Thanks.


Hi Swaroopdev,

"That" can be used as a sentence connector to connect clauses or can be used to "refer to a subject" of a sentence in order to meet the quantity of subject-verb pairs in a clause.

C is definitely wrong: the pronoun "that" cannot refer to a person - the correct pronoun should be "who".

A is better than C. OA corrected.

(Note: The modifier "with difficulty refraining from eating" depicts a typical exception to modifier touch rule - the following excerpt is from Manhattan SC guide -

In general, noun modifiers must touch their nouns. However, there are a few exceptions to the Touch Rule.
1. A “mission-critical” modifier falls between. The less important modifier refers to the noun plus the first modifier.

Its straight C.

for Defined, the proper idiom is 'as'. Hence B and D are out.

A and E are not parallel. Left C. Good one. Took me 2.50. Please could you specify the source.

C for me
defined X as Y is the correct idiom.
to be/to have - incorrect. B and D are out right away.

C maintains parallelism - one that X and that Y. so C is a good choice for the right answer
A has a slightly meaning error. handicapped with difficulty refraining from eating, or one with difficulty refraining from eating? A is out.
E is out, because we need a noun/pronoun after AS, otherwise, the usage of AS is not correct.

C is the best answer.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The major issue that you have to consider in this sentence is parallel structure. Only C has parallel structure. Choice C is the correct answer.
