D) incorrect use of that

Can some one explain, what is the grammatical reason why that is incorrect?

THAT is incorrect in option D.
=>THAT refers to closest noun(generally)==in this case it is refering to RATES ==>plural
and the verb after that = IS (SINGULAR)==>SUB-VERB DISAGRREMENT.
=>you will not see THAT after comma(generally)on GMAT ==>red flag option.
=>making it a passive construction =>so less favourable.

hope it helps

That is restrictive in nature, it is not essential that it will refer to closest noun. SV agreement can be easily spotted. there should be some other solid reason why that is wrong.

1)you already said that THAT is restrictive in nature ==>therefore COMMA before THAT is the error.
2)moreover read my previous post i said "THAT refers to closest noun(generally)"
generally means MORE LIKELY and not ALWAYS.
3)MOREOVER S-V agreement error i dont think is a LIQUID reason...thats a big error...
4)plus its good that you are trying to understand every reason but its also wastage of time breaking your head in wrong answers...
IMO above given reason are more than sufficient to eliminate that answer.

IF YOU CAN FIND MORE SOLID REASONS please share those.

Rising commercial real estates rates is a singular subject phrase. The modifier right after the phrase - a gauge - provides us the information that it is a singular subject.

Wonder how many of them have missed this.

Can any expert shed some more light ?

Rising... rates is plural. Ignore everything except rates.

Rising commercial real estate rates... are...

You could also try this official question.
