Clearly E the winner perfectly modified the sentences...... and as mentioned in A which modify the national Association so is wrong.....

Btw this is the advantage of being Italians we eat tons of pasta every week compared to abroad we do have the highesr world wide consumption,...... If looking for past try to by the good one if available De Cecco is the best and do not eat it overcooked that is the major problem with it, when not taken on time is hard to digest and can slow u easilly .... go italian food...
