My friend, I will get to some of those other links as I have time. My Magoosh job doesn't allow me to spend all day on GC.

Does all this make sense?

Take very good care of yourself, my friend. :-)

Hi mike,

I totally understand.
Although I am the student of Magoosh,
1/ I have no idea whether I can post GMATPrep question on Magoosh, and where to post if I can
2/ I know Magoosh tutors are busy, I am afraid my questions of OG and Magoosh are sunk through HELP bottom, or maybe my operation problem,
any hint to get quick reply on Magoosh ?

have a nice day

Dear zoezhuyan

My friend, I am happy to help. :-)

If you have paid for a Magoosh account, then you should be able to send a HELP ticket from any window in Magoosh, simply by clicking the "Help" tab. My understanding is that Magoosh will answer all Magoosh questions as well as all official questions, including GMAT Prep questions. It's also my understanding that the help tutors will respond to a ticket within a day or two. That's reasonably quick already.

Are you saying that you need replies faster than that? I am trying to understand what you are experiencing. Please be very specific in the description of your situation.

Have a good day,
Mike :-)

In option A, "that" is referring to "reaction". If thats the case, then "creating" will also refer to "reaction" and not "individual"

Can you let me know where I am going wrong?

Nah. Good point though. Think about these two sentence.

I bought the new iPhone from a retailer that has no headphone jack.

- it is pretty clear that in this sentence that the verb "has" is used for the noun iPhone and not the noun retailer. Most of the times GMAT will have sentences where modifiers set off by words such as which and that modify the closest proceeding noun, but in a few cases the noun has been separated by a small phrase as in this case from a retailer

However, if there are no modifiers at all the verb will invariable be acted by the noun proceeding it. For example,

I went to see her in the hospital feeling sorry. - WRONG

This might be okay in a conversational sense, but in formal writing, this does not work at all. The hospital is not really feeling anything (unless you are playing Resident Evil where hospitals are a living being that produce nurse-zombies, but we are not!)

I want to sit next to the girl wearing the dragon tattoo - The girl is the one wearing the fabled tattoo and not you.

General rule to remember - if there is an ING construction right after a noun (without a comma), the ING must refer to the noun, and for most of the cases on the GMAT it will be a wrong answer choice.

How come "that" modify a plural noun reactions? Isn't the use of "those" appropriate here?

Sorry, I'm late to the party here!

As others have mentioned, when "that" is used as a modifier, it can refer to either singular or plural nouns. This same discussion came up on this thread.

I think the confusion comes from the fact that the word "that" can also behave as a (non-modifying) pronoun. If "that" simply operates as a pronoun, it is always singular; "those" would be the plural version. More on the GMAT's many uses of "that" in this article.

I hope this helps!
