    Shiprock New Mexico

    Sponsored Ad:
    At Shiprock, New Mexico, a perennially powerful girls' high school basketball team has become a path to college for some and a source of pride for a community where the household incomes of 49 percent of them are below the poverty level.

    (A) where the household incomes of 49 percent of them are
    (B) where they have 49 percent of the household incomes
    (C) where 49 percent of the household incomes are
    (D) which has 49 percent of the household incomes
    (E) in which 49 percent of them have household incomes

    SPOILER: OA: D

    IMO C
    it is between C and D....i think where is proper usage to refer shiprock....

    (A) where the household incomes of 49 percent of them are - them is ambigous
    (B) where they have 49 percent of the household incomes - they ambiguous

    (C) where 49 percent of the household incomes are ==> no ambiguity where for shiprock
    (D) which has 49 percent of the household incomes ==> false meaning as people living in community has house hold income less
    (E) in which 49 percent of them have household incomes - them again ambiguous

    wow, again my ans matched with OA.

    IMO, Sanket, the community has low income so which is properly used.
    Somebody correct me, if I am wrong.

    Sanket, I think, the way this sentence is constructed " ... and a source of pride for a community ...", it's the community which is getting modified ... and hence D should be the correct answer ...

    And hence, the household incomes referred here must be of "community"'s ... not Shiprock's ...

    I also think that its the 'community' that is modified and not the 'Shiprock'. IMO E.
