffs" should modify "causing cutbacks in consumer spending" so you need a comma
