Option C correctly expresses the comparison comparing the likelihood of intended outcome with actual possible outcome!

I think the issue is with parallelism of verbs.

A) leading...slow down - Not parallel.
B) make..slowing down - Not parallel
C) lead - slow - Parallel - Correct
D) lead - slowing - Not parallel
E) increases - Should be increase as it's referring to a plural word - 'transfusions'.

Waiting for the OA.

Cheers!

Parallelism + comparison

Will go with C here ...

(A) have a much greater likelihood of leading to infections among the recipients than they have to slow down. (Parallelism error)
(B) make infections among the recipients much more likely than a slowing down of-(make infections not correct)
(C) are much more likely to lead to infections among the recipients than they are to slow down( looks correct except I have a doubt on much more)
(D) make it more likely to lead to infections among the recipients than slowing(no antecedent for it)
(E) increases the likelihood of infections among the recipients while slowing down( while changes the meaning)
So answer should be C.
