A loop of wire put in a changing magnetic field induces an electromotive force in the loops that, in turn, causes electric charges to flow.

This is likely testing subject-verb agreement, grammatically construction, and/or meaning. At first glance, the answer choices with "causes" are not in agreement with "electromotive force." This eliminates B and E from the get-go.

A. that, in turn, causes electric charges to flow

B. that cause electric charges to flow in turn

C. causing, in turn, electric charges to flow

A verb-ing modifier not preceded by a comma modifies the noun that immediate precedes the modifier. The "loops" cannot be "causing" the electric charges -- it's the force!

D. that, in turn, causes the flowing of electric charges

We try to avoid using complex gerunds ("the flowing of") when simple gerunds exist. For example, we prefer watching the stars instead of the watching of the stars.

E. and they, in turn, cause electric charges to flow
