Plane symmetry refers to the symmetry of a pattern in the Euclidean plane, that is a transformation of the plane that carries any directional lines and preserves different distances.

Meaning : Plane symmetry refers to a symmetry of a pattern in EP
in this pattern there is a tansfrmation of the plane that (transformation) does 2 things:
1. carry
2. preserve

Please note that "in Eucladian plane" is a modifier modifying the noun "pattern" ..so the additional info provided in the undrlined portion talks about the pattern IN THE EP and not EP itself !!

A). that is a transformation of the plane that carries any directional lines
- our main subject is patterns in eP ...not EP ...also in gmat "that" does not follow a comma if it is modifying a noun

Quote:
B). a transformation of the plane that carries any directional lines
- noun+ noun modifier = pattern in EP (noun) + a transformation (noun modifier ) CORRECT\


C). that is, a transformation of the plane which carries any directional lines
-absolute rubbish consruction

D). which is a transformation of the plane that carries any directional lines
- "which" may modify precdeing noun "Eucl plane" ...now if there isnt a less ambiguous option then D holds ! but we ave B which is clean and unambiguous

E). or a transformation of the plane carrying any directional lines
- modifier is made a required entity ...change of meaning

A. that is a transformation of the plane that carries any directional lines
Run-On Sentence: "that is" is an abridged version of "that is to say". Remember sentences starting with "that is" are independent clauses. Therefore, in this option, two independent clauses are joined by a comma, resulting in a run-on sentence. Had the sentence used a semi-colon, it would have been correct.
Style and Usage: "That is" is common'ly used in informal writing but would be considered unacceptable in more formal writing.

B. transformation of the plane that carries any directional lines

C. that is, a transformation of the plane which carries any directional lines
Run-On Sentence: "that is" is an abridged version of "that is to say". Remember sentences starting with "that is" are independent clauses. Therefore, in this option, two independent clauses are joined by a comma, resulting in a run-on sentence.
Style and Usage: "That is" is common'ly used in informal writing but would be considered unacceptable in more formal writing.
Modifier Error: Relative pronoun which MUST always be preceded by a comma.

D. which is a transformation of the plane that carries any directional lines
Modifier Error: Relative pronoun which modifies the immediately preceding noun before the comma. Hence, the entire relative clause starting with which erroneously modifies the Euclidean plane.


E. or a transformation of the plane carrying any directional lines
Modifier Error: Verbing modifier without comma modifies the immediately preceding noun. Hence, the verbing phrase "carrying any directional lines" erroneously modifies plane.
Meaning Error: The usage of conjunction or distorts to the meaning of the sentence. In other words, the sentence as written provides two disjoint definitions of plane symmetry.
