With corn, soybean, and wheat reserves being low enough so a poor harvest would send prices skyrocketing, grain futures brokers and their clients are especially interested in weather that could affect crops.

There is a cause and effect and we require "so that" and specifically "so X that Y".
"so" provides a reason and not cause and effect.

(A) being low enough so
"that" is missing.

(B) so low such that
"such that" also provides cause and effect but it is coupled with "so". either use so that or such that but not both

(C) so low that
Crisp and correct

(D) that are low enough so
"that" is missing

(E) that are so low such that
Same issue as option B)

Pure idiom play; reserves so low that ( so adjective that) is the correct choice.

But can we say “being so low that”?? I’m hesitate on
“With A, B, and C so low that”, and “With A, B, and C being so low that”

Both “with A, B, and C so low that”, and “with A, B, and C being so low that” mean the same thing except that the 'being' is an unnecessary burden on the clause; this redundancy is the reason that GMAT shuns the word ‘being’ in such contexts

Hi experts,

so far, idiom "so ...that..." or "...so that.." states a CE relationship for me.
I read the OE
OE wrote:
The opening phrase compares one economic condition (grain reserve levels) with another (prices) using the idiomatic expression so low that.

that says "so..that.." is a tag of comparison, it is hard for me to understand.
appreciate if explain further

thanks a lot
have a nice day

I would love to help out. The idiom SO X THAT Y is used for comparing the interplay of two things.

In this particular sentence, The condition of low reserves and the related action that "grain futures brokers and their clients" will take is described.

Does this help? I'll be happy to explain more. Please pin point your doubt.

Best,
SS18

(A) being low enough so
(B) so low such that
(C) so low that
(D) that are low enough so
(E) that are so low such that

Straight C - Because of correct IDIOM - "So ------- that"

(A) being low enough so
(B) so low such that
(C) so low that
(D) that are low enough so
(E) that are so low such that


so....that

so low such that is verbose and hence incorrect within the context of the GMAT

The correct phase is "so low that." While "so low such that" is not necessarily grammatically incorrect it is nonetheless because it is too verbose within the context of the GMAT.
