Guys, lets sort out this question!
I will post my view later.

A study commissioned by the Department of Agriculture showed that if calves exercise and associated with other calves, they will require less medication and gain weight quicker than do those raised in confinement.

(A) associated with other calves, they will require less medication and gain weight quicker than do
(B) associated with other calves, they require less medication and gain weight quicker than
(C) associate with other calves, they required less medication and will gain weight quicker than do
(D) associate with other calves, they have required less medication and will gain weight more quickly than do
(E) associate with other calves, they require less medication and gain weight more quickly than

'required' is wrong, present perfect is better

||ism is required b/w excercise...associate and require...gain.
The comparison is b/w two groups of cows...'do' is unnecessary and 'more quickly' correctly modifies the verb 'gain'.

To answer this question, you need to think of Parallelism and comparison.

All answer choices end up "gain weight quicker .. "

The correct follow up is the subject (i.e. no need to add "DO" after than)

POE eliminates A,C, and D

For parallelism, VERB AND VERB --> both verbs must be of the same tense.

I see where you are coming from, but D's "have required" seems a bit off. My vote goes to E.

'associated' -> wrong tense. should be present tense. A & B out.
present perfect in D ('have required') is not nescessary. D is out.
'required' in C is wrong tense.

E is best.

(C) associate with other calves, they required less medication and will gain weight quicker than do
(D) associate with other calves, they have required less medication and will gain weight more quickly than do
(E) associate with other calves, they require less medication and gain weight more quickly than

A, B - Eliminate - Use of "associated" - Verb Tense.
C, D - Eliminate - Use of "have" "required"..."will" - Verb Tense.

Hence E should be the answer.

A, B - Eliminate - Use of "associated" - Verb Tense.

Hence E should be the answer.

Does E not require "DO"? Is there someone who thinks E is grammatically correct choice? I think that E just sucks less. Otherwise, it is not a correct complement to the sentence - i.e. we need "do"
Any comment is welcome!

BTW, OA is E

I also think there should be a do tacked on at the end of the sentence.

Least of 5 evils.

these are the types of questions I hate. I agree with you that this is a conditional statement. It get's confusing because you would think it should be past tense.

Anyway factual present tense conditional statements use present tense verb in both clauses. I just went over it in Powerscore SC. Manhattan SC
only covers hypothetical conditional statements I believe.

factual past tense uses a past tense verb in both clauses

factual future uses present tense in the conditional clause and future tense in the independant clause

I choose E.

associate has to be parallell with require and gain.
