2)

@ Atifs; something is wrong with both your topics. The first choice in any GMAT SC is always the underlined part; These are no GMAT versions. Please revise them.

I have taken the manhattan gmat course and one thing i learnt from it is-never go by the sound of the sentence. Sometimes it sounds better but it is not necessarily grammatically correct.So always try and find the grammatical reason for the questions.
