It is just a place holder and a dummy to get started with the statement, just as legally we say -- It looks as if it is going to rain today".

I was actually referring to the it in the non underlined portion. ' that it is impossible'. So what does this stand for ? a placeholder or does it have a antecedent? daagh

Abhishek,
In GMAT, it doesn't help to worry about non-underlined parts. We should consider them only to solve the underlined part. We might lose precious minutes on these inconsequentials.
But, for your query's sake, when there is no sensible antecedent for a pronoun, the pronoun may mostly be a dummy. Don't we say, it is impossible to decide which is better between the devil and the deep sea. What does the 'it' refer to?
