Among the safest of all perishable foods modifies yogurt. It can't modify pathogens as pathogens are not safest food.

Among the safest of all perishable foods, pathogens cannot grow in yogurt because it is highly acidic.

(A) pathogens cannot grow in yogurt because it is highly acidic (starting prepositional Phrase is illogically talking about Pathogens(pathogens are not food rather they are some kind of virus)
(B) yogurt's high acidity prevents the growth of pathogens (starting prepositional Phrase has to modify a noun not the possessive form of a noun)
(C) yogurt is highly acidic and does not support the growth of pathogens (starting prepositional Phrase is modifying a most logical noun "yogurt")
(D) the high acidity of yogurt prevents the growth of pathogens (starting prepositional Phrase is modify the acidity, which is not a food)
(E) it is hard for pathogens to grow in yogurt because it is highly acidic (We want an entity right after the starting prepositional Phrase and we do not have any in this sentence)

We need subject after comma which indicate a perishable food item

(D) the high acidity of yogurt prevents the growth of pathogens
(E) it is hard for pathogens to grow in yogurt because it is highly acidic


KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



C

The sentence begins with a modifying phrase, “among the safest of all perishable foods,” so the main clause of the sentence, the underlined portion, has to begin with the noun that this introductory phrase modifies: yogurt. This leaves us only one choice: (C). Choice (B) is not a possibility because a noun in the possessive form, like “yogurt's,” cannot be the subject of a sentence, and cannot be modified by an intro- ductory modifying phrase.
