Such as is appropriate here
Eliminate A, B & E
Market is singular hence D is wrong

"market" is singular, thus A, B, D are out. In C, is not it necessary to put comma --- "commodities, such as aluminum and other metals, remains..." ? I don't know whether punctuation is checked on GMAT or not and is this the reason to eliminate the wrong answer :roll: I can't find other problem in C

IMO E.

Intended meaning is more clear in E than in C.
Example of commodities is given as aluminum and other metals, whereas its the commodities made of aluminum and other metals.
E rightly "compares" the two commodities.

I do not agree with E, so did some research.

Highly debated topic!

http://www.sentencecorrection.com/forum ... ommodities
****Above site showed me some attack warning*** I neglected and it has great explanation ***

Summary: C is the best as per the expert in that forum.

Do you have the source of the question?

Something more if it adds value:
