if / then in GMAT is reserved only for conditional sentences so B is out.

Young people can loose their virginity only once they cant loose it more often so E is out.

One Reason why / Because is redundant so A is out.

C construction is ackward. it seems that the reason is 'young people lose their virginity more during the summer '.

Answer is D. Except for because A is a close choice.

Anytime you see these words together, the answer choice is WRONG !!


"reason why"
"reason because"
"different than"

^ D ^

A and E are redundant as we have both "because" and "reason" within the same sentence. So, they are out.

B is out because it talks as if there is only one reason. It sounds too certain of itself !! We dont have the meaning "one of the reasons" as in the original sentence.

C is out as the sentence construction is not good. After "is" we need "that" !!

you dont need one reason and because at the same time

(A) One reason why more young people lose their virginity during the summer than at other times of the year undoubtedly is because
(B) If young people lose their virginity more during the summer than other seasons, it is undoubtedly because
(C) One undoubtable reason that young people lose their virginity more during the summer than other times is
