ey,

can someone help me here please:

MGAT SC, chapter 6 - modifiers, problem #8

Problem:

People that are well-informed know that Bordeaux is a French region whose most famous export is the wine which bears its name.

Correction:

Well-informed people know that Bordeaux is a French region whose most famous export is the wine that bears its name.


I do get the corrections in the Second part of the sentence, the only part I have problems with is the "People that are well informed".
I understand it is wordy and the correct version fixes it.

However, Is it ok on the GMAT for a sentance to contain "people that" or is it always incorrect.

Does it always have to be "People Who"?

Yes, "people who" is correct. "people that" is wrong
