e.a study that showed that human bone structure is essentially same as ape’s, the only exception being the human pelvis that became shorter, broader, and more bowl shaped and supported


hello,

the above is a question posted on a forum and source is said to be egmat..
my doubts are the following ..

1) is 'which' better here or 'a study that showed'....
for the examples quoted by 'e-gmat' in a blog to justify use of which to modify something faraway .. the noun preceding 'which' is a proper noun and a name of a person, so 'which' correctly refers back to what it is intended to..

a)Emily Dickinson’s letters to Susan Huntington Dickinson, which were written over a period beginning a few years before Susan’s marriage to Emily’s brother and ending shortly before Emily’s death in 1886, outnumber her letters to anyone else. (OG 13#29, Choice E)

b)Although she had been known as an effective legislator first in the Texas Senate and later in the United States House of Representatives, Barbara Jordan did not become a nationally recognized figure until 1974, when she participated in the hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, which were televised nationwide. (GMAT Prep, Choice B)

But is it so here .. NO.. which can refer to an animal, an ape in this case

2) 'with the exception of human pelvis that has become shorter, broader, and more bowl shaped to support"...
It is not the human pelvis that has become shorter, broader..., it is the pelvis that has become shorter... in humans..
it means that human pelvis has become shorter over a period of time , but i am sure the comparison is with that of ape...

Hi Egmat,
Its been six months since a query related to your institute has been asked. Would be grateful if it can be answered either way, with a solution or as a mistake..
Regards
