IMO, D is the best answer.

"are" is the right usage for "a condition" AND "converse".
"it's" correctly conveys that the "converse" is of "a condition".

My bad, the possesive form is "its" not " it's ".

Thus, C is the best answer.

"its" is the possessive of "it", as "his" is the possessive form of "him"

it's is the short form of "it is" or "it has". it's does not indicate possession.

I like C also. Official answer?

Guys,

Am I missing here something? Many of you have chosen C. Is the word "are" appropriate in C? It says " there are a condition". How can we use "are" with article "a". Furthermore, "condition" is singular.

I was thinking of B as the best answer choice. Please let me know if I am missing anything. Thanks
