Lucky, where do you get these questions? I googled and did not find any of your questions. Can you prove that this question is from manhattan gmat?

answer is c
A : wordy was expensive to such a degree etc etc
B: wrong use of idiom" so X that Y" is correct usage.
C: correct grammatically.
D: awakward + its better to use comma to separate separate two parts.
E: semi-colon not really required + the it in the first part is redundant.

hope it helps

D and E have illogical meaning issues.

A,B are too wordy and convoluted. The principle of logical construction and concision is satisfied by choice C.

This one is definitely a bit unique. Looks like we will have to take a number of concepts into account.

Looking at A, I cannot see any real errors but I do see an inappropriate phrase. ‘expensive to such a degree’ is really wordy and could easily be replaced with ‘so expensive’. It is a pretty bad choice for the GMAT. D is also kind of awkward and, more concretely, its missing a comma. E is the most awkward of all. ‘it’ is redundant, since it refers to ‘the test’. I was a little stuck between B and C but I think I get it now. B is unidiomatic. The correct form is ‘so_ that _’.



Thus, C is the correct answer.
