I guess (C) is good, but why "It" is written in capital letter?

One more C.

to do is suitable
to achieve is better than achieving.
it is the correct pronoun

(A) to do almost nothing to achieve that
(C) to do almost nothing to achieve It

I do not see why we should choose IT over THAT

I feel there is a typo in this question. How can C be the answer. C seems incomplete. I feel D is the best of the evils

I will go with C as well as the sentence is in subjenctive mood owing to use of "seems".

Also the usage of "but seems to do nothing ..." is better than "but seems doing nothing ...".

How do u guys choose between A and C.

I went for A.

But if C is indeed the answer, I think it's possible that "that" refers to "talking in great length about reform" and not just "reform".

Even I feel it should be (E).

Though I would prefer

does almost nothing to achieve it.

Thought it was E as well. :( Choices A, B, and C just all sounded wrong to me.

I'm reallly hoping there's an OA for this one!

I am not sure why C is right, it doesn't sound right.

I will go with E, what's the OA?

C for me.

The legislature seems....
... to talk at great length about reform but
....(seems)
to do almost nothing to achieve it(the reform).

C is the only correct one here.

Doing is not || with 'to talk'.

'THAT' points to 'talk about reform' rather than to 'reform'.

More preferable choice wud hav been:

Does almost nothing to achieve it.

In my opinion, answer should be C.

The legislature seems to talk at great length about reform but to do almost nothing to achieve it.

- Parallelism between "to talk" and "to do"
- Pronoun "it" refers to "reform"

I felt the choice is between D and E.

I would have gone with E.

D The legislature seems to talk at great length about reform but doing almost nothing in achieving any.

E The legislature seems to talk at great length about reform but doing almost nothing in achieving that.

"seems to" and "doing" are not parallel.

We can say "seems to be doing almost nothing....."

In this SC, we need ||ism "to talk" and "to do".

C is the best deal.....

(A) to do almost nothing to achieve that

C. both are parallel.

1. The legislature seems to talk at great length about reform but to do almost nothing to achieve It.

2. The legislature seems to talk at great length about reform but do almost nothing to achieve It.
