It's very important for CEOs, board members, and other nonfinancial executives to
internalize the principles of value creation because doing it allows them to make
independent, courageous, and even unpopular business decisions
.
A. because doing it allows them to make independent, courageous, and even
unpopular business decisions
B. because doing that allows them to make independent, courageous, but even
unpopular business decisions
C. because doing so allows them to make independent, courageous, and even
unpopular business decisions
D. because doing so allow him to make independent, courageous, and even
unpopular business decisions
E. because doing these allows them to make independent, courageous, as well
as unpopular business decisions


Please help with the explanation of usage of "Allows"... What does it modify? Is it "internalize the principles of value creation"?

Thanks

The subject is compound and hence you need a plural pronoun 'them'.
Pronouns such as it, that and these do not have a specific antecedent to fall back on. Internalize is a verb and a pronoun can not refer to it. That is the reason that the adverb ‘so’ which modifies the verb of ‘internalize’ is preferable over ‘it’

Choice C is the correct one.
