Can anyone kindly explain the solution ?


The official explanation discusses each of the options individually. If you have query about about any specific explanation, please highlight it so that we may discuss the same in details.

I think this is a high-quality question and the explanation isn't clear enough, please elaborate. What is wrong with "in which" as per meaning it is functioning same as "where ".

The preposition "in" is wrong.
I live in an island..... wrong.
I live on an island..... correct.

For the same reason, option A is wrong.

Hello Experts !

#1
(B) The pronoun 'one' has an unclear antecedent; it could refer to The island of Tasmania or a territory
Does it really matter whether the 'one' refers to 'island of Tasmania' or 'undeveloped territory' (which is actually modifying the island of Tasmania). I mean it still conveys intended meaning, since the undeveloped territory is the island of Tasmania as per the ques statement.
#2
Also, is the expression ""has a reputation as a rugged, undeveloped territory."" correct idiomatically? Should it not be "has a reputation of a rugged, undeveloped territory".
What is 'as' doing here ?
Comparison - No
Role/function - No
Show two simultaneous action - Nope
Reasoning - No

Thanks in Advance ! GMATNinja

Please explain option D vs option E. Also, why is "island’s reputation is rugged and undeveloped" illogical ?
