Critical-thinking instruction is predicted on two assumptions: that there are clearly identifiable thinking skills that students can be taught to recognize and apply appropriately, and if recognized and applied, students will become more effective thinkers.

A. if recognized and applied, students - Parallelism issue - we need that after and
B. if these skills are recognized and applied, that students - Parallelism issue - we need that after and
C. if students recognize and apply them, that they - Parallelism issue - we need that after and
D. that if recognized and applied, students - illogical meaning - it suggests that that students are "recognized and applied", and that doesn't make sense.
E. that if students recognize and apply these skills, they - correct

We can eliminate A,B and C for parallelism issues; we need THAT. Now we are left with D and E.

D has two issues: meaning and tense. 'that if recognized and applied, students' is referring to students instead of skills, the intended meaning. In addition, we cannot mix past tense and future tense in one sentence; recognized, applied and will become.

E, by POE.
