Shouldn't every pronoun have a clear referrant? What is the 'it' in E referring to?

refer to "what patients eat"

Yeah, but can pronouns refer to a noun clause rather than just a noun?

I think I will stick with A.
I might have chosen E if it had "when they eat them" instead of "when they eat it".

(A) not only by the foods patients eat but also by when the patients eat them
(B) by not only the foods patients eat but also by when the patients eat them
(C) not only by the foods patients eat but also by time when the foods are eaten
(D) by not only the foods that are eaten by patients but also by the times the foods are eaten
(E) not only by what patients eat but also by when they eat it

Good point Kripal.. but it sounds like since Noun Clauses stand in for nouns, if a pronoun un-ambiguously refers to one, it should be OK.
