(A) letting people see the different ads placed by political pages, which is a move -Plitical pages is not a move. here ,which usage is incorrect

(B) that let people see the different ads being placed by political pages, and it is a moveThat let (plural) does not agree with a new tool (Singular) + ......and it is a move.... tries to make a parallel list, which changes the meaning.

(C) that let people see the different ads placed by political pages, which is a move-Same as option B and option A

(D) that lets people see the different ads being placed by political pages, a move Correct usage of verb lets (singular) for subject a new tool (Singular) + .... , a move correctly conveys the intended meaning without any error

(E) that lets people see the different ads placed by political pages and is a move - Parallel list hampers the required meaning

(E) that lets people see the different ads placed by political pages and is a move


in Option A & C there is no referent for "Which". "Which is" is singular and is not referring to anything.

Option B & C--that let--is wrong. "Tool" is singular so "that lets" should come.

Option E-- That lets...,and is a move--tool is not a move

Option D is correct as per my opinion.

OA given for question is D.

Also option D is better than E.
D- "a move" correctly modifies the part before comma and make complete sense

E-says a tool is a move .tool is not move but people see different ads is the move here

Hope this helps.Give kudos if it does

VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL SOLUTION:



There are two important decision points in this problem: the subject-verb agreement choice between “let” and “lets” and the different structural/modifier choices at the end of each answer. Starting with the easier subject-verb agreement choice, you can eliminate (B) and (C) as the clause “that let…” is modifying “a new tool,” which is singular. It must be “a new tool that lets….”

In comparing the remaining three choices, you should hone in on the “which” clause at the end of (A). There is no singular noun nearby for that clause to logically modify, so you know it is incorrect and can be confidently eliminated. (D) and (E) are identical but for two differences: (D) has “being placed” instead of “placed” but the important decision point is the one between “pages, a move” in (D) and “pages and is a move” in (E). For (E), the use of a conjunction creates the following illogical sentence: “the company has built a new tool and is a move…” The company cannot be “a move” so this structure is clearly incorrect.

For (D), the appositive modifier added to the end of the sentence with a comma logically modifies the entire preceding clause and the use of “being” is preferred with the past participle, as it emphasizes that they get to see the action of ads being placed. The correct answer is (D).

Although the broad picture is clear in D, is it correct to use 'being' as a modifier? Not as per the edicts of GMAT, I suppose. In addition, 'being' gives a feeling that the company lets people see the ads as and when they are being made in the studios .

The company has built a new tool letting people see the different ads placed by political pages, which is a move meant to address influence campaigns like those seen in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

(A) letting people see the different ads placed by political pages, which is a move

(B) that let people see the different ads being placed by political pages, and it is a move

(C) that let people see the different ads placed by political pages, which is a move

(D) that lets people see the different ads being placed by political pages, a move

(E) that lets people see the different ads placed by political pages and is a move

tool is singular hence only d and e possible . E is not parallel hence D is the answer
