rest adequately and race on synthetic surfaces must be same tense

also, since this is talking about the future the ending must be they are less likely to sustain an injury or illness than

hence answer E

+1 for E.

A tough problem.

if show-horses rest adequately between competitions and raced on synthetic surfaces => To maintain tense consistency of correlative actions, it should be either rested and raced or rest and race - A and B are out.

C and D are out because they suggest that the action has actually happened.

Left with E.

Representing consequence so less likely is correct

A simple thumb rule is that in cases of conditional sentences involving universal or factual happenings, the conditional sub clause will be represented by the simple present tense of the verb, while the main clause will be fixed with either a simple present or the simple future.

As per this copy- book style, E is the only fitting answer

Look at this link with a similar format of which I think this is a simulation a-study-commissioned-by-the-department-of-agriculture-showed-91173.html

A good concept to remember
