i really love this question. it tests your knowledge of pronoun referents.

(A) a condition when it is present and indicate that there is one
the there in there is is a syntactic expletive. not wrong but look for a better answer.
one refers to condition, leaving the it in the stem without a referent.

(B) when a condition is present and indicate that there is one
same as A.

(C) a condition when it is present and indicate that it is present
all three its refer back to one pronoun (condition).
correct

(D) when a condition is present and indicate its presence
not parallel

(E) the presence of a condition when it is there and indicate its presence
redundancy

How is the last 'it' left without any referent...Cant 'one' and 'it' both refer to condition in this case...Like in C all 'it' refer to condition.

I think only the same pronoun can refer to the same referent
