Please put a little title next to the SC as it eases my retrieving of the question. My computer is very slow loading those attachments and I have to open another screen one the Word document appears and I often get lost in which "SC" it is.
It's between C and E. I pick E because when talking about a condition, I believe passive voice is better.
Hence,
a heart attack which is in progress

sounds better than

a heart attack progressing

Quesion is:

The cardiac research center is experimenting with a drug called streptokinase that can stop a heart attack as they are still in progress.

(A)....
(B) as the progress.
(C) as it is still-progressing
(D) while still progressing
(E) while it is still progressing

Hmmm... I vote for C.

My question is: how we can tell for sure that "it" refers to heart attack or to cardiac research center or to the drug.

I ofetn get confused with this. Is there any rule of thumb to identify what "it" refers to?

E is OA.

Exactly it can refer to that drug, research center or heart attack. For me E was sounding better than D but that it was questionable.

Don't you think that generically speaking "it" should refer to the just previous element in the series.
