Although they is sort of ambigous here however i wouldn't eliminate on that basis alone as sometimes that might be accetable on GMAT. Other reasons are : in using is incorrect -> it changes the intended meaning of the sentence. Executives don't examine a firms's environment in using to decide blah blah..Eliminate A,C and E. the proposition in is moved back in B but it doesn't make it correct. D wins.

Another 1 min explanation is remove everything between commas and D clearly wins.

The only thing that I used for elimination- non underlined part has "examine" so the parallel part should have "decide" .

Down to A,D and E

Of these 3 only D makes perfect sense to me.

E- sounds absolutely nonsensical.
A- the usage of "in " before and is doubtful to me ?

Any other ways to eliminate A and E ?

The normative model of strategic decision-making suggests that executives examine a firm’s external environment and internal conditions, and in using the set of objective criteria they derive from these analyses, can decide on a strategy.

A. conditions, and in using the set of objective criteria they derive from these analyses, can decide

B. conditions, and they use the set of objective criteria derived from these analyses in deciding

C. conditions and, in using the set of objective criteria derived from these analyses, deciding

D. conditions and, using the set of objective criteria derived from these analyses, decide

E. conditions and, in their use of the set of objective criteria they derive from these analyses, they decide

My ans:
Meaning:
The model suggests that executives examine .... and decide on a strategy analyzing the derivation done using the set of objective criteria.

1. The normative model of strategic decision-making suggests
that executives examine a firm’s external environment and internal conditions,
and
in using the set of objective criteria they derive from these analyses,
can decide on a strategy.

A. Can decide is wrong . There is no subject for this.
B. conditions,
and they use the set of objective criteria derived from these analyses in deciding

IC{ That DC}, and IC ..Meaning is hampered as the last part is parallel to "The normative model of strategic decision-making suggests" rather than to "that executives examine".

C. ,in using the set of objective criteria derived from these analyses,
deciding-> deciding is not parallel with the examine.
prep+v1-ing at the staring as modifier is not necessary. Only v1+ing is fine.

By going to puri, I came to know about the Jagannath.
Going to puri,I came to know about Jagannath.- Second is good

D. conditions and, using the set of objective criteria derived from these analyses,decide - > (Parallelism met, this middle modifier is referring the sub which is common--> A good learning)

E. conditions and, in their use of the set of objective criteria they derive from these analyses, they decide- run on .

The beginning of the sentence begins with "suggests", therefore it is in subjunctive mood. The sentence then follows with the verb "examine" in the subjunctive mood. In order to maintain parallelism (and subjunctive mood), the last verb "decide" must also be in subjunctive mood. Therefore only answer choice D follows.
