weird one. Looks like an idiom test.
C sounds ok. "agreement is a protocol under which". I am not sure of the usage of wherein.

C/E. Would pick C since I am not sure of E.

C. It's a little ugly, but grammar comes first... protocols, agreements, contracts should be coupled with under

A is my pick.
"under the agreement", "by the protocol".

"We are under an agreement". C sounds right.

1.wherein = in which

2. keep in mind that "protocol under which", so no matter whether it is "in, for or by which"

C is the best

a. by which - whatever follows by will tell you the process...so A is out
b. for which - changes the meaning of the sentence
c. under which - correct
d. such that - I guess such that and such as is used for list
e. wherein - changes the meaning.

IMO C

This one was easy

In this case, I only used my ear - sounds and common usage.
"under the Federal constitution...it is illegal to...";

wherein: functions as a conjunction (Merriam Webster Dictionary) => "in which" and answers the question
"where?" for example;
this is my hometown wherein I was born.

Also answers the question "how"
for example;
I'd be glad if you could show me wherein I can locate the goldmine

One question regarding the not underlined part of the sentence: "To formally require" is not a split infinitive, which is never accepeted in the GMAT?
please clarify.

Can you please explain reasoning of A. I did not quite get that.

If I say,
"In India, some of the best monuments were created by Mughals."

Here Mughals is Noun. What is the process over here?
