This question is testing whether you can differentiate between its and its.

Its= possessive pronoun of it; or itself
Its= contraction of it + is; or it + has

Clearly B.

GOing with B

Eliminate C, D because of the use of "are" for plural when it should be singular. Between it's ie "it is" and its, its is the appropriate form for the sentence.

I guess the OA is correct.
If you omit "there is/are," you will find that the subject of this sentence is "a condition and its converse"...it's a compound subject. Therefore, we use "are," not "is"
