GMATNinja can THAT make so many jumps as this sentence?

Nice Q on SV agreement.

Proponents of monetary rewards

that managements awards to employees to prevent
them from leaving

consider
these vital extrinsic motivation, while critics of the policy
condemn these as corporate benefit

that
helps some workers but debilitates the work
culture of the industry.

THAT before helps refers to plural noun - awards and hence plural verb help makes sense.

Still don't understand how C is the right answer. Shouldn't it be A?


these as corporate benefit that helps ... but debilitates or
these as corporate benefits that help ... but debilitate.

A has subject verb agreement error.

Correct subject verb agreement will be

Managements (plural subject) award (plural verb)
these (plural subject) help (plural verb)

Can you please help explain how C is correct.
(C) award to employees to prevent them from leaving consider these vital extrinsic
motivation, while critics of the policy condemn these as corporate benefit that help
some workers but debilitate


As per my understanding, condemn these ( rewards) as corporate benefit that helps some workers but debilitates...should be the correct usage.

What's the subject for the second part of the sentence , " Monetary rewards" or " Corporate Benefit "?

In C dont you think benefit should be benefits or help should be helps?
(C) award to employees to prevent them from leaving consider these vital extrinsic

IMO this one is a poor SC problem. Why?
In choice C " that " refers to the monetory rewards . in choice A , the given sentence, " that " modifies the corporate benefit and hence the " that " part which follows the corporate benefit modifies corporate benefit. SC rule states that you have to keep the same meaning of the given sentence as long as the given sentence does not make sense. But here the modifier makes sense and hence it is correctly placed.
Answer choices- IMO all the options are wrong. The better of all i would say is D. Though the verb leaving is wrong is wrong.
EXTREMELY POOR SC PROBLEM.

Got this wrong, Selected D, but spotted the Error.

Proponents of monetary rewards that managements _______________ the work
culture of the industry.
(A) awards to employees to prevent them from leaving consider these vital extrinsic
motivation, while critics of the policy condemn these as corporate benefit that helps
some workers but debilitates - managements awards
(B) awards to employees to prevent leaving consider these vital extrinsic motivation,
while critics of the policy condemn it as corporate benefit that helps some workers
but debilitates - Same as A
(C) award to employees to prevent them from leaving consider these vital extrinsic
motivation, while critics of the policy condemn these as corporate benefit that help
some workers but debilitate - these help, these that help (Plural Subject these), 'as corporate benefits' adds info to 'these'.

(D) award to employees to prevent leaving consider these vital extrinsic motivation,
while critics of the policy condemn these as corporate benefit that helps some
workers but debilitates - Pointed in C.
(E) award to employees to prevent them from leaving considers it vital extrinsic
motivation while critics of the policy condemn it as corporate benefit that helps
some workers but debilitates

Though i believe the use of pronouns is not completely correct and can still have some ambiguity. Proponents of... managements... award to employees to prevent them, perceived 'them' points to employees. But can still stand for managements.
