Hi...
you have missed out on choice E

anyways point one should note..

1) that vs which
here we dont want to restrict cherries, as all cherries contain vitamins etc..
so which, a non-restrictive relative pronoun that introduces non-restrictive clause, is correct here

eliminate A

2) considered vs considered to be
considered is correct idiom
B and D out

3) parallelism
Only C is left. lets see how it maintains parallelism
The cherry, which contains beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, iron and fiber, is considered one of the most nutritional fruits and helps relieve the pain of arthritis, reduce risk factors for heart disease and diabetes, prevent memory loss and delay the ageing process.
the BLUE colored are parallel and RED colored too..
the RED colored are supposed to be preceded by HELPS, but is omitted to make sentence more concise..
The cherry, which contains beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, iron and fiber, is considered one of the most nutritional fruits and helps relieve the pain of arthritis, helps reduce risk factors for heart disease and diabetes, helps prevent memory loss and helps delay the ageing process.

ans C

Hi....
A and E restrict the cherries by using THAT..
For example..
The moon, which is 27% the size of earth, is approximately 4 lac km away from earth..
So there is one moon and we are talking about it..

The moon that is 27% the size of earth is approximately 4 lac km away from earth..
So now there may be many moons but we are talking of the one that is 27% of earth's size..

Hope you understand why A and Evare out

Hi chetan2u,

Nice example. You cleared the difference between "that" and "which" in a lucid way. Cheers!!

My understanding of the meaning of the sentence is that, some particular cherries with all the vitamins listed are considered on of the most nutritional fruits... Option C distorts this meaning... The OA says 'The Cherry',which...
I feel the use of the article 'the' before cherry is very wrong, just like saying
'The mango' is totally wrong if you are not talking about a particular kind of mango.
For me Option A is just fine.

Please, can an expert help out here.

Hi Kem12,

Use of article "the" is ok here as we are talking about the particular effects of Cherry not of another fruit. So i think of the is fine.
A can not be the answer as that is used to limit the scope of the noun and it signifies some particular kind of Cherry. We need which here as we are not discussing some particular kind of Cherry.
