Comparison is teste here.
Such as must be used, because the intended meaning is to provide example of emotions.

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 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

Idiomatic usage: evidence that – eliminate A and B

C. that people initially register emotions such as sadness or anger in much the same way as they experiencing [ Correct use of Such as and “as” has a sub clause – hold it]
D. that a person initially registers emotions such as sadness or anger much the same way as experiencing [Why to switch from people to person – eliminate it]
E. that a person initially registers emotions like sadness or anger much the same way as [Why to switch from people to person – eliminate it]

Please refer to Cambridge dictionary for the correct usage of idioms:

evidence /"ev.I.d@nts/ noun [U]
one or more reasons for believing that something is or is not true:
The police have found no evidence of a terrorist link with the murder.
[+ to infinitive] There is no scientific evidence to suggest that underwater births are dangerous.
[+ that] Is there any scientific evidence that a person's character is reflected in their handwriting?

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

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

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.

Phew! thanks Shraddha. That makes SOOO much more sense now.

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....
