- Same thing

(D) to have a gross weight less than 8,000 pounds and being registered to an individual

I'll take C here.
as one that is registered to an individual and that has a gross weight of less than 8,000 pounds

The two bolded portions are two restrictive clauses linked by conjunction "and" and refer to "one" which stands for the vehicle

E doesn't sound right to me with a lack of parallelism in verb tenses

the car is already registered to an individual, so part tense for regiester is okay. The present tense for the car 'weighs' is used because it is a fact that the car weight that much. I don't see quite a real need for parallel verb tense here.

i also have similar thoughts, i couldn't comprehend any reason for introducing parallelism in the verb tense. To me choice 'C' sounds just too wordy...

E seemed right to me, but unfortunately the OA is choice 'C' as pointed out by Paul..

Paul, can you pls explain your reasoning why u felt E is incorrect.?

Thanks

As paul pointed out, probably lack of parallelism in verbs although their tenses are correct.

This also has to do with idioms
"define X as Y"
We need 2 nouns taking place of X and Y
E lacks that

A more specific idiom with "defined X as one that". C is the only choice with this.
