HI
Agree with D. After AS we need S+V construction so D is best.

D it is

To meet the rapidly rising market demand for fish and seafood, suppliers are growing fish twice as fast as their natural growth rate, cutting their feed allotment by nearly half and raising them on special diets.

a. their natural growth rate, cutting their feed allotment (OUT)
b. their natural growth rate, their feed allotment cut (OUT)
c. growing them naturally, cutting their feed allotment (we can shorten: suppliers grow fish twice as fast as they grow them naturally, but not suppliers grow fish twice as fast as growing them naturally -> so OUT)
d. they grow naturally, cutting their feed allotment (parallelism with raising)
e. they grow naturally, with their feed allotment (forbids parallelism with rasing -> so OUT)

I am going with A . I feel "as fast as" goes well with "growth rate" . So DCE is ruled out.
"cutting" in A maintains parallelism.

D for me. A and B out for ambiguous pronoun reference.

C out for poor construction. suppliers are growing the fish twice ----, cutting--- and raising------.
This is the parallel construction correctly presented in D.

To meet the rapidly rising market demand for fish and seafood, suppliers are growing fish twice as fast as their natural growth rate, cutting their feed allotment by nearly half and raising them on special diets.

(A) their natural growth rate, cutting their feed allotment
(B) their natural growth rate, their feed allotment cut
(C) growing them naturally, cutting their feed allotment
(D) they grow naturally, cutting their feed allotment
(E) they grow naturally, with their feed allotment cut

By the way, can somebody figure out what noun or pronoun "their" refer to? Thanks!

what is the right usage of as...X....as

we can eliminate B and E straight away !!!
then we have A,C and D eliminate A since as fast as rate is wrong

Between C and D !! I go for C since they in D appears to be referring to suppliers !!
also growing is parallel in C

To meet the rapidly rising market demand for fish and seafood, suppliers are growing fish twice as fast as their natural growth rate, cutting their feed allotment by nearly half and raising them on special diets.

a) their natural growth rate, cutting their feed allotment (growing is wrongly compared to natural growth rate)
b) their natural growth rate, their feed allotment cut (same as above)
c) growing them naturally, cutting their feed allotment (growing them naturally is incorrect)
d) they grow naturally, cutting their feed allotment --- Error free
e) they grow naturally, with their feed allotment cut (Growing and cutting should follow parllelism)

Can we get some explanations here?
OA is D.
Why not A, and isn't "they" in D ambiguous?

In A and B,

comparing " suppliers growing fish" with "rate" --> that is illogical

In C
growing them naturally --> nobody grows fish naturally..they grow naturally by themselves.

between D and E

D looks good

B and E can be taken out because of lack of parallelism
Among A, C and D, A can be taken out because of faulty comparision

For ex:- The correct way is - I'm going twice as fast as you do. the elements of comparison( in the bold) should be consistent(subject or object but not both). The ideal comparison should be between a subject form and a subject form or between an object and another object.
Incorrect :- I'm going twice as fast as the normal speed

In C the comparison is between fish and sea food(subject form) and them(object form) hence C is incorrect

Therefore D is correct.

PS:- It was only after knowing OA, that I could make sense out of the sentence..... I worked backwards
