C for me too (like a person, as an object).

D is definately out if diagnose is not a typo.

E's use of 'or the like' consigns it to the bin for me

edit; i am assuming 'of' instead of for is a typo in C

Doesn't C have "used of" which should be "used for"... ?

This one is straight C.
|| structure----->diagnosing ...... deciding
Also, B and D have problems with "which".

If so why is B wrong here

OG, page 741 #189

B, the trap answer here is incorrect because "which" lacks a clear antecendent. Thanks for bringing this one to the surface. It's going straight to the BRUTAL 100 list.

C

D and E are straight out.

B is also out because it changes "will" to "may". MGMAT SC book clearly says don't change "UNKNOWN TO KNOWN" or vice-versa.

Out of A and C, C is better because of "such as" (assuming that "used of" is "used for") and proper comparison.

I believe the answer is A because it uses "as compared to like"
Like is used when comparing 2 Nouns, whereas 'as' is used while comparing 2 actions.

which in B refers to experts and not to computers. thats why B is wrong.
