Effect is singular. So eliminate A & B for incorrect use of "Are". Correct verb form is "IS".

Eliminate D & E for meaning.

So C.

This is classic subject-verb agreement type of question.

Breaking down the right choice (C) -

The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict...

is - singular use for the effect ...
are - for the multiple aspects ..

C fits in good,
The effect of X on global warming is one of the many "Z's" of the ocean environment that "are"...... to predict.
also "models" in all the options helps to indicate use of "are"

A. The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting --- Subject verb error and awkward construction.
B. The effect on global warming of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet incorporated in any detail into computer models, which they use to predict --- Subject verb error and pronoun ambiguity.
C. The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict --- all good.
D. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet having been incorporated in any detail into the computer models that are used for predicting --- having without comma always wrong on GMAT "noun, having -ed modifier blah blah" is on e of the acceptable forms; comma before or after (if opening phrase modifier) is necessary.

C is the correct answer.

It aptly demonstrates the effect of ocean caps on global warming as one of the many aspects of ocean environment which play there role & are yet to be included.

The subject here is 'effect of global warming' - singular.
Options A and B: incorrect use of plural verb 'are'
Option D: 'to predict' is correct as we need to showcase intent; secondly, 'not yet incorporated' is sufficient; 'not yet having been incorporated' is incorrect.
Option E: same as D. 'not yet incorporated' is sufficient; the extra 'being' is unnecessary. There is no modifier issue here - 'which' refers to computer models.

thanks
kudos appreciated.

The questions is measuring our skills of S-V-A & Modifier. now check the splits .

The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting how rising greenhouse gas concentrations could affect climate


A. The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting

B. The effect of ocean white caps on global warming are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models, which they use to predict

C. The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict

D. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet having been incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting

E. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet being incorporated in any detail into the computer models, which they use to predict
In options A & B The subject "The effect " is not agree to verb "are". Eliminated

The next split is between for+ predicting and to predict. These words are not preceded by comma. to+verb is used to if the action is done with a purpose where as for verb+ing is used to modify either a noun or a verb and denotes some relation to the entity it modifies. Here is a purpose to predict the affect of rising greenhouse gas concentrations on climate . So we can eliminate option D.
Now between E and C you can easily select option C as E has pronoun "they " without anticedent.

Hi,

In " many aspects of the ocean environment that" ,"that" refers to immediate noun before it ,which is "the ocean environment" but here "that" refers to "many aspects".
Can you please help me to clarify this concept.

[quote="souvik101990"]The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting how rising greenhouse gas concentrations could affect climate.

A. The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting
B. The effect on global warming of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet incorporated in any detail into computer models, which they use to predict

E. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet being incorporated in any detail into computer models, which they use to predict

look at C and E.
in C, the effect of ... can be incorporated into computer model logically. but in E, the idea that caps have an effect can not incorporated into computer model logically. E, so, is not logic.
this logic error is typical on gmat sc. in this problem, we do not need to realize this logic error to go to OA. in other problem this logic error is tested.

Okay so the only issue I have with this question is that "the global-warming effect of ocean white caps" implies that ocean white caps contribute to global warming or induce effects that mimick it. The effect of ocean white caps on global warming means something else? As in the effect of the white caps could lessen global warming or make it worse.
