D. proper diet results

Keep things parallel

1) the form
sensible exercise and proper diet
"adj + noun" and "adj + noun"

2) the tense
Common knowledge tells us ....
Present tense. So "results" seems the correct tense.

I would go with C
A) not parallel --> eating properly is present participle+adverb. We need some noun form to have proper enumeration
B) wrong tense
C) gerund = noun. Pick this
D) wrong conjugation. Should be "result"
E) same as A on top of wrong conjugation

C, gerund is used as noun and compound subject get right verb number- result.

Good catch Paul. I fell for the 'results'...
but i would agree with Paul on this one. Gerund=noun and the plural form of result = result.

I have some issues with Nova Press Gmat SCs.
Due to some reason either their SC explanation is not convincing enuf or their SC has typos. I faced a couple of SCs in which the ans was obvious (so far as where GMAT_English is concerned), but the ans was different!

I agree, D is clearly incorrect with this "s".
However Oa said I was right :P he he he

B seems to be the only other possible correct choice
