IMO, it still would be E because "...targeted at an invading microbe or foreign
substance.
Here we have singular noun "a microbe" at which each antibody is targeted.

b/n each specifically targeted at and all specifically targeted at -- each .. sounds more correct.

each - used to emphasize separateness
all - used to emphasize togetherness

Each of you contributed to my understanding of GMAT: shows that individually, I've learnt something from each one of you.
All of you contributed to my understanding of GMAT: shows that you'll have helped me understand GMAT - it's more general.

Also, in the question "target at" is the correct idiom.

Hope this helps.

A, B & C are eliminated because the underlined section has to start with seemingly

Since it is against an invading microbe, it has to be each targeted specifically at...answers your extra options too...

So answer is E

I chose E.
reasoning behind - similarly is the right adverb.....and targeted at is the right verb.

IMO it is E.

"Seemingly" is the correct one so the choice is D or E.
"targeted at" leaves only one choice.

IMO E - due to similar reasons as mentioned above

Wats the OA ?

Guys ,

I did pick up E at the first reading of the snetence , as my ear was shouting that seemingly is the right word or adjective to be used here.
It will be good if someone can explain the exact grammatical construction and its necessity here. Can someone please do that, like seemingly and why not seeming etc etc

Simingly unlimited number - "Simingly" is an adverb here that modifies the adjective "unlimited". Only adverbs can modify adjectives. Here we cannot drop "unlimited".
Siming unlimited number - "Siming" is an adjective here that modifies the noun "number". In this case we can drop "unlimited"
Here "siming number" doesn't make sence, but "simingly unlimited..." is fine.
In every case you should check what modifies what.

Hope that helps.
