• Fusion, the heat and light produced by the sun, has been studied by scientists,

• Fusion, the process through which heat and light are produced by the sun, has been studied by scientists,

• Scientists have studied fusion, the process the sun uses to produce heat and light,

• Scientists have studied fusion, the process the sun uses to produce heat and light, and

The answer is A. B is out because fusion is a process and not "heat and light" itself. C is out because when there's a choice as direct as A it is safe to scrap C. D and E are outright wrong.

Ans is E. non underlined part is an independent clause so there should be a conjunction before it if underlined part is an independent clause. because of this reason, i rejected others. the sentence is more active itself.

Narrowed it down to A and C .C is passive So A is the correct option.

The given question as such has been disowned by MGMAT vide <https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/forums/too-many-present-perfect-tenses-t21499.html> They have also offered a revised question. Souvik may perhaps like to amend the given question.

Won't the comma without a conjunction makes this a run on sentences?

As we have two independent clauses in this sentence.

Please clarify on this.

Please clarify on this.

The clause "some of whom...." is not an independent clause, but (a subgroup modifier) dependent clause. The relative pronoun "whom" indicates that the clause is not independent.

"Some of whom have attempted...." cannot stand as a sentence by itself.

Ajit: even A uses ‘which’. Once you know why something is wrong, why do you wan to look beyond that and unnecessarily waste your valuable time in the test?

Can't option A be run-on here?
Two complete sentences joined by a comma.

Can there be choices on GMAT which would differ only between passive and active voice?

In rare cases, yes.

It will help you if you know the difference between the two and when to use which. The wrong usage may sometimes alter the meaning as well.

Manhattan changed the answer choices. please review the following:

Dear souvik101990

I would like draw your attention that this question NOT GMATPrep. It is a Manhattan question. More importantly, they have changed the answer choices according to Stacey Koprince (Manhattan instructor)

Why C cant be the answer?
In option C the modifier is in passive voice as is "Fusion has been studied"?
