Question 8

Recent research has drawn a distinction between manic-depression, which involves intense highs and intense lows, and"bipolar disorder type II", in which the manic highs, though present, are not of the same intensity as those exhibited in manic-depressives.

b. from "bipolar disorder type II", where the manic highs, though present, do not have the same intense nature as those exhibited by
c. and "bipolar disorder type II", which exhibits highs which, though present, are of much less intensity than such as the ones exhibited in
d. and "bipolar disorder type II", for whom the manic highs are present, though not to the same extent as the highs exhibited in
e. from "bipolar disorder type II", where the manic highs have an equal presence, but do not exhibit the intensity of the highs exhibited through the behaviour of

Question out of a and c... a is concise.. but does not seem to be parallel. c on the other hand is wordy, but parallel.... which to choose in such a case.

the correct answer is actually a

use POE.

correct idiom is distinguish between x and y so eliminate "from"s

d is wrong for "who" used only for people.

c is wrong because there is always a comma before "which" in gmat world.

A remains

No dispute about B, D and E.

* The obvious reason for C is "which" that is not preceded by a comma, which is most basic rule in case of relative clause "which".

* "much less intensity than" is also not an idiomatic expression.

the correct answer is actually a

why?


As you narrowed it down to A & C, C is wrong because it is

(1) Lengthy

(2) such as the ones is worse compared to those.

(3) which involves is different from which exhibits. BD type II itself does not exhibit. People who have BD type II exhibit that.

A remains
