ps_dahiya,

I thought the same

also I thought that "so that" is wrong in GMAT land. Can anybody explain where and how the use of "so that" right ?

BTW OA is D

who has to marry? I think we have to make this clear. The king has to marry. Also I think there is nothing wrong with "so that".

Going with D.

'So that' can be used here.

I think it is C...

Isnt sought to have .... so that he could.. repetitive..

I think sought to have already means so that...

Whats wrong with C?

Initially I also thought D.. but then I started to think like GMAT people.. and now i think even things that seem straight at first looks wrong..

what is OA?
