Only Option (E) Possible answer...

Using a new, high-technology process, scientists can create diamonds by simulating the natural processes that occur over time in the Earth’s crust

Using a new, high-technology process-------must modify-----> Scientists

Hence answer will be (E)

I think the only sensible option is E with the addition of the word "Scientists" as out of all the 5 choices , the phrase "Using a new, high-technology process," correctly modifies scientists as in others the question of "who will use this technology" remains unanswered.

Choice E is the answer!

Only in option E 'Using a new, high-technology process' modifies 'Scientists'

Hence E is the correct choice.

Is adding a new word okay here? I agree that E is the best option, but it put me off initially because it added a new word scientists, which was not mentioned anywhere in the original statement.

Modifier error here. After the first phrase, we need a noun such as a scientist. Only option E gives us.

E is correct

Replying to a private message from gargisback

B is incorrect because you should avoid as much as possible the passive voice on the GMAT. We are made to speak clearly and directly.

If you are at a symposium you talk to your audience in a direct way: we made an important discover.......NOT the discovery was made by us. It is weird like you come from another planet.

Curiously enough, this way to switch the speech parts to appear weird or strange or from another territory, planet galaxy was the technique followed by the authors of star wars to make it appear as really weird in his talk Maestro Yoda.

Hope this helps.

regards
