I pick E

There out 2 issues that stuck out, 1. if and then, 2. parallelism, since this is an assumption.

A B, and C are if and then, but the 1st part of the sentence is not, and shows no parallelism.

D- what is this in reference to?

E- best choice. Clear reference, and parallel construction.

skills cannot be effective thinkers, so it should be students that THEY refers

but what is the OA

OA = E
I picked D for this problem. I didn't pick E because I feel "they" in D has no clear reference. However, it is probably the best choice out of all as the adj in D has no clear reference at all. I can see why "these" clearly refers to skills and "they" refers to students.

i guess E is not correct cuz 'they' has no clear antecedent..it may refer to skills or students..

I think they clearly refer to students
"that if students recognize and apply these skills, they"

students - subject skills - object
subject pronoun "they" will refer to students and not to skills.

Am I correct?

||ism brings you to DE. E is much better because it establishes who is doing the action here.

D: is ambigious.

E.

E for me too. for // ism

Two assumtions - that and that and the second reason is it clearly states that its the students who recognize and apply these skills
