The correct answer is C because:

1. The subject is “the demand.” This is a singular noun that requires the singular verb “remains.” Therefore, choices A, B, and D can be eliminated.
2. Choice C uses the proper phrase “such as” which is used to introduce the list of examples while Choice E uses the “like,” which should never be used to introduce examples.

IMO C
"Such as" is used to list examples, while "like" is used to compare. And "remains" modifies "demand", so it must be in singular form

Correct answer is C. Demand is singular, so the correct verb is remains. Hence, A, B & D are wrong. Now E uses Fields, Like field of is redundant..

Lets start with like vs such as. "Like" is used incorrectly to provide examples."Such as" in this case is much more appropriate. As a result choices are between C and D.
C is correct because Demand is singular and goes along with remains. " The demand for professors ...remains strong despite...."

Answer choice is C is the clear winner here.
Because the subject of the sentence 'demand' is singular, it should follow the singular verb 'remains'. Therefore the options A, B & D are out.
Further, 'such as' is used to list the examples and 'like' is used for comparison purpose. The purpose of the given sentence is to list out the examples and hence such as should be used. The option E is out.

(D) fields such as business, law, and the applied sciences remain

Its c !!
Subject is the demand - singular
Hence verb must be singular remains
Also like is been used in original sentence to give examples which is wrong .
Correct usage of like is for comparing nouns in gmat!!
A : sub - verb error also use of like
B : sub-verb , use of like & those error as those does not have an antecedent
C : correct
D : S-V error
E : us is of like error

(C)
like = “similar to”
such as = “for example”

So we have :-

A. The demand for professors in highly vocational fields similar to business, law, and the applied sciences remain strong despite a difficult job market for most PhD graduates seeking to teach in academia.

B. The demand for professors in highly vocational fields similar to those of business, law, and the applied sciences remain strong despite a difficult job market for most PhD graduates seeking to teach in academia.

C. The demand for professors in highly vocational fields such as(for example) business, law, and the applied sciences remains strong despite a difficult job market for most PhD graduates seeking to teach in academia.

D. The demand for professors in highly vocational fields such as(for example) business, law, and the applied sciences remain strong despite a difficult job market for most PhD graduates seeking to teach in academia.

E. The demand for professors in highly vocational fields, similar to the fields of business, law, and the applied sciences, remains strong despite a difficult job market for most PhD graduates seeking to teach in academia.

I hope this is correct.

My analysis:
1. Issues with the question stem: On the GMAT "Like" is used as "similar to". In this case we are introducing a list (providing examples). Hence we need to use "such as".
2. Subject Verb agreement; Demand (singular subject) for... remains (singular verb) strong...

Process of elimination:
(A) issues listed above
(B) issues listed above
(C) Correct answer
(D) subject verb agreement error
(E) issues listed above

Hi Ankit,
I don't think it can be E. E is too wordy an answer for GMAT Testmaker to like it. The answer should be C considering the number agreement on the subject and the verb. Also, 'such as' is used to list when talking inclusive whereas 'like' is used to represent an exclusive list.

Nothing is being compared here. So, " like " is redundant. " Such as " is the right replacement when you're giving examples.
The subject is "demand" and the verb that goes along with this is " remains ".

Answer is (C)

OA - C

Here low hanging is not 'like vs such as' but the wrong comparison. GMAT will trick this issue in the real exam.

Options A,B and D use wrong Subject-Verb (demand and remain).
Options E uses 'like' to compare the vocational fields and business,law and science BUT uses wrong comparison because 'that' has to be present after 'like'(i.e. like that(demand) for business, law and sciences). So option E uses wrong comparison and hence is wrong.

Hence OA is C

(E) fields, like the fields of business, law, and the applied sciences, remains


Here is how I arrived at the Solution.
• The Subject is Demand hence the singular verb that agrees with the subject is remains.
• Like is used to compare nouns. Such as is used to list examples, hence Such as suits better in this sentence.
• A : subject and verb does not agree in number. (Wrong)
B : subject and verb does not agree in number, Use of ‘Those’ is not required.(Wrong)
C : correct
D : subject and verb does not agree in number.(Wrong)
E : Like is used to introduce a list of items.(Wrong)
P.s : Hope i get the free test :P :wink:

C - IMO
The demand - singular and remains - singular.
Such as is used for introducing examples, hence that's the correct choice.

The subject is “the demand.” This is a singular noun that requires the singular verb “remains.” The simplified sentence reads: “The demand … remains strong.” Therefore, choices A, B, and D can be eliminated.

Choices C and E are left as options. The additional decision point can be used to choose between these answers. Choice C uses the proper phrase “such as” to introduce the list of examples. Choice E uses the ungrammatical “like,” which should never be used to introduce examples. The proper phrasing is “I like fruits, such as bananas, oranges, and pineapples.” Choice E is also redundant, with the unnecessary repetition of “fields.

For these reasons, choice C is the correct answer.

I will go for option C.

For examples it should be "such as".

Two things are important - usage of "such as" as we are discussing list and the word "remains" as demand is singular.

Answer is C

First decision point the verb "remain" vs. "remains" ==> demand is singular and the right verb is "remains", A, B &D are eliminated
Second decision point "like" vs. "such as" when trying to give examples "such as" is the appropriate word to use E is eliminated

Correct answer is C
