Official Explanation:

it would be easier to use the answer options. To ascribe already means to point to something as a cause, therefore the phrases to be the product of the or to be from the, are redundant and can be replaced by the more concise phrasing to the. Consequently, answer options (A) and (B) are eliminated. The underlined segment should refer to Zeigarnik, not the finding, since it is illogical that a finding would be reviewing results. Answers (D) and (E), however, both incorrectly attribute the reviewing to Zeigarnik's finding, as opposed to Zeigarnik herself, therefore both answer options are also incorrect.

A. Zeigarnik ascribed her finding, that people better remember tasks that have not yet been completed compared to ones that have been, to be the product of the tendency --> correct idiom "someone ascribed A to B"

B. Zeigarnik ascribed her finding, that people better remember tasks that have not yet been completed compared to ones that have been, to be from the tendency --> correct idiom "someone ascribed A to B"

C. Zeigarnik ascribed her finding, that people better remember tasks that have not yet been completed compared to ones that have been, to the tendency --> correct idiom "someone ascribed A to B"

D. Zeigarnik's finding, that people better remember tasks that have not yet been completed compared to ones that have been, was ascribed to have been the product of the tendency --> "reviewing the results" should be followed by someone/doer

E. Zeigarnik's finding, that people better remember tasks that have not yet been completed compared to ones that have been, to the tendency --> same as D
