Down to AE A is out coz 'which' reference which is wrong Go with E In D an extra 'a' between as & part is making the sentence unidiomatic. Hence we can go for E .

A.
B. million, a part of a deal that makes
C. million, part of a deal making
D. million as a part of a deal to make
E. million as part of a deal that will make

It's straight E.
Also notice the use of "will" in E.

Hi EducationAisle Should that modify deal ? deal that makes the company --> is correct and that is what is in E as well. I eliminated for the reason First part was Independent clause next is dependent clause. and pattern for complex sentence is : DC,IC ( with comma) and IC DC ( no comma if IC comes first) so i eliminated.. but if there is an better way .. i would like to learn. _________________ Cheers, Shri ------------------------------- GMAT is not an Exam... it is a war ..

Hi Shrivathsan, are you talking about option B? If yes, then second part is not a dependent clause in B; it's just a phrase. _________________ Thanks, Ashish (GMAT Faculty @ EducationAisle) http://www.EducationAisle.com Sentence Correction Nirvana available at Amazon.in and Flipkart Now!

Such structures serve as phrases (in this case, more specifically, it's called an appositive). In B, the meaning is incorrect. It seems to suggest that$950 million is part of a deal!

However, the intended meaning is that the purchase (of the color-printing division) is being done as part of the deal.
