(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

GMATNinjaTwo What is wrong with (A)?

Any medical test will sometimes fail to detect a condition when it is present and indicate that it is present when it is not.

Parallelism play a role in (C).


Do you have any idea why final it(in non underlined part) when we select option d, will have no referent. (As per Official explanation of OG)

teaserbae - I think you have seen GMATNinja parallelism video, if not look for my signature. find it and watch.

Now let see the choice C. the moment you see 'and', find basic structure around it. Basic structure is "detect X and indicate Y. This is why C is a parallel structure.

Quote:
(C) a condition when it is present and indicate that it is present
