According to the latest Nature Institutes study, drinking kombucha tea may markedly slow the aging process and also aid to those struggling with body weight management.

A) markedly slow the aging process and also aid to
"aid to those" is not correct because aid is a verb here. "GMAT Club can be an aid to those wanting to take the GMAT." is right because aid is a noun in that sentence.

B) markedly slow the aging process and also aid for
"aid for those" is not correct because again, aid is a verb here, similar to A.

C)markedly slow the aging process and also aid
Correct.

D)markedly slowed the aging process and also aided
Can't use "slowed" after may

E)markedly slowed the aging process and also aid to
Can't use "slowed" after may

The intent of the sent : Drinking tea has 2 benefits --------

1. May slow the ageing process
2. May HELP ( replacing AID for easier understanding ) Individuals suffering from body weight

Vertical scan reveals only C fits the bill

C : Drinking tea may.....SLOW the ageing process...........AND.........HELP those suffering from body weight ( Parallelism Intact )

I know that:
I provide aid to earth quake victims.
I aid him on his preparation of the match
My aid in answering this question will appreciated.

Therefore, C is the only correct form of 'aid'

Hello ....Does anyone think that "And also" is redundant.
The sentence can simply use "And" ...Since the combinations is used in all 5 options I didnt pay much attention to it...But is incorrect in my opinion....
