OA:

B suggests that humans practice a particular type of cloning, rather than cloning in general. In C ‘reflect’ should be ‘reflects’ to agree with its subject ‘practice’. D changes the meaning by eliminating the phrase ‘to the Raelians’. It implies the human life did come from the aliens’ cloning practices. The sentence as written says that this is just the Raelians’ view. E also changes the meaning by saying that humans should return to practicing cloning.
There is no suggestion in the original sentence that humans practiced cloning.
Choice A, then, is the best answer.

As coming from suggests that the human life is a practice of cloning experimentation conducted by aliens.

Does that help? or are you looking for something else?

Thanks,

(A) that humans be cloned, a practice that, to the Raelians, reflects the origin of human life as coming from cloning practices used by aliens thousands of years ago.

(B) that humans practice cloning reflecting the origin of human life as coming from cloning practices used by aliens thousands of years ago.

(C) humans be cloned which was a practice which reflect the origin of human life as coming from cloning practices used by aliens thousands of years ago.

(D) cloning of humans be practiced to reflect the origin of human life as coming from cloning practices used by aliens thousands of years ago.

(E) humans return to the practice of cloning to reflect the origin of human life as coming from cloning practices used by aliens thousands of years ago.


This is such a strange question for me. The sentence wants to convey that Raelians supports human cloning.

A) perfectly conveys said meaning.

B) lacks a working verb so this sentence is fragmented and therefore eliminated. Also the meaning of the sentence is distorted. Here in this choice, the sentence is saying that humans are practicing a version of cloning process that is reflecting the origin of life which totally makes no sense.

C) subjunctive error "advocate that ___ subjunctive verb" - that is clearly missing

D) same error as in C

E) same error as in E

Additionally, when advocate is use in a sentence it should be followed be {that + subjunctive} or {advocate + noun}
