Between A and B, I`ll go with A because of the correct comparison "as" for similiar actions. C, D, and E are out for the wrong modifier.

"Besides adding complentary flavors to many foods" is supposed to modify hot sauces, so D and E is out.

B- "they" is ambiguous, is it modifying hot sauces or endorphins?
C- same problem

A as well.

hot sauces must be the S of the previous modifier.
D, E out.
C changes the meaning
Between A and B, A is grammartical.

Another one for A.
Hot sauces should modify "Besides adding complementary flavors to many foods" so C, D, and E are eliminated.
In B, "they" doesn't clearly refer to anything.

Also A.

D and E are out since the modifier must be followed by hot sauces, C is also wrong because it adds exercise to the equation and between A and B I cautiously vote for A, because of the as to compare actions.

The subject of "adding ...." must be "hot sauces" --> A and B stand.
A is better coz we need " norphine's " to indicate it's morphine's effect is comparable to "relieving effect"

A it is.

so many buddies of mine joined in this post ...this conjures up in me those memorable days

It should be A.
- "as" should be used to compare actions.

Agree, it's (A).

(B) would have to use "does" after exercise and it also uses wrong comparison "pain relieving effect" vs. "morphine"

C,D and E are out because of misplaced modifiers.

Between A and B, I choose A.

Go with A too..

B --> incorrect because it should be "like exercise does
C --> Sound as if exercises also add flavor to the foods
D and E --> sentence after comma starts with "endorphines" whereas it should start with "hot sauces".

OA is A.
But, as per Manhattan SC, "these" has to be accompanied always by a noun (these dogs, these carrots...), and never alone.
Could anybody clarify the correct usage of "these" alone in this sentence? Thanks,

These is the plural of this. These (this) functions as an adjective or pronoun. In choice A, the word "these" is a pronoun. When "these" functions as an adjective, there should be a noun after "these" or "this".
