When deprived of carbohydrates, its preferred fuel, the body is forced to burn fats and protein for energy, thus causing the formation of fatigue-inducing toxins.

(A) When deprived of carbohydrates, its preferred fuel the body is forces to burn fats and protein for energy, thus causing
(B) When deprived of carbohydrates, which are the bodyâ€™s preferred fuel, it is thus forced to burn fats and protein for energy, which causes
(C) When deprived of its preferred fuel, which are carbohydrates, the body is forced to burn fats and protein for energy, and thus causes
(D) The body is forced to burn fats and protein for energy when deprived of carbohydrates, its preferred fuel, which thus causes
(E) The bodyâ€™s preferred fuel is carbohydrates, and when deprived of them it is thus forced to burn fats and protein for energy, causing

A - "When deprived of carbohydrates, its preferred fuel the body is forces...." - comma is missing after fuel. "the body is forces" does not sound good to me.

C and D.

D - "...which thus causes" seems to modify preferred fuel.

C- " and thus causes.." - this new subordinate clause makes me to think that this is modifying the process of burning fats and protein.

i will go for C. not at all for A.
