Hi all, while I greatly appreciate the efforts of the person who drafted and contributed the question, I must argue that this question needs to be completely discarded. It's asking students to choose from 5 different wrong answers. Nobody writes like this. And if they do, well, then they are definitely not native English speakers (and the question writer's country of origin is pretty obvious :) )

I'm not an expert, but the GMAT is written by native English speakers, and no native English speaker would ever consider any of these answer choices anywhere within the realm of acceptable. As it is, the current US president finds new ways to butcher the English language every day; there's no need to do the same just to create a clever 700-level SC question :)

Hi,

Indeed was a tricky question. Got played by ..'such as' followed by 'such'. However one more reason that made me spend time on this was the example part.
SUCH AS "That it is good to....". Why did we have both "That and It". Couldn't it be "such as it is good to ..".

Best-
Amit


I guess it is because in the absence of that it would be required to keep the example in inverted commas e.g.
- In no other industry would firms resort to such an idiosyncratic idea such as "it is good to milk their best suppliers dry" as in retail-food sector of the west.

The use of inverted commas gets eliminated by the use of that, just as we see in Direct vs Indirect Speech.
- In no other industry would firms resort to such an idiosyncratic idea such as that it is good to milk their best suppliers dry as in retail-food sector of the west.

As I said, this is my guess! I would rely on response from experts.
