tricky one...I see why many people got it wrong.

first SV pair:
the set has been published - A and B are out because of the SV agreement error.

second SV pair:
propositions were discussed - therefore, C and E are out.

D remains.

Does 'which' really always require a comma before? If not, then D looks more appropriate to me

"Which" refers to the preceding noun "propositions". Therefore, the verb should be in plural form.
Then, "The set [of propositions which were discussed by the panel] has been published in the society journal."

D rules out.

Best,

Hi,

C seems like a better option than D.
How can we use Singular and Plural to refer to the same subject?

There should have been a comma before "which" in option D. Otherwise option D would be technically wrong (though you would not find a wrong answer in GMAT just because of wrong punctuation).

Essential modifier : "that" without comma - refers to a subset: I hate dogs that bark - implies that there are a number of dogs (say 100) of which some bark (say 20) - I hate only those (20) that bark.

Non-essential modifier: "which" with comma - refers to all: I hate Dogs, which bark - implies that there are a number of Dogs, and I hate all of them - an additional information about the dogs is that they bark.

Now consider the given question:
Option C: Set that was discussed . implies that there are many sets of which one was discussed - that one set has been published: makes sense
Option D: Propositions, which were discussed: implies (all) the propositions were discussed - the set of these propositions has been published - also makes sense.

i disagree with the OA .C is prefect here .we need "that" to introduce essential clause ."which" is total wrong here

Completely agree with you....as that is not there, best alternative is option D.

I think a comma pair is missing in original sentence. The set of propositions, Which were discussed by panel, has been published. This correction explains the sentence. Its logical to say panel discussed propositions rather than saying they discussed set. As propositions are plural were maintains SV agreement.

As i know avoid eliminating an answer for misplaced comma on GMAT
