ABC are OUT due to incorrect modifier(requiring vast wild spaces...cant modify aborgines tribe.Its the lifestyles which require vast wild spaces..hence between D & E)

I have one Q
"that" can be used for Plural "lifestyles"?
IMO E then--parallel(D is also parallel except the use of that)
pls also note, "seems to be" is not so preferred in GMAT(Manhattan SC-page 204)
SEEMS TO
SEEMS THAT
SEEMS AS IF
all the above three are CORRECT

Friend
do check for typo before you post
D shd have "seem" and not "seems"
hence D is also OUT
11-t16271
Btw, can I use "life-styles that" in D?

It seems he has intentionally used seems in D to emphasize on difference between that reruire and requring in D and E resp... IMO E because D lacks 'that parallelism'

D lacks 'that parellelism'....

D should be it.

A- sounds like disappearance requires vast wild .....
B - same reason as the one for A.
C - which is attached the nearest word.. also in A,B and C, it sounds as if the disappearance sems to be inevitably doomed.
D - CORRECT
E - wrong construct.
