As a citizen of any country, one should acknowledge that one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise their freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms the foundation of a democratic society.

POE:
Eliminate (A) - 'their'; the subject is singular here.
Eliminate (D) - 'he'; no gender is specific here.
Eliminate (B) - 'being' is redundant on GMAT
Eliminate (E) - 'form'; the subject is singular, so, we need a singular verb.


A. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise their freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms

B. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise one's freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as not being at all influential, forms

C. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise the freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms -CORRECT

D. he is an integral part of a larger community and exercise his freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms

E. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise one's freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, form

As a citizen of any country, one should acknowledge that one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise their freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms the foundation of a democratic society.

Subject Verb Pair seems okay
Tense used correctly, Modifier correctly modifies " vote", Parallelism & Comparison are appropriate.
Only pronoun error is identified.
lets check each and every option for more clarification.

A. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise their freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms

- "their " is used inappropriately

- Incorrect

B. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise one's freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as not being at all influential, forms

1. usage of " being" is incorrect.
2. "exercise one's " not parallel

- Incorrect


C. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise the freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms

1. remove the previous pronoun error

- Correct

D. he is an integral part of a larger community and exercise his freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms

- "he" is incorrectly used. In the whole sentence , author is talking about all individual so "he" is inappropriate here

- Incorrect


E. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise one's freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, form

1. "exercise one's " not parallel
2. "forms" is required

- Incorrect

IMO C,


A. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise their freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms
Pronoun error - 'their' is incorrect pronoun for 'one'. Hence eliminate.

B. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise one's freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as not being at all influential, forms
'being' makes it easy to eliminate

C. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise the freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms
Correct answer

D. he is an integral part of a larger community and exercise his freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms
Contextual error - 'One' is changed to 'he' which makes it gender specific. Hence eliminate


E. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise one's freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, form
SV Agreement error - The singular subject 'freedom to vote' does not agree with the plural verb 'form'. Hence eliminate.

C. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise the freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as influential, forms--- The correct choice

D. he is an integral part of a larger community and exercise his freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms --- “one and he?? “ incongruous

This sentence is testing two things :Sub-verb agreement and pronoun usage. The statement needs to maintain consistency with the third person singular pronoun - 'one,' used in first half of the statement.

Eliminate (A) - 'their'
Eliminate (B) - 'not being at all influential' wordy and awkward construction
Eliminate (D) - 'he' (the first half of the sentence uses 'ones' so gender not required)
Eliminate (E) - 'form'; the subject is singular, so, we need a singular verb.

A. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise their freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms - "their" in between the two commas does not match with the singular subject of "one"

B. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise one's freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as not being at all influential, forms - "not being at all influential" is wordy

C. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise the freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms - fixes the SVA problem discussed earlier, and "forms" is also in line with the singular subject "one". Hold on this and see if you find a better option

D. he is an integral part of a larger community and exercise his freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, forms specifying the gender by "he" is not the best way

E. one is an integral part of a larger community and exercise one's freedom to vote, which, often misunderstood and regarded as uninfluential, form "form" does not match the singular subject "one"
