I think the answer is A.

Option B changes the meaning of the given statement - "b) Right-brained people who are more likely than left-brained .."

The statement given was explaining the fact that Right brained folks are different, but the option B already "assumes" that & changes the initial meaning.

Similarly C & D incorrectly change the main subject to Occupations - Occupations cannot think Freely of have empathy!
Option E is just awkward :)

Hope it helps!

a) Right-brained people are more likely than left-brained people to pursue occupations that involve exercising empathy, thinking creatively, and expressing emotion freely.
b) Right-brained people who are more likely than left-brained people to pursue occupations that involve exercising empathy, thinking creatively, and expressing emotion freely.

You cannot use the construct that B has.

You cannot place a modifer between the subject and the its refering verb in that case, for example:
"My brother who lives is San Francisco".
"My brother lives is San Francisco".

The meaning is different, in the first example
"My brother who lives is San Francisco". It is implied that I have more than one brother (just one lives in SF)
with the same logic
"Right-brained people who are more likely". It is implied that there are Right-brained people who are NOT more likely (...), and you are talking about a portion of those. (wrong meaning)

Hope it's clear

A Right-brained people are more likely than left-brained people to pursue occupations that involve exercising empathy, thinking creatively, and expressing emotion freely. -- correct choice

B Right-brained people who are more likely than left-brained people to pursue occupations that involve exercising empathy, thinking creatively, and expressing emotion freely. -- a fragment due to the intrusion of the relative pronoun 'who'

C Occupations for right-brained people, rather than left-brained people, are the more likely to involve exercising empathy, thinking creatively, and expressing emotion freely. --- the more likely involve is wrong diction.

D Occupations pursued by right-brained people instead of left-brained people are more likely to involve the exercise of empathy, creative thinking, and the free expression of emotion. --' Instead of' is wrong diction; instead of means 'in the place of'

E Rather than left-brained people, occupations pursued by right-brained people are more likely to involve exercising empathy, thinking creatively, and expressing emotion freely. -- wrongly comparing left-brained people with occupations

can someone Explain A and B...



I have a question.

Occupations for right-brained people, rather than for left-brained people, are more likely to involve exercising empathy, thinking creatively, and expressing emotion freely.

How about this sentence.

Is there any problem here?
