According to recent studies comparing the nutritional value of meat from wild animals and meat from domesticated animals, wild animals have less total fat than do livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat they think is good for cardiac health.

A. wild animals have less total fat than do livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat they think is

B. wild animals have less total fat than livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat thought to be

C. wild animals have less total fat than that of livestock fed on grain and have more fat of a kind thought to be

D. total fat of wild animals is less than livestock fed on grain and they have more fat of a kind thought to be

E. total fat is less in wild animals than that of livestock fed on grain and more of their fat is of a kind they think is
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I go with C, which maintains the parallel structure:

wild animals have less total fat than that of livestock fed on grain and have more fat of a kind thought to be

Any ideas?

A. wild animals have less total fat than do livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat they think is

>> "they" has no reference. Wrong.

B. wild animals have less total fat than livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat thought to be

C. wild animals have less total fat than that of livestock fed on grain and have more fat of a kind thought to be

>> "that" has no reference. Wrong.

D. total fat of wild animals is less than livestock fed on grain and they have more fat of a kind thought to be

>> "total fat" and "livestock" cannot be compared. Wrong.

E. total fat is less in wild animals than that of livestock fed on grain and more of their fat is of a kind they think is

>> "that" has no reference. Wrong.

I don't like (B), but I vote for (B).

Only 'B' looks good.

It is right that in 'C', 'that' refers to "total fat" but the comparison goes wrong,
it becomes, "wild animals have less total fat than total fat of livestock"...comparison of "wild animals with total fat of livestock "?

In 'B' comparison is correct & "wild animals have X and Y" is also correct.

Outstanding diagramming!

Agree that the OA should be B. "that of" in C is unparallel.

Am I the only one seeing a modifier here?

The first sentence should modify total fat, so I would choose between D and E. I would pick D, although the only problem I have with this sentence is, that is is a little bit unclear to what they refers.

the first sentence modifies a hypothesis that appears in the study. this hypothesis is stated in the following sentence. the modifier sentence does not modify especially "fat" or "animals". its not necessary that a modifying clause refers to a specific noun. its possible that it modifies an entire sentence. thats the case.
