chetan2u, I too thought the same and went for option B, but the OA is A. I think here you need a possesive pronoun since your intention is to tell 'city's economic growth' not city economic growth., so B makes more sense than does A. So I think OA is not correct.

thanks...

hi, i thought of B(as i mentioned earlier) if there was a comma in front of whose..... it seems B does not have a comma as i saw in some forum .... Athat way stands out... diff given is that where is used for a place..

IMO A is correct...

where is correctly used as where can be used as a metaphorical pronoun to refer a place and in this sentence... it refers the city where the economic growth has been stagnant!

A vs B

IMO - A

In A - city, where - pronoun where clearly modifies city.

whose is a possesive, hence if you have city's then whose can be correct.

Can someone explain why comma is needed?
Don't we decide whether comma is needed or not depending on how essential the information is?
Why is the use of whose wrong here?
Below is the OE, but I am still confused.

The proper use of the words where and whose is being tested in this sentence. Whose refers to a being capable of making a decision, whereas where refers to a place. The sentence is also testing the correct use of a comma to join a subordinate clause to an independent clause.

A The sentence correctly uses the word where to modify city, and also properly joins a subordinate clause to an independent clause using a comma.

B This option lacks a comma and creates a run-on sentence; it also misuses the word whose.

I suggest that those interested visit the following two sites to know more about the use of ‘which’ and ‘whose’.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/whose
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/where
The above two articles will explode the myths that
1. A comma is required before ‘where’. Therefore, A is a better choice
2. ‘Whose’ also requires a comma before it, or else, the sentence will turn a run-on.
3. A run-on has been created due to the lack of comma before the possessive relative pronoun ‘whose’
4. The word ‘whose’ is misused to modify a city.
5. Whose can stand only for human being and not for inanimate bodies.
The OE is misleading.
