Hi chanskr,

To start, you would likely receive more of a response if you posted the SC prompt in the SC forum here:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/sentence-correction-sc-138/

This sentence involves a 'comparison' - so we have to compare like things. The first 'part' of the comparison is 'one third the price', so the second 'part' of the comparison must also refer to a price. Since the second half of the sentence doesn't include any words that represent a price, we have to change the underlined word to "that" - here, "that" can be used as a pronoun to represent the price.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

That and those are generally used as replacement markers in comparison, so correct answer is C.
