Please find below my take on the ques -

the two || actions are - create and foil
a standardized way of distributing songs and full-length recordings on the Internet that
"that" refers to standardized way since the underlined portion is a prepositional phrase. So the sentence is correct as is.

B. and foiling
C. and foils
D. while they will protect --> no contrast is required here.
E. and foiling

Hi rekhabishop, taking it up on behalf of daagh Sir.

that exhibits quite flexibility in terms of what it can modify.

In this case, that will modify a standardized way.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses modification issue of that, its application and examples in significant detail. If someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section.

I am not quite convinced. It looks ambiguous to me. How can we be certain in such cases? Regarding "that" or "they" or "this" or "it".

Hi rekhabishop, this usage of that (as a relative pronoun) is used extensively by GMAT.

In fact, there are numerous such usages of that in officially correct answer choices, and it is important for test-takes to understand this usage.

Following are few examples of officially correct sentences:

Marconi conceived of the radio as a tool for private conversation that could substitute for the telephone; instead, it has become precisely the opposite, a tool for communicating with a large, public audience.

- that is modifying tool in the above sentence.

Out of America's fascination with all things antique has grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that is bringing back the chaise lounge, the overstuffed sofa, and the claw-footed bathtub.

- that is modifying market in the above sentence.

Under a provision of the Constitution that has never been applied, Congress is required to call a convention to consider possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do so by the legislatures of two-thirds of the states.

- that is modifying provision in the above sentence.
