114: C
to bathe in X, Y, or Z.
Answer choice E, though concise, lacks modifiers.

115: C
The medical test fails to detect a condition. Therefore limits the answer choices to A and C. The phrase 'there is' in GMAT is incorrect. That leaves us with C.

Ancient Romans found it therapeutic to bathe in cold milk, in strawberries that had been crushed, or in bathtubs filled with black caviar .

Infinitive form of verb is better !!

(A) to bathe in cold milk, in strawberries that had been crushed, or in bathtubs filled with black caviar => ~||
(C) to bathe in cold milk, crushed strawberries, or black caviar
(E) to bathe in milk , strawberries, or caviar => chnages meaning not any caviar but black caviar !!

Any medical test will sometimes fail to detect a condition when it is present and indicate that there is one when it is not.

Fails to detect "when" or "condition" B/D r out !!

(A) a condition when it is present and indicate that there is one => "it" what test or condition !! wordy
(C) a condition when it is present and indicate that it is present
(E) the presence of a condition when it is there and indicate its presence => wordy

My Answer : C ( Best Fit )
