(A) achieving a consistency of quality and production in farm animals as once thought to be
(B) achieving farm animals with a consistency of quality and production as were once thought of as - achieving farm animals sounds awkward
(C) achieving in farm animals a consistency of quality and production that was once thought to be - correct
(D) achievement of farm animals whose consistency of quality and production are the same as what were once thought to be
(E) achievement of farm animals at a consistency of quality and production once thought of as

achievement of farm animals in D and E also seems to be awkward

I agree with C but I could not figure out a grammatical error in A. Can someone please shed some light on (A)?

Actually Im with A. What has been achieved is the consistency, not the farm animals. A is the only option in which this is correct.

Can anybidy explain this?

I was confused b/w A and C and without replacing the options in the original sentence, I marked A :oops:, my bad. I think C is correct:

We have to read the introductory clause very carefully. I think the meaning of the sentence is - Scientists are approaching to implement the consistency (which was limited to manuf) also in farm animals. Let's plug-in A and C:

A) With cloning technology, scientists are approaching...goal: achieving a consistency of quality and production in farm animals as once thought to be limited to manufactured goods. [Meaning is changed here]

C) With cloning technology, scientists are approaching...goal: achieving in farm animals a consistency of quality and production that was once thought to be limited to manufactured goods.
[Use of the restrictive clause THAT is correct here to adhere to the correct meaning]

Fire the final bullet only when you are constantly hitting the Bull's eye, till then KEEP PRACTICING.
Failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough.
Getting defeated is just a temporary notion, giving it up is what makes it permanent.

Press +1 Kudos, if you think my post gave u a tiny tip.
