HI..

If you look at the Underlined portion in Original sentence....

"A crippling disorder for many young women, anorexia nervosa is" -
Appositive modifier "A crippling disorder for many young women" correctly modifies "anorexia nervosa"
BUT "IS" requires some description of disease, a description that is missing as the non underlined portion starts with WHEN..


E correctly changes IS to DEVELOPS, thus correcting the usage of WHEN in non-underlined portion.

E

The non-underlined word when indicates a conditional relationship. The verb is is an absolute action. For this reason, the form of the verb to be is not acceptable. Hope that helps!
