The answer is C

We need present perfect tense here as we can see the effects of the operation still now.
We need since to indicate the continuity of time .
Hope it helps

Because we are talking about a time in the past until now, we have to use have/has + past participle when we use since.

C is the only option

Can someone explain all the options? I did not have good enough reason to eliminate any options

(A) lost more than 180 pounds since having
(B) lost more than 180 pounds since having had
(C) has lost more than 180 pounds since
(D) has lost more than 180 pounds after
(E) has lost more than 180 pounds subsequently to


With "since" we use the present perfect or present perfect continuous. So A and B out.

With "after" we would use simple past in D.

The phrase is "subsequent to = after, following" in E, not "subsequently to".

A & B out because sentence needs present perfect tense as weight loss effect is till now.
D is out because we need since with present perfect tense
In E Subsequently is an adverb if it would have been subsequent still since is preferred in present perfect tense as since shows continuation of time.

IMO C

We require present perfect tense so we narrow down to C,D,and E. C is best
