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".

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.
