"Them" at the beginning of the sentence so it has to be plural so B and D are out -
E and C - it is unclear what it refers to - cows or farmer
IMO A

I will go for A.

"providing them with high-energy feed,and milking them regularly" is an adverbial clause. Even without this clause, the statement reads fine. Moreover, it also has parallelism.

B is out for "providing them.....milked them".
C issue of parallelism.
E changes the meaning.

D. provided with high-energy feed, and milked regularly, the Holstein cow produces
E. provided with high-energy feed, and milked regularly, Holstein cows will produce

between D and E

choose E because " an average of 2,275 gallons of milk each ". Each of the cows

This is very correct reasoning

OA is E

IMO "A"
B,D not possible because in the sentence mentioned is "them" so ideally cow is not possible
C not possible because "provided" and "milking" destroys parallelism
E not possible because "provided" & "milked" and "will produce" change of tenses takes place which is awkward

"providing them" with high-energy feed, and "milking them" regularly are parellel so has to be "A"

Sounds weird, but I think E is the best choice. What's the OA?

IMO E.

the subject of 'provide' & 'milk' should be 'Holstein cows'.
'Cows are provided with high-energy feed and milked regularly.' -> right expression.

Therefore A,B,C -> wrong.
Between D and E, E is correct because the subject must be plural.
-> ' farmers keep them cool'

Anyway, what is the OA?

We need a plural subject - cows- not "cow", B&D out. In C "provided" and "milking" are not parallel- so C is out. Between A and E. I chose E because i think that " provided with high-energy feed, and milked regularly, Holstein cows will produce an average of 2,275 gallons of
milk each per year for the farmer who takes care to keep them cool" sounds ok. On the other hand, cows are the object of the action, so i chose an -ed participial modifier. OA?

I know OA is E. Here are more thoughts...A and B are wrong since Holstein Cows can NOT provide them and milk them, here "them" is the cows, not the farmer. D is wrong since the verb is plural, not singular, so should be "cows" like in E. Hope it helps...

E. provided with high-energy feed, and milked regulary, Holstein cows will produce

Ans shud be E.
reason: it's the cows who shud be provided with feed and milked. If this is done then for the farmers who takes care of them, the cows will produce gallons of milk.
Correct me if i am wrong....
What's the OA?

them rightly refers to the plural "Holstein Cows".

"providing....milking..." are parallel and in proper tense for a modifer.

E - uses the wrong tense for a modifer.

D is the best answer. You can write away eliminate A, C, E because the author wants to make a generic statement here about the Holstein cows, and generic sentences always require simple present. Thats leaves us with B and D. Out of these D is the best answer

A. providing them with high-energy feed, and milking them regulary , Holstein cows are producing
B. providing them with high-energy feed, and milked regularly, the Holstein cow produces
C. provided with high energy feed, and milking them regulary, Holstein cpws are producing
D. provided with high-energy feed, and milked regularly, the Holstein cow produces - you want to keep the 2 verbs that modify the Helstein Cows - Provided and Milked in parallel (simple past in this case)
E. provided with high-energy feed, and milked regulary, Holstein cows will produce

What is the OA???
