I couldn't make ends or tails out of this sentence! Is this GMAT quality?

I think GMAT Hacks produces reputable GMAT like questions. I got this question correct and so have 4 in 10 respondents to the question and haven't achieved a high proficiency in SC yet. Just because a question is difficult does not mean the quality is poor. I will post the official explanation and hopefully that will provide some insights into the question for you.

Official Explanation

Answer: C Pay close attention to the structure of the sentence. The meaning of the sentence is important here as well. Structurally, it's possible that "adapting heart muscles" should be parallel to "relatively slow, easy running," but that doesn't make logical sense. Instead, changes to the heart muscle is being likened to adjustments in and around muscle cells. Thus, "adapting heart muscles" should be similar in structure to "adjustments in and around the muscle cells." The preferable construction, then, is "adaptations to the heart muscle" in (C) or (D). "Adaptations" is structurally and logically similar to "adjustments." (D) is incorrect as it moves "relatively" to a different position. In the original sentence, "relative" modifies the slowness of the running; in (D), it modifies "excellent," which is not only logically incorrect, but inelegant as well. Choice (C) is correct.

I got it correct based on grammar, but I'll be darned if I can figure out what the sentence is actually trying to state.

Yes that's exactly what I meant. I wasn't able to understand the logic of the sentence. That's why I asked if it's GMAT quality, since the meaning -to me at least- was ambiguous and unclear.

But you are correct, grammatically, some choices could be eliminated

Well I have to agree that the question is not like the Official Gmat questions.Hence, most gmat experts will tell you to practice from official sources only (at least in initial stages of your preparation) gmatprep, OG,verbal review,QP1,etc
