(4) by which each molecule of water is attracted to those above it.


botanist contrast adhesion to/with cohesion
the correct idiom contrast X to/with Y
other idiom: compare X to/with Y


A.and cohesion, by which each molecule of water is attracted to those above it
comparison error.

B.and cohesion, for which each molecule of water is attracted to what is above it
comparison error

C.to the cohesion that attracts each molecule of water to those above it
parallel error & meaning error. now the sentence states that cohesion attracts molecules. this is incorrect.


D.with cohesion, by which each molecule of water is attracted to those above it
correct comparison idiom, parallel structure.

E.with cohesion, for which each molecule of water is attracted to those above it
for which - changes meaning
