I'll post the OA as soon as somebody gives the correct answer with explanation

Edit: FYI, this question has appeared on a previous GMAT exam.

Is the question from an official guide? If not, and if it is indeed from an older GMAT exam, you should probably delete this post.

I changed part of the non-underlined part. Is that OK or should I del?

I don't know, but GMAC has recently sued some message boards (scoretop.com) for disclosing questions from actual GMAT's.
If this question is from material that's in a book or some other form sanctioned by GMAC, then it's probably OK.

It's NOT a good idea to disclose questions from actual GMAT's.

It's from a paper test before Pearson Vue took over, then I changed part of the sentence.
