The standard framework of cap and trade is fundamentally conservative, in which a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price a company must pay to pollute.

A. standard framework of cap and trade is fundamentally conservative, in which a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price a company must pay to pollute(correct,in which should logically modify framework)

B. standard framework of cap and trade, a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price that companies must pay to pollute, is fundamentally conservative( why the clause has been inserted after standard framework of cap and trade)

C. standard framework of cap and trade—a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price a company must pay to pollute—is, fundamentally, a conservative one( comma after is incorrect)

D. fundamentally conservative standard framework of cap and trade is: a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price that a company must pay to pollute( incomplete sentence,no predicate after verb)

E. fundamentally conservative standard framework of cap and trade, in which a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price that companies must pay to pollute( verb is missing,in which should logically modify framework )


Will go with choice A for meaning.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks

A. standard framework of cap and trade is fundamentally conservative, in which a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price a company must pay to pollute(Wrong---IN WHICH incorrectly refers to conservative ( a verb) , in which should refer to noun( standard framework), therefore, wrong)

B. standard framework of cap and trade, a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price that companies must pay to pollute, is fundamentally conservative( 2 clauses IC are linked with a comma, violation of grammar rule)

C. standard framework of cap and trade—a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price a company must pay to pollute—is, fundamentally, a conservative one( Correct, It correctly states further info of standard framework by use of dash, and verb of main clause is stated at end)

D. fundamentally conservative standard framework of cap and trade is: a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price that a company must pay to pollute( changes meaning, Orginal argeument states standard framework is conservative ( a quality); however this option states about fundamentally conservative framework )

E. fundamentally conservative standard framework of cap and trade, in which a central body generally establishes a limit on the total amount of pollution that can be produced, allocates a certain number of permits, and then allows market forces to dictate the price that companies must pay to pollute( verb is missing,in which should logically modify framework

Kudos plz

What is wrong with option A?? I find it to be correct . Please help.

According to me, "in which" refers to the framework.

The use of in which in that position is not correct. Don't go by whether you can understand what the in which is supposed to refer to. This is not that type of decision.

For example:
The GMAT exam is tough, in which both quant and verbal skills are tested.
vs.
The GMAT exam, in which both quant and verbal skills are tested, is tough.

We can't go for the first one even if the reader can figure out what we are trying to say.

Hello,

I'm pretty sure that in Gmat, you can use in which to modify the subject in the case of S is ..., in which.
