Hello Pawan,

The IBM RS/6000, aka Deep Blue, is a general-purpose computer that uses a parallel processing computations and that is intended for applications in such diverse fields as in molecular dynamics and air traffic control

The first highlighted item talks about a characteristic of IBM and the second highlighted item talks about intended usage of IBM. So it doesn't make sense for them to be in parallel. Hence A is not preferred here.

Cheers!

Also, Usage of "that" in the second clause modifies "computer" literally.

The IBM RS/6000, aka Deep Blue, is a general-purpose
computer
that uses a parallel processing computations
and
that is intended for applications in such diverse fields as in molecular dynamics and air traffic control


Is computer itself is intended for applications ? or this specific IBM aka Deep Blue is intended for applications.

The logical meaning must take second structure.

The GMAT actually has on occasion used "like" to introduce examples, but it can't be mixed with "such." "Such as" is preferred and "like" is possible, but "such like" is just not a thing.

A, B, C are out as we don't need "that' as this makes list nonparallel.

The IBM is a general - purpose computer and is intended for applications xyz. Introduction of "that" clause after "and" creates a modification error as "that" will modify computer, and this modification is wrong.

D is out for using "such like".

E is correct.

We don't need "that" here, Bcz "that" will modify the "computer" where as the last part "intended...." is to modify the "IBM..."
Hense we need to create a list. Use of "that" would break the list.
Hope it's clear.

But how would one know that it should modify IBM and not the computer? Both are grammatically correct.

aditya201819,
I would try to give you an example-
1. Aditya, is an engineer who works for TCS and who is interested in football. ( The second part says that- Aditya is an engineer who likes football)

2. Aditya, is an engineer who works for TCS and is interested in football. (Second part directly saying that Aditya likes football)

Here don't you think that second one is much more direct and thus preferred one.

Should that second "in" be included?

"The IBM RS/6000, aka Deep Blue, is a general-purpose computer that uses a parallel processing computations and that is intended for applications in such diverse fields as in molecular dynamics and air traffic control."

Reads wrong and threw me off.

Just a friendly reminder to please please please include the question source whenever you post a question in the forums!

And in this case... unfortunately, this thing has tons of mistakes, and clearly isn't a valid, official GMAT question. Please don't waste your precious study time on it, friends.
