In my personal opinion i do not believe thta princeton is the top for GMAT, however I try this one

The subject here is building so as cold the verb is singular: A B and E are out of the game in 5 seconds

C and E C wins because in E they are supplied by varying temperatures of outside air is passive (avoid it as much as possible albeit is not completely wrong passive voice) and also doesn't make sense on the meaning

C in 20 seconds

Its a replica of OG-12 Q no 95. Its a SV agreement problem. Building agrees with verb is. And in choice E the meaning is distorted.
No doubt the correct choice is C.

the resulting building(singular), with ............................. , are(plural verb) is wrong construction. So this eliminates A, B, D

in E, they are supplied by varying temperatures of outside air is awkward.
C sounds better than all other choices. Hence IMO, C!

An uncommon method of home building relies on the construction of extremely thick walls to reduce the energy needs due to heating and cooling; the resulting building, with internal spaces that maintain a constant temperature although the outside air that flows through them varies in temperature, are known as "earth ships."

A. internal spaces that maintain a constant temperature although the outside air that flows through them varies in temperature, are known as "earth ships." building is singular, is should be used in place of are.
B. internal spaces that maintain a constant temperature although they are supplied by varying temperatures of outside air, are known as "earth ships."
C. internal spaces that maintain a constant temperature although the outside air that flows through them varies in temperature, is known as an "earth ship." Correct Answer
D. constant temperature internal spaces although the outside air that flows through them varies in temperature, are known as "earth ships."
E. internal spaces that maintain a constant temperature although they are supplied by varying temperatures of outside air, is known as an "earth ship."
Here Although they are start a new clause in which "they" is subject and "are supplied" is verb. This construction to join two clauses is wrong. Two clauses either joined by semicolon or comma + FANBOYS

Thanks

Hi, I believe E is incorrect because "internal spaces (they) are supplied by varying temperatures of outside air" is a very round about way to say the temperature that flows through them varies. C states this perfectly "the outside air that flows through them varies in temperature"
