A for me. All the other options "achieving in farm animals a consistency" or "achieving of farm animals a consistency" are wrong. "consistency" has to immediately follow "achieving" because it is the object of "achieving"

The as once though to be in A choice suggests that farm animals were limited to manufacturing goods which is senseless.

Choice C corrects his issue. Other choices achieving in farm animals and achievement of farm animals are stupid.

In C, it seems "that" refers to "quality and production". But if that is the case, I do not understand why they have used "that was" and not "that were"

"that was" refers to "a consistency", not to "quality and production"
