Any medical test will sometimes fail to detect a condition when it is present and indicate that there is one when it is not.

A)a condition when it is present and indicate that there is one
B)when a condition is present and indicate that there is one
C)a condition when it is present and indicate that it is present
D)when a condition is present and indicate its presence
E)the presence of a condition when it is there and indicate its presence

Please explain, just saying its A or B is not going to help. I know a lot of people don't like to type too much, but even if you give one line of reasoning to support your answer, you are going to help me and yourself too :-D

It's the false positive/negative condition.

BTW: I agree about adding to a discussion topic. Just typing (C) contributes NO benefit at all to the poster.

Any test will (sometime) fail to detect a condition when it is present and indicate that it is present when it is not

C for parallelism and clarity.

In C 'it' has a clear acntecedent "condition" and so it qualifies to be the better option
