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.
