Picking E over A.
1) not only ...... but also
2) E is concise and ||.------> when they eat.....what they eat....
3) "them" in A makes me uncomfortable although I am not sure whether it is wrong.

Well, I pick A over E....

I am not sure if it in E has a clear referent... I don't think it can refer to what !!!

I'll go with E.

My take is -
E: it refers to the food eaten by the patients
A: them cannot refer to the food eaten by patients.

"them" at the end of B makes it the trap answer.

Clearly (E) here. that....it...

(E) is the answer. "It" cannot refer to anything else in this sentence.

Hmm... I'll vote for E... although I don't like the 'it' at the end of the sentence.

I am just a little confused here.

I do agree that E sounds very convincing and definitely more concise. But what is the 'it' refering to?? I know that it implies food. So is it ok to use the 'it' here?

Since I was not sure, I ended up picking B because them was refering to foods.

Any explainations would be helpful :)

Them in this case doesn't seem to refer to food. It kind of seems to refer to people! The "it" in E has to refer to food because there's nothing else mentioned in that sentence that "it" could refer to ...
