Hi,

I also made the same mistake when I was at your stage.

We don't use s/es with the verb when we use model verb.

Hey gvij2017, thanks for your reply.
Could you please elaborate which modal verb you are referring to in context of the question? Also, what is the correct usage of it?

My approach - it should clearly be impair because 'air pollution' is one entity. A, B, C is eliminated

Out of D and E, shouldn't it clearly state "farm products?". I think only reason why D goes out would be

[such --- like] is illegal construction
[such --- as] is right

Air pollution (singular) would normally go well with impairs (singular). The may is the reason that we see an impair in the correct option (as gvij2017 pointed out).

Official Explanation

Agreement; Diction

In the sentence as written, the phrase as well is used incorrectly as a substitute for also. Furthermore, the incorrect construction such . . . like is used rather than such . . . as.

A. This choice is incorrect for the reasons mentioned above.
B. This choice incorrectly uses as well as a substitute for also.
C. This choice correctly uses also, but it uses the incorrect construction such . . . like.
D. This choice correctly uses also, but it uses the incorrect construction such . . . like.
E. Correct. This choice correctly uses the construction such . . . as and correctly uses also instead of as well.

The correct answer is E.

Indoor air pollution can threaten the health of closely confined farm animals and the workers who tend them and perhaps as well impairs the quality of such farm products like eggs, poultry, and pork.

So here if we pay close attention we have and, which triggers parallelism . In the 1st non underlined Part we have Can threaten so we need parallel verb to that, based on that

Option A,B,C gets eliminated,

Option D,E remains

D uses like to give examples which is incorrect

So E

Other way we can also look,We can not use like to give examples, that leaves us Option B and E, Now E is parallel and exact meaning

(A) perhaps as well impairs the quality of such farm products like
(B) perhaps as well impairs the quality of such farm products as
(C) perhaps also impairs the quality of such farm products like
(D) may also impair the quality of such farm products like
(E) may also impair the quality of such products as

There's an error in copying the question from the source. Option E includes "such FARM products as" and not just "such products as". This is an important point, as one might otherwise eliminate "E" for the deletion of an essential part of the sentence.

Hi Rachna, the correct idiom is such as and not such like.

Hey GMATNinja daagh and other experts,
Correct me if I'm wrong!
Don't we normally eliminate choices in which 'and and 'also' appear together?
Although I see that 'and' and 'also' are used in all the choices, why are they not redundant here?
Please give your views.
Thanks in advance :)

As you said, almost universally 'and also' is regarded as redundant. But that is beside the point. However, I know at least one example from GMATPrep, which accepted the use of 'and also'.
If somebody can add to the list, then it would be really appreciable.

1. Turning away from literary realism to write romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, in 1909 Selma Lagerlöf was the novelist who became the first woman and was also the first Swedish writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.
A. Turning away from literary realism to write romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, in 1909 Selma Lagerlöf was the novelist who became the first woman and was also the first Swedish writer to win
B. She turned away from literary realism and wrote romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, and novelist Selma Lagerlöf in 1909 became the first woman as well as the first Swedish writer that won
C. Selma Lagerlöf was a novelist who turned away from literary realism to write romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, and in 1909 she became the first woman in addition to the first Swedish writer winning
D. A novelist who turned away from literary realism to write romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, Selma Lagerlöf became in 1909 the first woman and also the first Swedish writer to win
E. As a novelist, Selma Lagerlöf turned away from literary realism and wrote romantic stories about the peasant life and landscape of northern Sweden, in 1909 becoming the first woman and also the first Swedish writer that won

Ans D.

The take away: If GMAT winks at it, let's also learn to wink at it.
