A toughie; one for you narangvaibhav

Although considerable advances have been made in the area of health-care services, such as better access to health care, and increase in the numbers of physicians and other health personnel, still there is mounting criticism that large gaps in access, unbridled cost inflation, and excessive indulgence in wasteful high-technology “gadgeteering,” does remain.

Only C and E use 'do remain' to match with 'large gaps'.

Further, C's ' still mounting criticisms that' leaves the sentence incomplete.

Answer E's 'still there is mounting criticism that' makes the sentence complete.

Marked B first thinking does points to criticism. But seems like E as clearly do points to large "gaps"

Yes. E is indeed the correct choice. A small point but. The subject of the subordinate clause starting with that is a compound subject comprising gaps, inflation, and indulgence and hence a plural subject and not just because of gaps alone.

Good catch! Thanks!!

I thought there were 3 large gaps listed - didn't read this clause properly.
