Note: This is the kind of GMAT question that's designed to eat up a lot of your time. The GMAC folks underline the entire sentence instead of underlining only a portion of the sentence like they usually do.
In these cases, it's even more important NOT to fall into the booby trap of reading every single answer choice.
In fact, look at this sentence through Framework: Laundry Lists - in order to help you group items and see where the main parts of the sentence are and identify which parts need fixing.
It's important to note that you may not necessarily have to read each answer choice in its entirety. To do so would waste a lot of time. Instead, look at the question in an intelligent manner and figure out where the problem areas are.
Are the problem areas near the beginning, middle, or end of the sentence?
Once you know where the potential problems are, focus only on those areas for the remaining answer choices. If you spot a problem, then you can easily eliminate that entire answer chocie without even reading through each of them completely.
Only when you narrow it down between two do you really need to compare the two options closely.
But in the elimination process, don't waste your time on reading parts of long answer choices that are designed to eat up your time.
