Hi,

I have come across this question while solving knewton SCs.

Company X has seen sales of its filtration pitcher, which attempts to remove those impurities that are present within tap water, soar ever since the city issued a warning against drinking unfiltered tap water.

(A) which attempts to remove those impurities that are present within tap water
(B) which attempts to remove impurities from tap water
(C) which try to remove tap water's impurities
(D) that try to remove impurities from within tap water
(E) that attempts to remove impurities that are present within tap water

I got confused between B & C . Can somebody please explain which one is correct and why?

if we have a comma, "that" can't be used. D and E are out.
among A/B/C - B is the most concise and best one.

Because in C should be tries in third person: the verb refers to the pitcher that is singular.

See also the possessive its : Company X has seen sales of its filtration pitcher

Hope this helps

(A) which attempts to remove those impurities that are present within tap water
(B) which attempts to remove impurities from tap water
(C) which try to remove tap water's impurities
(D) that try to remove impurities from within tap water
(E) that attempts to remove impurities that are present within tap water


Ans; B is correct.
option A - too lenghty(wordy)
option B - it seems precise, so hold it.
option C - hold it,
option d - that must not come after comma.
option E - same as D

NOw between B and C , choose B only because C is a case of Apostrophe, which is avoidable.
