I simply will guess C.

I believe - it - is properly used in C

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Agree with E for parallelism
should be verb + noun
Second part of C fails to have that

I will go with C, where It clearly refers to condition.

In E, it wrongly refers to presence rather than condition.

83. Any medical test will sometimes fail to detect
a condition when it is present and indicate that there is one when it is not.
(A) a condition when it is present and indicate that there is one
(B) when a condition is present and indicate that there is one
(C) a condition when it is present and indicate that it is present
(D) when a condition is present and indicate its presence
(E) the presence of a condition when it is there and indicate its presence

first I must say this is a bit tricky here but lets carefully eamined our oprions. firs teliminate A and B for using when there is one

Eliminate D and B for using when. my reason for eliminating these to is because medical test will faill to detect something or a condition and not when

E is wrong for using the presence of a condition when we can use xcondition as in Choice B.

B sounds clear and it is gramatically correct
