Basic grammar question - Relative Pronoun & Compound Sentence  [#permalink]

Hello Guys.

I stepped on this sentence in MGMAT SC.

Mary buys cookies made with the artificial sweetener SugarFree, which tastes as sweet as the corn syrup that her brother loves but which has fewer calories than does an equivalent amount of corn syrup.

My question: Is it possible to remove the second "which" from the sentence and still be grammatically correct. Like below

Mary buys cookies made with the artificial sweetener SugarFree, which tastes as sweet as the corn syrup that her brother loves but has fewer calories than does an equivalent amount of corn syrup.

Or the second which is required in this sentence

Hi AtomChyp,

Check chapter 5 Paralleslim (MGMAT 6th edition). The parallelism marker is "X but Y" that is an open marker. To avoid ambiguity, the same signal word is used to remove ambiguity about where the parallelism begins:

WHICH tastes BUT WHICH has

Hope this helps!
