Acually i opted for A
somehow i felt te sentence was in flow
whats the source ??? is it from OG !!!!
in C weuse ,and to indicate independent clauses hence its correct but for making sounds weird

again in A it correctly uses that which connects th two parts !!!i would have marked A only !!ot this wrong :roll:
WHATS THE SOURCE ?

A is clearly wrong as "them" refers to "measurements" and is not correct.

I would go with D. It is grammatically correct even though there is a break in the sentence when the author talks about the scientists.
If we used this kind of English in our AWA section, I am not sure how many Business schools would call us for interviews!

The only possible answer is C - the most concise, and grammatically correct.
