I think it is 'B'.

Because that modifies the 'emotional reactions' needs 'create'.

What is OA?

OA is A

can someone please explain why the word "that" in this sentence does not refer to "individual", but to "reactions" ?

how can you know to which word the "that" exactly refer ?

sorry guys, i missed a "s" in option B
B should be:
B) that creates unconscious physiological responses in turn.

i don't know whether the position of "in turn" can make any difference.

If anyone knows, please offer an explanation.

The use of lie detectors is based on the assumption that lying produces emotional reactions in an individual that, in turn, create unconscious physiological response.
A) that, in turn, create unconscious physiological responses.
B) that create unconscious physiological responses in turn.
C) creating, in turn, unconscious physiological responses.
D) to create, in turn, physiological responses that are unconscious.
E) who creates unconscious physiological responses in turn.

Explanation: The second "that" refers to the "emotional reactions" and hence "create" is the right choice becaause of the plurality of the "emotional reactions".
Also parallelism is to be used in the conjugation : lying produces......emotional reactions ...create.....

A it is. Emotional reactions in an individual that - here emotional reactions is followed by a prepositional phrase so that will not modify the noun in prepositional phrase but will modify whatever comes before prepositional phrase.

Does this hold true for EVERY prepositional phrase that I may come across in the GMAT?

My answer was A too, but the reasoning different.
Please let me know if you see any discrepencies in the reasoning

1. E is wrong because its the "emotional reactions" that create the psycological response, not the individual
2. B is wrong, because "in turn" needs to follow the prepositon that (which in turn refers to the "emotional reactions")
3. I cut C and D too - I was not comfortable with "in turn" after the verb "creating" and "to create". Since the "in turn" modifies "that" - a prepositon to "emotional reactions".

A is right

Please let me know if there is anything wrong in my justifications (especially 3 above)

I go with A.

A/ B straight. "in turn" is in wrong place in B.

Hence A

D is wrong since it says lying creates unconscious physiological response. "to create" is wrong

Its the emotional reactions that in turn create unconscious physiological response.

Here is the diagram

lying -> emotional reactions -> unconscious physiological response

I am still not clear why E is wrong.

"The use of lie detectors is based on the assumption that lying produces emotional reactions in an individual who creates unconscious physiological responses in turn."

Can someone please explain why can we not interpret the statement as 'it is the individual who creates the unconcious physiological responses' ?

Initially I was confused between A and B,however,B sounds weird.
I think A is correct, as "emotional reactions" is plural and agrees with the verb "create".

Rest of the options seem weird.
