Hi roopika2990,

Gall's hypothesis of there being different mental functions localized in different parts of the brain is widely accepted today.

(B) of different mental functions that are localized in different parts of the brain is widely accepted today
(C) that different mental functions are localized in different parts of the brain is widely accepted today

The original sentence talks about Gall’s hypothesis. What is this hypothesis?
Hypothesis = different mental functions are localized in different parts of the brain. His hypothesis is not of different mental functions. His hypothesis is about mental functions and the sentence clearly spells out that hypothesis.

Choice B states that Gall’s hypothesis is of different mental functions. This is not the intended meaning. This makes choice B incorrect.

Choice C correctly and clearly conveys the intended meaning. It spells out what the hypothesis is, and hence is correct.

Hope this helps. :)
Thanks.
Shraddha

@sdas: you're totally wright.

Because I see may people fall in a trap in (B). So, I just want to add one more thing.

Both B & C have "that".
But B is incorrect because it changes the meaning. "that" modifies "hypothesis", not functions.
It's like: Gall's hypothesis that are localized in different part........
B doesn't make any sense because of wrong modifier

(B) Gall’s hypothesis of different mental functions that are localized in different parts of the brain is widely accepted today

Regards.

There is only one essential requirement in this thread. When you introduce Gall’s hypothesis, it has to be introduced as ‘Gall’s hypothesis that. All other idioms are wrong; Only C is correctly expressing the idiom.

Hypothesis is a reporting verb. After a reporting verb we need to use "that".
Only C fits - 17 secs :D

In GMAT, "hypothesis that..." would always be preferable to "hypothesis of..". Consider it an idiomatic usage.

"Hypothesis" is not a verb - it is a noun. The modifier "that different mental functions are......" refers to the noun "hypothesis".

To supplement the discussion above here is how Egmat simplifies the use of "That" in a sentence.

Hope this helps.
