Because the body adapts more readily to lengthened days than to shortening them is why most people experience less severe “jet lag” when traveling westward than when traveling eastward.

lengthened days is a noun where shortening them is in verb form and these two are not parallel in comparative form more than

(B) The body adapts more readily to lengthened days than to shortened days, with the result that most people experience less severe “jet lag” when traveling

Although with structure appears a bit awkward, this sentence introduces no new errors and is correct.

(C) Because the body adapts more readily to lengthened days than to shortened ones, so most people experience “jet lag” less severely when they travel

Because and so indicate same purpose and are redundant in usage.
they travel is not parallel to traveling eastward.

(D) Because the body adapts more readily to lengthening days than to shortening them, most people experience less severe “jet lag” when they travel

days are lengthening is not preferred. other error repeats as in C.

(E) The body adapts more readily to lengthening days than to shortening them, so most people, as a result, who experience “jet lag” less severely when traveling

so and as a result make the sentence redundant here.
Lengthening is same as in D.

lengthened days is must parallel to shortened days

non underlined portion mentioned clearly is than when traveling eastward

so, the underlined portion must be parallel to non underlined portion.

when traveling westward than when traveling eastward looks better.

so, only option a, b and e does it.

among the options.

in A and E , lenghtened days to shortened days is parallelism not maintained.

so option B is correct.

apart from above error analysis, in option C usage of Beacuse is dependent clause,

it follow with independent clause. after comma usage of so becomes dependent clasue. so it is run on sentence and both usage of beacuse and so for reason
is redundancy.

option E usage of jet lag less severly usage is awkward.

Hi, This question can be easily solved by eliminating choices that show redundancy or pronoun errors. B is the best among all options.

It is OK to refer to an entire group (here "body") by using the definite article "the". Here "the" does not refer to a specific body but bodies of all human as a group.

The eye is our most valuable sense organ. ..correct.
