the ans should start with "that"... because "of" doesn't make any sense, also, we need a different clause to explain what is the evidence.
On this basis we can negate option A and B ... and now we have only option C, D and E

Option E uses like to provide an example ... therefore it is out

Option D uses "a person" which makes subject singular ... but if we see the sentence after the underlined sentence it contains pronoun "their" which refers to the same subject ... thus it cant be singular ... it has to be a pleural.

Now we are left with only one option, i. e. Option C... hence it is the answer.

Please post the right question... C cant be the right answer, it cant end with "ing". Stacy has the correct question. and yes with the correct question "C" is indeed the right answer.

something is fishy here.

experiencing isn't parallel with the verb register.It should be experience,I suppose.

Anyways,interesting it is.

C- is parallel. Adjective......present participial is parallel,because both are working as adjective.
why A and B is incorrect.We need that to indicate belief,hypothesis,evidence .without that the sentence seems awkward.read the option A and B-what are they meaning?
D and E have agreement error.we need people not a singular subject.their is in non underlined part.
c remain the best choice

Clear C

2. people + their, not person + their

evidence that is the correct idiom here

A. of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as
B. of people initially registering emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing
C. that people initially register emotions such as sadness or anger in much the same way as they experiencing
D. that a person initially registers emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing
E. that a person initially registers emotions like sadness or anger much the same way as

i pick C. one split is such as/like so A and E are out. in my point of view "experiencing" is a dangling modifier so B and D are out. please correct me if my thought process is wrong.

Choice 'c' seems awkward as written. "as they experiencing heartburn.." seems wrong to me

Strike 3 => verb tense (plural) D out

Scientists have found new evidence of people ....... vs scintists have found new evidence that...

I mean why do we opt sentence with "that" instead of "of "

that followed by a sentence segment is a restrictive clause which shows the importance of the matter which follows "that"
"of"makes it very general and has larger scope under consideration

Hi all,

This is the correct version of the sentence. This should now be easy to solve:

Scientists have found new evidence of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as heartburn--by monitoring what's going on within their bodies.

(A) of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as
(B) of people initially registering emotions such as sadness or anger much the same as experiencing
(C) that people initially register emotions such as sadness or anger in much the same way as they experience
(D) that a person initially registers emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing
(E) that a person initially registers emotions like sadness or anger much the same as

Thanks.

out of all 5, i shortlisted b and c, and the only reason i could digest c was that b uses 'ing' that is not preferable in GMAT. Otherwise i'm not clear why new evidence in the question is to follow 'that' insted of 'of'

(A) of people initially registering emotions like sadness or anger in much the same way as
(B) of people initially registering emotions such as sadness or anger much the same as experiencing
(C) that people initially register emotions such as sadness or anger in much the same way as they experience
(D) that a person initially registers emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing
(E) that a person initially registers emotions like sadness or anger much the same as

"...by monitoring what's going on within their bodies." plural their, so D and E are out for singular a person.
emotions like sadness or anger...correct way to introduce examples is with "such as" so A is out.
much the same as experiencing heartburn sounds awkward in B, so going with C.

C is correct b/c of "in the same way" while D misses "in"
"they" in C refers to people, not scientists b/c of "experiencing"
I guess "they experiencing" is used as absolute phrase.
D is out because evidence is not based on an individual. Also, D changes the original meaning, it sounds as if experiencing...,a person registers....
