Though the term “empath” is not considered a formal designation of clinical psychiatry, it frequently appears in pop psychology as a person of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity.

A. it frequently appears in pop psychology as a person of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity
B. it frequently appears in pop psychology like a person of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity
C. it frequently appears in pop psychology, meaning persons of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity
D. it frequently appears in pop psychology in the form of people of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity
E. it frequently appears in pop psychology to denote a person of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity

Simple yet Confusing

Solution: This is a Logical Meaning question. In this question you should ask yourself what “it” is referring to. In this case “it” means "the term empath", so we can’t say that “it” is a person as the subject is illogically linked to what follows (illogical predication); terms have to apply to people. (A) and (B) contain this error of predication; (C) has a separate meaning problem, as the singular term "empath" cannot mean "persons" (plural). (D) still has an error of predication as it states that a term can appear in the form of a person. (E) is thus the best answer, making the pronoun “it” refer to the “term” and saying, in effect, “the term ‘empath’ appears in pop psychology to denote a person of unusual tact.”
