A. as the body orientation controlling - comparison missing

C. as those (physical principles ) controlling the body orientation of

D. ones to control the body orientation of - awkward

E. ones used in controlling the body orientation of - wordy

I replace one or ones with the proper referent. Here the referent is principles.
So D become --> principles to control the body orientation of
& E become --> principles used in controlling the body orientation of
whereas C become--> as principles controlling the body orientation of
I agree D doesn't fit in but E after replacing the referrant(principles) looks better and clearer than C to me even though C looks slimmer.
Any takers???

E talks of principles 'used in'..In prior sentence, to which comparison is made,phrase used is - 'principles control' and not 'principles used in controlling/ to control'. Keeping the structure symmetrical, there is no need of 'used in'

no takers i suppose , where is the referent for ' ones used in controlling' ? who is using the principles to control anything ? E is clearly wrong , C is the only option which is adequate.
