Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

I solved this in just 20 seconds. {Correct}. And I just hope that time saved thus on my exam would help CR and RC sections.

SPLIT1) PARALLELISM. "TO SALVAGE…TO PROCESS" IS THE CORRECT PARALLELISM. OPTIONS B AND D ARE OUT.

SPLIT2) PRONOUN AGREEMENT. THE SECOND PART OF THE SENTENCE USES PRONOUNS TO REFER BACK TO CITRUS, CITRUS IS A SINGULAR NOUN SO THE PRONOUN YOU NEED SHOULD BE SINGULAR. "THEM IS PLURAL". A AND C ARE OUT.

(A) to process them quickly into juice concentrate before they rot when warmer weather returns

(B) if they are quickly processed into juice concentrate before warmer weather returns to rot them

(C) for them to be processed quickly into juice concentrate before the fruit rots when warmer weather returns

(D) if the fruit is quickly processed into juice concentrate before they rot when warmer weather returns

(E) to have it quickly processed into juice concentrate before warmer weather returns and rots the fruit


Keep getting this one wrong:( Need detailed explanations..

All four options A, B, C, and D have pronoun ambiguity. they or them cannot refer to citrus as citrus is singular.
Hence we are left with only one option E. and E is indeed our answer.
