What is the original source for this question? Also, I think that in the original sentence the word "in" should also be underlined. Thanks!

Hi subhajeet,
As I said in the thread for the other question, unfortunately we are required to obtain original sources for all problems we tackle; we'll be unable to help further unless you can obtain the original source for this problem. Otherwise, we run the risk that this is actually an official GMAT problem, and those are banned on this site. Sorry. :-(
