A. If ==> No doer
B. if it is
C. if they are
D. when ==> No doer
E. when it is

OA TO FOLLOW


Firs split: S-V agreement.
who is allowed to remove and replace.....? Clearly, the restorers (plural). So B, E are out immediately because of "it".

Second split: Meaning
D and A have same problem, they do not show the doer? Who is allowed to remove and replace? The restorers or someone else?

IMO, C is correct, it tells us the doer-the restorers very clearly.

Waiting for OA.

I think it should be C as some one is required to remove and replace the colours and C provides us with the same ... hence C

My take : C

their should be a doer responsible for replacing and removing the discoloured layer of varnish.

"they" in C clearly refers to 'restorers'

This is a ‘first conditional’ topic with an ‘if clause’ that is in present tense followed by the main clause that is in the simple future. However, the catch is that there should be an ‘if clause’ with a verb and not an ‘if phrase’ with an Ed modifier.
That is the reason, A and D are out. B and E have SV error. Finally, therefore, C remains.

The sentence as written contains a dangling modifier, so beloved of the test makers. The structure is “… if allowed…., the colors…”. In the part of the sentence before the comma there is no mention of who or what is allowed. “Restorers” are allowed. You could correct the sentence by placing “restorers” or a pronoun to refer to them, such as “they”, immediately after the comma. The other way to correct the sentence, as has been done here, is to mention “they” in the first part of the sentence.
