The relative pronoun 'that' refers to C-blast and so we need a singular verb.. (promotes, soothes, comes, gives)
A, B and E out for this reason.. D is wrong for the use of 'giving'.. That takes us to the answer C!!

The relative pronoun 'that' refers to C-blast ?

Oh! isn't it refers to micro-nutrients?
Usually relative pronoun refers back to previous noun !

as per OE, actually 'that' is not modifying c-blast but it is modifying 'blend'..
e.g. Blend of x,y and z that blah blah blah...
I too have difficulty in finding what actually 'that' modifies. Experts please throw sum light on it.

5 micronutrients that promote a healthy metabolism, soothes the stomach, comes packaged in a high-tech bottle, and give you a patented C-Blast of chemical-free energy.


Concept tested : parallelism + SV agreement
Subject is C-Blast -> Singular so it comes.

parallelism angle : C-Blast comes packaged packaged in a high-tech bottle, and gives you a patented C-Blast of chemical-free energy.

Here remove the prepositional phrase 'of ...... ' that will points to the subject of the sentence 'a hearty blend' which is singular hence takes a singular verb --- promotes. Also, make the list of the items parallel.

I think official Answer is also debatable. Please check the list " That promotes a healthy metabolism, soothes the stomach, comes packaged in a high tech bottles and gives you a patented C blast of chemical free energy"
----- I think this should be the correct list as all the properties are not the same " That promotes a healthy metabolism and soothes the stomach, and packaged in a high tech bottles and gives you a patented C blast of chemical free energy.

Choice could be least-error sentence but it doesn't make the complete sentence error free.
That refers to Micro-nutrients because it is closest noun to it.

Does the GMAT check least error containing sentence or complete correct sentence?

I understand that underlined part is correct only in option C.

Dear gvij2017

Imho,

C-Blast is "a hearty blend" of powerful vitamins, minerals, and immunity-boosting micronutrients that promotes a healthy metabolism, soothes the stomach, comes packaged in a high-tech bottle, and gives you a patented C-Blast of chemical-free energy.


I think that refers to a hearty blend because we have ignore some thing that comes after a preposition because its just an additional information to the noun.
Hope it helps

and please correct me if i am wrong.
