ii-they tend not to bother recovering a perishable treat
iii-tending not to bother to recover a perishable treat it
iv-tends not to bother recovering a persihable treat
v-tends not bothering to recover a perishable treat it

The subject verb agreement is tested here .The scrub is singular and hence it should be tends (singular) and not tend.
Only iv and v satisfy this condition.Option iv is idiomatically better .
